a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|Sam is a young math student from Australia who travels to England seeking information about her grandmother. She finds that her quest becomes intertwined with that of a Spanish historian investigating the disappearance of one of his ancestors in the 16th century.
Although the author is usually known for his mysteries, this is not a detective novel. The book focuses more on the interaction between the two protagonists whose personalities are quite different. In particular, Sam plays the careful "logician" in contrast to her Spanish colleague's more "spiritual" approach to life.
(Not yet released in the US...but I'll let you know here as soon as it is.)
Thanks go to Peter Freyd for bringing this book to my attention through reviews that he forwards me by e-mail.

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.
