Two mathematicians must join forces to stop a serial killer in this spellbinding international bestseller

A paperback sensation in Argentina, Spain, and the United Kingdom, The Oxford Murders has been hailed as "a remarkable feat" (Time Out London) and its author as "one of Argentina's most distinctive voices" (The Times Literary Supplement). It begins on a summer day in Oxford, when a young Argentine graduate student finds his landlady-an elderly woman who helped crack the Enigma Code during World War II -murdered in cold blood. Meanwhile, a renowned Oxford logician receives an anonymous note bearing a circle and the words "the first of a series." As the murders begin to pile up and more symbols are revealed, it is up to this unlikely pair to decipher the pattern before the killer strikes again.

About the Author:

Guillermo Martínez was born in Argentina in 1962. Since 1985 he has lived in Buenos Aires, where he earned a PhD in mathematical science. He is the author of several highly acclaimed novels and short story collections, including the international bestseller The Oxford Murders.

From AudioFile:

An Argentine graduate student at Oxford stumbles upon a series of murders linked to a mathematical code. He seeks to solve the puzzle with one of his professors, a renowned logician and the author of a book on the mathematics of serial killers. Despite some references to Fermat's Last Theorem, even the "math-phobic" should have no problem enjoying this cerebral whodunit. Narrator Jonathan Davis shines as Professor Arthur Seldom, characterizing him with a melodious Scots brogue. Davis's embodiment of the professor drives the narrative, which is also helped by careful differentiation of the other characters. Especially splendid is Davis's rendition of a lively Irish nurse, who also happens to be the love interest of the young South American narrator.
