About this title

Synopsis:

A trip to the Revere Public Library proves fatal for thirty-six-year-old Yolanda Fiore. Her body is found early one morning at the bottom of the library's staircase. The evidence shows she'd been struck on the back of the head before her fall.

In this fifth Periodic Table Mystery, retired physicist Gloria Lamerino is not inclined to take on another murder investigation--her romance with homicide detective Sergeant Matt Gennaro is all the contact she needs with the Revere Police Department.

But Gloria will do anything for her lifelong friends and current landlords, Rose and Frank Galigani, operators of the Galigani Mortuary. So when their son John is arrested for murdering Yolanda, his former girlfriend, Gloria goes in search of the real killer.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Camille Minichino's Mysteries Featuring Gloria Lamerino

"An impressive series." --Publishers Weekly

"Gloria Lamerino is smart and funny--an absolute delight!" --Tamar Myers, author of Gruel and Unusual Punishment

"Dr. Lamerino and her supporting cast are real winners." --Lori Fairweather, author of Blood & Water

"Enough clues to give the intelligent reader some guesses at the solution, a dash of romance, and (what a relief) a heroine who doesn't jog." --Charlene Weir, author of Murder Take Two

"Minichino's touch is perfect--light, deft, and full of detail. And her heroine, the snooping, good-hearted, savvy Gloria Lamerino, is a wonderfully unique and loveable creation. Open this book and you will be caught. Finish it, and you will be left awaiting anxiously for the next installment in the Periodic Table Mystery series." --Roland Merullo, author of Revere Beach Boulevard

"A solid, grown-up series, well plotted and well peopled, with dialogue that keeps you smiling." --Shelley Singer, author of Royal Flush

"Gloria Lamerino is my kind of heroine: independent, resourceful, intelligent, good-natured--and, best of all, real." --Selma Eichler, author of Murder Can Upset Your Mother

"Minichino had better write faster. Readers won't be satisfied until she's covered the entire periodic table." --Penny Warner, author of Blind Side

"Physicist Gloria Lamerino is both an intelligent and appealing heroine who's impossible not to like." --Susan Holtzer, author of The Wedding Game
