From Kirkus Reviews
Mysterious killings at the Olympique Scientific Internationale (an eminent astronomer, an investigating police officer, an annoying scientist turned amateur sleuth)--committed by what sounds, from the one surviving witness's account, like a werewolf--flush out formidably brainy Niccolo Benedetti and his Nick-and-Nora satellites Ron Gentry and Janet Higgins (The Hog Murders). Despite the hints of the supernatural, this is pure Agatha Christie, with negligible characters, a novel (but unconvincingly evoked) setting, ingenious clues, a most-unlikely-culprit, and a shameless theft of two of Christie's favorite clichs of misdirection that shouldn't fool you for a minute. For retro fans, a pleasant enough couple of hours. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

In this book, Bennedetti's assistant, PI Ron Gentry is accompanied by his wife--psychologist Janet Higgins--who provides considerable insights into the intriguing characters, such as: p. 34: "She doubted anybody would want to study the workings of other people's minds if they found their own uninteresting" and p. 35: "Criminals, no matter how small-time, no matter how frequently they went to jail, were invincible egotists...Mostly, people stole and beat and killed out of an overweening sense that they had the right to whatever they wanted, to the gratification of every whim."
This is a fun series, I plan to read more--and more Matt Cobb as well. I believe he has also written under the name Philip DeGrave & also writes historical and espionage novels.
