|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
book, just some reviews, so if there is more to say about it than this,

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.
