The second book in the series containing 45 mathematical puzzles woven into a string of adventures involving Dr. Jacob Ecco, “mathematical detective”. From its preface:
|(quoted from Codes, Puzzles & Conspiracy [a.k.a. Dr. Ecco, Mathematical Detective])|
Like its predecessor The Puzzling Adventures of Dr. Ecco, this book is dedicated to people who love to think and enjoy thrillers. Ecco, Evangeline, and Scarlet use mathematics and logic to battle a hidden conspiracy, and you are invited to enter the fray. The story revolves around original mathematical puzzles that you are as well equipped to solve as the protagonists.

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.
