The Winship Affair (Blue Mustang Press) is a new murder mystery novel with a scientific touch written by Phil Temples of BC’s Computer Science Department. According to the publisher, The Winship Affair is the story of eccentric, but brilliant multidisciplinary scientist Carrie Bloomfield who receives a mysterious package from a deceased colleague. She soon discovers that its secrets could lead to technologies that might revolutionize the world’s energy supply. But it seems that a shadowy international corporation knows about the materials, too. They’re determined to have it for themselves. And they’re not about to allow the law, ethics — or especially, a quirky scientist — to stand in their way. Temples is a past recipient of the Boston College Community Service Award and a longtime volunteer for the University’s Read Aloud program.
