Philosophy: Understanding and Interpreting Contemporary Science
Pro Quo: Study in the History of Drugs
Monks or Die! by Maxine Kumin
The setting is
Montandino, California. This small desert town depends on the Grayson Research Laboratory
for its economic well-being. In this little kingdom, Chief of Police Diego
"Digger" Martinez is the Eagle, and Dr. Harold Baranoff is the King. Brought in
to revitalize the Graysmith Lab, Dr. Baranoff has moved into primate experimentation with
a single-mindedness that's attracted the well-publicized opposition of animal-rights
activist Carla Strombaugh and the terrorists calling themselves the Mercy Bandits. He's
found dead one Easter, soon after receiving an anonymous threat: "QUIT MONKS OR
DIE!'' As monkeys disappear, affairs are revealed, and corpses are discovered, Maxine
Kumin nimbly switches points of view among a circle of likable characters.
Pulitzer poet Kumin has dispensed with lyricism in her first murder
mystery, but her love of animals, which permeates her poetic works, is present in full
force as the impetus for this neatly plotted tale.
