Physics Can Be Fatal

( 2 )

Overview

Alan Sidebottom was what some outside the rarified world of academic physics might call a superstar. In the realm of string theory, black holes, and the Higgs-Boson particle, Sidebottom was a celebrity. So, when tiny Cushing College snagged him for their faculty, all the physics professors were excited--and threatened. It seemed that most of them had personal reasons to despise Sidebottom.

Overview

Alan Sidebottom was what some outside the rarified world of academic physics might call a superstar. In the realm of string theory, black holes, and the Higgs-Boson particle, Sidebottom was a celebrity. So, when tiny Cushing College snagged him for their faculty, all the physics professors were excited--and threatened. It seemed that most of them had personal reasons to despise Sidebottom.

Edwina Goodman, one of Cushing's youngest physics professors, and one of the few who held no animosity towards the newcomer, was given the daunting--and unwelcome--task of escorting Sidebottom around campus. So, when the great man was found dead shortly after his arrival--apparently murdered--Edwina believed it her responsibility to track down her charge's killer. Would her scientific brain be able to ignore the fact that the entire pool of suspects apparently resided within the walls of her very own department? Or would the young police detective Will Tenney spark a different kind of investigatory zeal in Edwina?

It remained to be seen, for all was not as it first seemed in the world of invisible particles and mathematical equations--at least not at Cushing College. And the murder of one noted physicist might not be the last.

    Haunting...Grodin draws the reader into her emotionally complex

    Haunting...Grodin draws the reader into her emotionally complex story right from the beginning, with lush descriptions of this beautiful landscape, and vivid characters with whom we can readily empathize. Hers is a stunning and memorable debut.
    The characters are well developed and I found myself empathizing with all of them. Very human. I would certainly recommend this book and feel it would please a wide audience.

    A must read mystery

    "Physics Can Be Fatal" is the perfect cozy murder mystery set in a quaint college town and the beautifully descriptive narrative will keep you turning pages. The main character, Edwina Goodwin, is incredibly likable and engaging and leaves you wanting to read more about her and Police Detective Will Tenney (I love the chemistry between these two!). I do hope this becomes a murder mystery series. I found myself wrapped up in the world of academia at Cushing College and wanting to go back to school for my Doctorate in Physics because the story line is so intriguing. Suspenseful and thoughtful I applaud Ms. Grodin for writing such a poignant murder mystery and can't believe it's her first, because it's crafted like a pro! Highly recommended, enjoy!
