Summary

Summary

When an Argentine math student discovers the smothered body of his landlady, conventional wisdom points to a family member with the most prosaic of motives. But then renowned logician Arthur Seldom, author of a book on the mathematics of serial killers, tells of a strange note left in his mailbox. The note indicates that the murder is the first in a series linked by a mysterious pattern. Each new death is accompanied by a different mathematical shape. It seems that the serial killer can be stopped only if someone can crack the next symbol in the sequence. The leading Oxford logician and the math graduate team up on a quest to crack the cryptic clues.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Math and murder mingle in this intriguingly cerebral mystery…a stylish, intellectually meaty whodunit.” Publishers Weekly
“Despite some references to Fermat’s Last Theorem, even the ‘math-phobic’ should have no problem enjoying this cerebral whodunit. Narrator Jonathan Davis shines as Professor Arthur Seldom, characterizing him with a melodious Scots brogue. Davis’ embodiment of the professor drives the narrative, which is also helped by careful differentiation of the other characters. Especially splendid is Davis’ rendition of a lively Irish nurse, who also happens to be the love interest of the young South-American narrator.” AudioFile
“Should be read for atmosphere and fascinating applications of logical sequences to crime-scene investigation.” Booklist
“An elegant, fashionable, award-winning novel mixes murder with modern mathematical theory…Soft-spoken, smart, and satisfying.” Kirkus Reviews
