book cover

Mathematical Murder Mystery

Using rules and axioms, there will always be some propositions that can't be proved either true or false. But can this apply to murder? So begins the cover description of this detective novel with a mathematical theme, set in Oxford in the summer of 1993.

And so begins Robin Wilson's review of The Oxford Murders by Guillermo Martinez which appeared in the November 2005 issue of the American Mathematical Society's Notices. Read the review here.
