|In this sequel to The Sudoku Murder, the former government mathematician who has taken over the puzzle museum in her old hometown catches a serial killer who leaves a sudoku at each crime scene. There are a few references to her old job, some discussion of her attempts to help school children with their math, and a tiny bit of math in the puzzles, but there really is not much math here. Still, if you're looking for a decent murder mystery with just a bit of math in it, this one is worth a look.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
