HASH(0x92605bac) von 5 Sternen superb scientific mystery 27. April 2005
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Retired scientist Gloria Lamerino and her fiancé Matt Gennaro are in Berkley California to attend the wedding of her close friend scientist Elaine Cody to retired chemist Phillip Chambers, a consultant to Dorman Industries. Phil's daughter Dana is still traumatized by seeing her EMT partner gunned down while bringing their patient Lakesh Patel to the hospital. Mr. Patel dies in the hospital and the killer makes off with his duffel bag but Dana brings home his briefcase what contains severed ID's under different names including access to Dorman Industries.

When Phil and Gloria meet, she isn't impressed with him but her mild feelings of disdain turn to severe anxiety when Dana confides that somehow the briefcase wound up in her father's apartment. Patel and Phil collaborated on several papers involving nitrogen weapons research. When Phil disappears, Gloria and Matt work together to try and figure out the connection between the dead scientist, the stolen research and the multiple identifications that Mr. Patel carried.

There are very few mystery authors today who can incorporate a lot of scientific data into the story and make it part of a one sitting thriller as Camilla Minichino consistently does. She makes the science understandable so reader can learn while they are being entertained. The protagonist of THE NITROGEN MURDER is spunky, strong-willed and totally loyal to her friends, which endears her to the audience. The relationship between Gloria and Matt is believable and affirms that there is life after retirement.

HASH(0x92c28e70) von 5 Sternen disappointing 7. Juli 2006
Von Old Dick31 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a retired chemist and fan of cozy mysteries I looked forward to what I thought based on the reviews would be a good new author with a scientific twist. This book is my first by Minichino. The involvement of Nitrogen in this was so superficial and sketchy as to look contrived. The two plots (nitrogen research and stolen medical supplies) were loosely tied together and very poorly developed.The connection was very forced and not convincing. The development of all the male characters was very, very poor with little dialogue. They were all vaguely there, even Gloria's fiance. The only good spot and character was the "star" Gloria and she kept me reading. But, I kept wondering when is this all going to tie together and where is the substance?

In summary, though the book had its interesting parts the overall conclusion was dissatisfaction and the feeling that it was put together to meet a publishers deadline. I might look for an earlier episode in paperback, but definitely never pop for a hardcover again.

HASH(0x92c5e264) von 5 Sternen Two Murders, Stolen Drugs, Secret Nitrogen Files, and a Missing Scientist 27. August 2005
Von L. Kelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Retired physicist Dr. Gloria Lamerino is visiting California with her fiance, Revere Police Detective Matt Gennaro. Gloria's best friend Elaine Cody is getting married in two weeks, and Gloria and Matt are in Berkeley to help with the celebration and have a little vacation. Just as soon as Gloria and Matt arrive in California, though, trouble strikes when they learn that Tanisha Hall, a young paramedic gunned down at the door to an Oakland hospital is the partner of Elaine's future daughter-in-law. The plot thickens when they learn that the patient being transported to the hospital (who later dies of his wounds) is an Indian scientist working on highly classifed research pertaining to powerful new explosives using newly discovered nitrogen molecules. Gloria and Matt begin to suspect that Elaine's fiance Phil Chambers might be involved in the two murders. When Phil suddenly disappears, no one is sure if he's just gotten cold feet about his wedding or if he is running from the law.

There's a lot of interesting and well-tied together plot lines in this book. In addition to the mystery of the two murders and the missing Dr. Phil Chambers, there are some missing drugs and medical supplies, stolen from the ambulance company, which are found in the murdered paramedic's home. As in all the stories in this series, author Minichino sprinkles in a healthy dose of scientific knowledge. The information she gives on newly found nitrogen compounds and their use in new powerful explosives is really fascinating. The characters in this series are well-developed and very believable.

Being a former resident of the California Bay area myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the Berkeley setting. Whether or not readers are familiar with the previous books in this series, I highly recommend "The Nitogen Murder" as a very entertaining mystery.

HASH(0x92c5eb70) von 5 Sternen Great science mystery without being too scientific for lay people 24. Oktober 2006
Von Dawn Dowdle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Retired physicist Gloria Lamerino and her homicide detective fiancé Matt Gennaro are in Berkley, CA, to help her friend Elaine prepare for her wedding. Elaine's fiancé, Phil, is a fellow scientist, but he rubbed Gloria wrong from the minute she met him.

Phil's daughter's EMT work partner is shot dead by what is believed to be a mugger. Gloria is soon suspicious because of the information Phil seems to have about the shooting and the patient his daughter was helping transport when her partner was shot.

Gloria's suspicions of Phil soon alienate Elaine, but when Phil goes missing, everyone joins together to try to locate him. Plus Gloria is sure that this has something to do with his work and the shooting. Can she find him in time to save the wedding?

I really like Gloria. Even though she is a scientist, I don't feel these mysteries are written so that laymen can't understand even the scientific talk. I like that. This is a great cozy series that is such an easy read.

This one being set in California was fun. It was Gloria's old stomping grounds from years ago, so she knew people and places. Made it all more believable. I highly recommend this book and the series.

Camille Minichino is a favorite mystery writer of mine, and this book I thought was even more suspenseful than some of the others in the series. They are all beautifully written, well-plotted, and feature retired physicist, Gloria Lamerino. As other reviewers have said, she is intelligent and determined, but she is also a great friend. This one is set in Berkeley, CA, where she formerly worked and where her friend, Elaine Cody, is getting married. Gloria has come with her own future fiancé, Matt, who is in law enforcement, to be maid of honor at Elaine's wedding. A rich and complicated plot unfolds from there, and some of Gloria's friends from her home in Revere, MA are also involved. The author introduces characters well, and the pace is quick. The resolution is also beautifully handled.

One feature that helps to add suspense is the way that the author builds the action toward the end of a chapter, but then leaves the reader to fill in what happened. Usually the next chapter returns to a different thread, and for these juxtapositions, the author changes from first person (Gloria's telling of the story) to narration (for the goings-on of other characters). We don't find out exactly what happened until two chapters later when the first thread comes back again. Some readers might find this choppy, but I love it! Once you know to expect her writing to skip in this manner, it makes you smile every time it happens, and for me, it contributes to that "I-can't-put-it-down" feeling. It all comes together beautifully in the end.

If you like Minichino's writing, her newer series with an academic setting, where she is writing as Ada Madison, might be one to check out too. Both of these series are at the top of my list among cozy mysteries.
