A brilliant (and beautiful) French mathematician is distressed by governmental misuse of her algorithm which accurately predicts accidents and disasters that previously were only determined probabilistically.
The story  narrated by her British, excop, artist boyfriend  never really gets into the details of how such an algorithm would work mathematically, but there is plenty of mathematical namedropping. We learn during an interview that she was originally inspired by Wiles' proof of Fermat's Last Theorem (which happened when she was 10 years old) and by the Langlands program. Apparently, her thesis advisor, based on these same ideas, conjectures an actuarial application of the TaniyamaShimura conjecture. The story also mentions chaos theory (Julia and Fatou), and gives a very brief biography of Sophie Germain.
Risqueman was a second place winner in the 2009 Hubbard Writers of the Future awards from Locus Magazine and was consequently anthologized with the other winners. So far as I know, that is the only published source of this very interesting work of mathematical fiction.
