(click on names to see more mathematical fiction by the same author)

Essentially all I know about this book is that it is a murder mystery which takes place in 6th century Constantinople and that the primary suspect is a young mathematician. Unfortunately, I do not read Greek and so cannot say anything else about it. If you have read this book, please write to let us know more and I will post the information here.

Thanks to Vijay Fafat for bringing this work of historical fiction by a frequent author of mathematical fiction to my attention.

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.
