A new mystery in this unique series based on the 109 elements of the periodic table plunges plucky physicist Gloria Lamerino into an explosive mixture of hard science and sudden death. Synthesize Angela Lansbury's Jessica Fletcher with pure essence of Sue Grafton. Add a pinch of Patricia Cornwell as catalyst. Stir vigorously, then stand back--because once this formula starts to fizz, it's definitely volatile. Someone could get killed.In fact, someone does--an elderly janitor at a government-funded lab in Revere, Massachusetts--and when the homicide cops investigate, their first reaction is that they need the expert assistance of someone who knows her way around the table of elements. That would be Gloria Lamerino, retired-physicist-turned-scientific-consultant to Revere's police department, and the feisty, adventurous, intelligent heroine of Minichino's provocative and original series of mysteries.

It isn't long before Gloria develops a hypothesis: The lab's hush-hush lithium experiments aren't the only secrets she'll uncover before her research project is done, if she lives so long. After all, one man's dead already--and lithium can be very deadly.

Featuring an engaging, not-so-young heroine with both brains and hips; her lovable boyfriend, Matt Gennaro; and a quirky, believable cast of Italian-American characters, this thoroughly gripping thriller is clever and precisely plotted enough to rival Agatha Christie . . . if she'd only had a Ph.D. in physics and a Yankee twang.

It has all the twists and turns I have come to expect from a Gloria Lamerino mystery. I fear this may be the last one as it is only a novella, not a full-length novel like the previous eight. Now that she has Gloria marrying Matt, the author may be finished with this series.
I am enjoying the series very much. It's a pleasure to have protagonists who are not the typical young beauties, and whose personalities are mature. The mysteries are not difficult to solve before the story ends, but the combination of science and fiction and the realistic yet humorous characters make each of Minichino's books interesting and fun.
The heroine is a different type. I like the use of the periodic table for these books. It is a great format. There aren't enough chemists bringing their view into other areas. There aren't many chemists/novelists. This series gives a fresh perspective and takes up interesting topics. I enjoy this series
I've thoroughly enjoyed all the books in this series. And, unlike many other authors writing mysteries today, Ms. Minichino writes books that I can send to my mother after I am finished reading. Her books focus on character and plot, and don't require vulgar language or explicit sexual reference to propel the story. I eagerly await the remaining 100+ books required to complete the periodic table!
He hates all of them for their scorn of him even after four decades of cleaning up the messes left behind by hotshot scientists at the University Physics Lab. However, janitor Michael Deramo overhears a group of scientists discussing hiding a potential environmental problem involving lithium batteries. The seventy-two years old Michael expects a big payoff to keep quiet. Instead, he is silenced in a more deadly manner.
The Revere, Massachusetts police turn to their science consultant, retired physics professor Gloria Lamerino, to help them with the technical aspects of the investigation. Though expected to stay out of harm's way, Gloria begins to make inquiries among the researchers and the victim's family. She quickly uncovers the environmental hazard, but realizes that Dereamo's murder goes deeper than just the labs of research. As she further digs into the case, Gloria places herself in danger from a killer who wants to remain anonymous.
The third periodic table murder (see THE HYDROGEN MURDER and THE HELIUM MURDER) is an entertaining cozy that provides readers with a fresh amateur detective. The story line is taut and the chemistry between Gloria and a police officer augments the tale. Readers will need a leap of faith in the fact that the police do not fire Gloria for her extracurricular activities but the novel and its previous stories are worth the leap. With over 100 elements to go, sub-genre fans have plenty of novels by Camille Minichino to look forward to enjoying.

I loved this book, and not only because it's set in Revere, Massachusetts, my and author Camille Minichino's hometown. Historic Revere Beach was America's first public beach. Its unique urban location, just north of Boston, and Italian-American citizenry are perfectly captured in the third volume of Minichino's mystery series based on the 109 elements of the periodic table. The author herself is a retired physicist who deftly combines science, mayhem and mid-life romance into a crisp modern thriller. Gutsy, zaftig physicist-heroine Gloria Lamerino and Revere police detective Matt Gennaro are more than friends (but just barely!), and you won't find a single expletive in these pages. Yet, Minichino's wry tale of blackmail and high-stakes laboratory chicanery mirrors today's headlines. In short, THE LITHIUM MURDER is good, clean fun--with an edge. You'll learn something about physics and these touching characters will soon seem like old friends. Go, Gloria! Deborah M. Nigro, author: 'The Winthrop Case'
Reading the third Minichino science-murder mystery was like visiting old friends: you can't wait to hear and learn what's new. The adventures of Dr. Gloria Lamerino, a retired scientist turned police consultant, are heating up, and so is her sentimental life, long neglected during her scientific career... Industrial physics and the pressures on scientists turned salesmen come to life, and you will learn willy-nilly about the promise, uses and hazards of lithium batteries, while enjoying the yarn. Living in danger above a mortuary, testing her brain and brawn, and enjoying italian american food and Revere friends suits Gloria...Am waiting for the Beryllium mystery...
This third visit to the periodic tables brings the reader into yet another scientific mystery. I marvel at the concept of a retired physicist as the protagonist. Having worked with many such scientists in my career, I could not envision even the most brillant of them in the dogged pursuit of a killer who garrots his victim to death. Yet the author makes such a concept totally believable. This is enjoyable reading yet it forces the reader to expand their knowledge. The plot and structure of the book works perfectly in luring the reader into the tale.
