This was the first of the periodic table mysteries I've read, and I love it. I live in New York and thought Minichino did an excellent job with the setting, providing lots of details and contrasting Gloria, with her scientific mindset, and her more historical and fashion oriented friend Rose. I know nothing about ozone, which is at the heart of this mystery, so appreciated the lessons embedded in this tale of blackmail and intrigue. The clues were deftly spread out and focused on all the senses. ...more
Retired physicist, Gloria Lamerino and her husband, Matt Gennaro, a homicide detective in Revere, MA are in NYC for a police conference. Gloria goes to Matt's niece Lori Pizzanno's apartment to return her glasses, and finds a dying woman. Lori is making a documentary about ozone, and is concerned about local companies who don't follow the letter of the law. Gloria insists on snooping to find the guilty parties.

This was a hardcover used book purchase for me. Set aside for my summer reads...
Not as good as some of the earlier books in the series, but the author has a nice twist on the mystery genre. I just got tired of reading, over and over, about Gloria's obsession with physics and her best friend's obsession with shopping. Those replays probably added 100 pages to the book.
i learned there are special mysteries, even for science nerds. not much action, but they passed the time for me. i read several in the series (blame insomnia) - each has an element in the title!
I like science. I like women protagonists. But I'm disappointed in this series. This is the second I've tried and I can't understand this woman's reactions to anything that happens. Bafflement.
By our dear family friend Camille. A fun mystery set in NY :-)
