Elissa D. Grodin is a physics buff who writes mysteries featuring Edwina Goodman, an assistant professor and theoretical physicist at an Ivy League college in New England. Edwina, who often kayaks on the river in order to do some of her best thinking, is self-effacing, indefatigably curious, and brilliant. Her boyfriend, Will Tenney, is a police detective in their little college town of New Guilford. With her uncanny ability to analyze cause and effect, Edwina occasionally proves herself to be of invaluable assistance to police investigations. Her mathematical way of seeing the world allows her unusual insights into the most baffling cases.

Elissa Grodin lives in Connecticut and New York City.

Dear Readers and Film Buffs,

Please treat yourselves to the immense pleasure of reading Anthony Lane's piece about the late, great actor, Christopher Lee, in the current issue of The New Yorker.

Swoon!
