The Oxygen Murder by Camille Minichino

Review by Dawn Dowdle  

Gloria Lamerino, a retired physicist, and her fiancĂ©, Homicide Detective Matt Gennaro, head to New York City for a vacation with their best friends Rose and Frank Galigani before Christmas.  They plan to visit Matt's niece Lori Pizzano, a documentary filmmaker.  Rose plans to shop and take in shows and to get Gloria to participate with her as much as possible.  Matt is there to attend an NYPD conference. 

Lori is doing a documentary on ozone and environmental issues.  When Gloria goes to her apartment, she stumbles over the body of her camerawoman, Amber Keenan.   

Later Gloria learns that Amber had been scheming, and there is an abundance of suspects.  Can Gloria enjoy her vacation while finding a killer?  And can she help Lori stay safe in the process? 

Before I read my first book in this series, I worried about it being full of science jargon.  It's not.  The author has done a great job of presenting needed information without taking you out of the story.  And all the technical data is in layman's terms. 

I really like Gloria and Matt.  They are a great couple with real problems and issues to deal with.  The New York location of this book adds to the story and provides great ambiance.  I highly recommend this book and the whole series.
