The Carbon Murder by Camille Minichino is the 6th book in the Periodic Table mystery series. Gloria is caught up in a murder investigation when a student of her goddaughter is murdered and her goddaughter becomes a victim of a stalker. Her boyfriend Matt is also diagnosed with prostate cancer and she has to juggle with caring and supporting him as well as helping her goddaughter. I enjoyed this next addition to the series. Gloria is becoming a great investigator and I love learning scientific fa ...more
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.
Dragged a lot, and I was happy to finish it off at last. This book comes somewhere in the middle of the series of "chemical murders' or something like that, but was my first book. A young lady is seemingly being terrorized by her psycho boy friend as well as a colleague she loathes. And hell breaks out when they both are found dead (not simultaneously). Her mother's friend sets in to investigate and comes across a scam. Thereafter the plot deteriorates. First half was interesting. But after that ...more
I have not read his book but looks like a fun mystery book along with the other types of series's that are out there. The book is about a physicist teaching physics to a high school classroom and in her spare time uncovers illegal medical experiments run by a someone whom doesn't seem to stop the murders. 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
I LIKED this book, as I have liked the previous five in the series, but, at the end of the book, I was a little confused. Despite a lot of talk about carbon, buckyballs, and nanotubes, I still don't know quite what that had to do with the series of murders. I'm not sure whether I missed something, or the author did not explain adequately.
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!
