|Colonel Victoria Valiente is an important figure in the Communist party of Cuba. However, her husband is a famous mathematician, Manuel Pardo. Manuel's job allows him to travel widely and he becomes disillusioned with Castro's regime. Together, Victoria and Manuel enter into a dangerous and complex plot in this politically motivated thriller. I have not actually read the book, only reviews, but have no reason to think that mathematics plays an important role in the book. If you do read it, please contact me with information about any additional mathematical content you might find!
(Thanks to Peter Freyd for sending a review of the book.)
Actually, there is no math in this book at all. It is frustratingly slow to get going. The author could have done the first 200 pages much more effectively
