Camille Minichino grew up about a mile from Revere Beach, Massachusetts, the setting for her periodic table mysteries. Like her amateur sleuth, Gloria Lamerino, she has a Ph.D. in physics and has had a long career in research and teaching. Creating and teaching special classes in science literacy for nontechnical people has also been one of Camille's favorite occupations. She is a volunteer with Project Literacy at her local library, and is a member of the Mystery Writers of America Camille lives with her husband in the San Francisco Area, where she is working on The Helium Murder.

Review:

"Minichino has created a clutch of interesting suspects." -- Publisher's Weekly

"Physicist Gloria Lamerino is both an intelligent and appealing heroine who's impossible not to like, and there are enough satisfying plot twists to keep you turning pages right to the end." -- Susan Holzer, author of the Anneke Haagen Series

"The Hydrogen Murder is a stunning debut for Camille Minichino. You'll love Gloria Lamerino and her friends. It's a good thing the periodic table is big enough for a hundred more adventures on Revere Beach." -- Janet Evanovich, author of the Stephanie Plum Series

"This first novel in a new series is a real find. Not only does Minichino, herself a physicist, clearly explain the scientific concepts relating to hydrogen and superconductivity, but she also offers a tightly constructed mystery with appealing, sympathetic characters. And her Boston ambiance holds its own with that of Parker, Tapply, Higgins, et al. There are numerous physician/medical examiner sleuths at the moment; now there's a physicist on the beat, too, and a very good one. Minichino is currently working on The Helium Murder, the next in the series. Watch for it." -- Booklist

"Witty physicist Gloria Lamerino provides fascinating insight into the mysteries of science. Minichino had better write faster-readers won't be satisfied until she's covered the entire periodic table." -- Penny Warner, author of the Connor Westphal Series

After retiring from teaching, fiftysomething physics professor Gloria Lamerino becomes a scientific consultant to the police department in her suburban Boston hometown. When Eric Bensen, a young physicist, is found murdered in his lab, Detective Seargeant Matt Gennaro asks Lamerino to determine whether the death was related to Bensen's research on hydrogen and superconductivity. Despite threats and a break-in at her apartment - made doubly spooky because Lamerino lives above a friend's funeral home - the scientist-turned-sleuth doggedly investigates, uncovering fraudulent dealings by members of Bensen's research team. This first novel in a new series is a real find. Not only does author Minichino, herself a physicist, clearly explain the scientific concepts relating to hydrogen and superconductivity, but she also offers a tightly constructed mystery with appealing sympathetic characters. And her Boston ambiance holds its own with that of Parker, Tapply, Higgins, et al. There are numerous physician/medical examiner sleuths at the moment; now there's a physicist on the beat too, and a very good one. Minichino is currently working on The Helium Murder, the next in the series. Watch for it. John Rowen Booklist 12/15/97 -- John Rowen, Booklist, 12/15/97
