|Cold war spy thriller in which our hero must help an aged Soviet
mathematician escape to our side of the Iron Curtain. (I haven't read the

please let me know!) |
This book actually has absolutely no math in it at all. It was a quite enjoyable narrative but here is the entirety of math in it: "Hoffner demonstrated that energy itself is space locked up in a certain pattern. His proof involved an audacious development of non-Euclidean geometry which was as revolutionary as Einstein's theory of relativity." That's it.
