a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|This is another thriller set at Bletchley Park during World War II. Many of the characters are described as mathematicians and Alan Turing is mentioned occasionally, but math is definitely not the center of attention in this novel. Instead, the plot concerns the pieces of amber that one of the women working in Hut 6 has been receiving in mysterious packages from Russia and what they might mean about the fate of her biological father.

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.
