LET'S GET COZY! THE QUOTIENT OF MURDER: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE QUOTIENT OF MURDER 
A Professor Sophie Knowles Mystery 
BY ADA MADISON

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Dr. Sophie Knowles loves using puzzles to make math fun for students. But when winter seizes Henley College, she must thaw out a cold case to track down a killer—her most difficult puzzle yet . . .

Winter Intersession is in full swing, and campus is buzzing over the concert celebrating the bell tower’s reopening. The building has been shuttered for twenty-five years, and Sophie’s shocked to learn why—a student leapt from it to her death. But she’s even more troubled by the secrecy surrounding the case. After Sophie performs some quick calculations, she’s left with a nagging question: Was it really suicide?

When one of Sophie’s favorite students, a performer in the concert, is brutally beaten and left in a coma, Sophie’s mind kicks into overdrive. The horrific incidents seem too coincidental to be unrelated, but can Sophie put together the pieces from a twenty-five-year-old murder before any other students get hurt? 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
As Ada Madison, she's published 4 novels in the Professor Sophie Knowles Mysteries, featuring college professor SOPHIE KNOWLES. The latest is
THE QUOTIENT OF MURDER from Berkley Prime Crime.


As Camille Minichino, she's published 8 Periodic Table Mysteries, featuring retired physicist GLORIA LAMERINO. The latest is a re-issue of THE HELIUM MURDER on Kindle. Camille has published 17 novels and many short stories and nonfiction articles.
As Margaret Grace, she's published 6 novels in the Miniature Mysteries series, featuring miniaturist GERALDINE PORTER and her 11-year-old granddaughter, Maddie. The latest is MIX-UP IN MINIATURE from Perseverance Press.
 

Camille received her Ph.D. in physics from Fordham University, New York City. She is currently on the faculty of Golden Gate University, San Francisco. Camille is on the board of NorCal Sisters in Crime. She's a member of NorCal Mystery Writers of America and the California Writers Club.
