About the Author
The author's two previous books, The Oblong Dots and The Zero Mass Machine, were technological thrillers. His third book, The Farnsworth Murders, departs from the technical genre and puts the reader in the middle of a confidence game and murder. The setting is a small town in Ohio, and the story is presented in a charming almost-noir style, complete with a huge mansion, a butlers, a cook, and a gardener. J. R. Murphy is a retired electrical engineer who finds time to read, write, and ride bicycles. He lives with his wife in Morgantown, WV.
