    1. So what was I thinking right?Picked this book up simply on a whim and because the title made me laugh and I just had to know what made nerds kill and what this book could entailSo I read all two hundred plus of the quirky silly little mystery along the same vein but a cheap knockoff of the Agatha Christie masterpiece "And Then There Were None" and even the more recent murder mystery "Death and The Lit Chick" by G.M. Malliet where a bunch of authors or important people get together and all their [...]


    2. PROTAGONIST: Paul Turner, Chicago PD homicide detectiveSETTING: Science fiction convention in ChicagoSERIES: #8 of 8RATING: 3.0A science fiction convention would appear to be the perfect setting for a murder. First of all, you have a higher than usual percentage of, uh, unusual people. Secondly, many of the participants feel compelled to attend in costume, thereby masking their true identities.Paul Turner, homicide detective with the Chicago Police Department, doesn't really have any interest in [...]


    3. 2 1/2 starsComplaints first and foremost: Why do mystery authors feel they have to dump on SF/F cons? Don't they have mystery cons they can dump on? They never have anything nice to say about the people who attend cons and when they do, it's almost always a back-handed complement. Yes, I'm pointing at the author oftoo.And, the only thing on the cover that has anything to do with the plot is the sword by the way.So, the bulk of this story takes place over the course of a Saturday at a SF/F conven [...]


    4. In the 8th Paul Turner mystery, we find the detective taking his sons and friends to the SF Convention.Of course what should be a fun event turns into a murder mystery when one of the authors who is participating is murdered brutally. Detectives Turner & Fenwick are called to investigate the murder, the prominent elderly author is found run thru with a broadsword and wearing a Xena warrior princess costume.The detectives find many suspects that both loved and hated the woman.They also find m [...]


    5. I liked the setting - a SF convention in Chicago - because it felt familiar and reminded me of cons I've been to in the past. The gay part of it consisted of the main detective who lived with his partner and their two sons - there was nothing explicit and normal, every day affection between the two and had really nothing whatsoever to do with the story and how the mystery was laid out. Not a lot of setting the scene - I could picture things because I've been to events like this but someone who h [...]


    6. "Nerds Who Kill" pits Chicago police detective Paul Turner against a serial killer at a local science fiction convention -- which he is attending with his two teenage sons and an eccentric neighbor.The investigation itself makes for a detailed police procedural. What I liked best about this book is how it described the family dynamics between Turner, who is gay, his partner Ben, their family and friends. Why? Because the book portrays them as regular people instead of cookie-cutter stereotypes. [...]


    7. Paul, his sons, and his boyfriend Ben go to a Sci-Fi convention when bodies start turning up. What do you do when there are over 100k people at the convention and one of them may be the murder? Turner and Fenwick, with a little help from some friends track down the killer before they get too close to his family.


    8. KI tried to finish this book, but found I just didn't care. I have no idea what originally brought me to these books, and how I actually read all of the ones that came before it.While the Paul Turner series is better than the Tom & Scott series, it still isn't very good.


    9. A mystery at a sci-fi convention. A little ho hum, but the main character is a gay Chicago police detective. There's no sex in the book, which the cover implies and the story is more plodding procedural than thriller, but it was enjoyable.


    10. Have read many of his other books--was a fast easy read and I like the characters--the main character is somebody I wouldnt mind having as a friend


    11. I like the series. This book felt a little tedious. It took me a while to read it through. Still, it's worth a read.
