I haven't read any books in this series, but I was able to keep up with the story.
The story is about Gloria Lamerino , a retired Physicist, who helps her boyfriend with his job as a policeman. Gloria's god daughter moves back to her hometown. However, it seems trouble follows her and two people she knows turn up dead.
Interesting, but in places the story kind of drags.

The book looks engaging from previous reviews. I recommend it since it emphasizes an experimental and critical analytical approach of the case. Can be a fun class discussion and interaction wit...more
This is my first book in this series. The main character is a professor type person who is called on to give expert advice on a case dealing with something related to her field of study. The character seems to find a case wherever she is.

Interesting learn a little science/chemistry while you're reading. It keeps you guessing!
