Interpol agent and descendant of the great mathmatician, Henri Poincare investigates a death by a mysterious explosion at a WTO meeting. This is the first in the series and I will look for the next one. ( )

All Cry Chaos is detective work and philosophy. It is a book about God and science. All in all, it is a very satisfying read that brings up the big questions if you want to see them and an intimate book about solving a mystery if you don’t. It is a complicated and challenging book written in a beautifully straightforward style.

Henri Poincare is the fictional great-grandson of a real mathematician, Jules Henri Poincare. It is a charming conceit and ties together many of the elements of this book. He is a father and grandfather and a loving husband. He works for Interpol and is assigned the case of an explosion in which one man, Dr. Fenster, dies. Soon there are clues pointing Henri to Dr. Fenster’s former fiancé. It’s also about a criminal brought to justice by Henri and the effects of that upon Henri’s family. And, just like a fractal starting at one point and expanding forever in the same pattern, the book ties supposedly disparate actions, emotions, and theories together. It’s rather stunning, when all’s said and done.

This book will keep you on your toes. The mystery of a man’s death becomes rocket fuel, fractals, stock market trends and profit, adoption, love, tragedy, abandonment, sacrifice, and forgiveness. ( )

This is Mr. Rosen's debut thriller featuring Interpol agent Henri Poincare. A prominent mathematician is assassinated in his hotel room & he along with the room are incinerated by a very accurate bomb. Poincare's investigation takes him from there to the U.S., to Canada. Poincare not only has to deal with this case, but is also dealing with the aftermath of a series of brutal attacks on his family which seems to be related to an earlier case involving genocide. Poincare is, thus, in a very dark personal place, forced to examine his own core beliefs. This is an engrossing, exciting book, with excellent writing which only gives me an appetite for more from this author! ( )

I'm not sure what I expected when I picked this book up, but it was actually much better than anticipated. It has quite a noir feel to it: with a troubled main character facing off against great challenges, by himself for the most part. There is a very strong mystery in here, and a great emotional component to top it off.

You'll root for Henri to solve the crime, fix his troubles, and save himself, but you won't know for sure, until the end, whether he suceeds or not. He is a very likeable and relatable main character, and his motivation to solve the mystery stems from a very human place. There is a thread of 'mathematics as the underpinning of reality' (i.e. the existence/origin of everything can be calculated) which could be too heavy if you really thought about it, but you're not forced to do so in order to follow the plot - and it does add another little dimension to the story.

All in all, it was a great, suspenseful and compelling crime-mystery novel with a noir-ish setting and a likeable but troubled main character. I am looking forward to the next book to be released in this series (even though this one had no cliff-hanger at all.). ( )

What do mathematics,terrorism, the Rapture, playing the stock market, and murder have to do with each other? That's the thing Henri Poincare -- fictional great grandson of the mathematician -- has to discover.

I listened to the audio book version of this, so I commend Grover Gardner for his reading, which properly created the characters and avoided being annoying. The story itself deals with the usual stock in trade for thriller/mysteries -- convoluted situations, characters who aren't what they seem, bad people, good people, people colored in shifting greys -- all that good stuff. This time, the bones of a mystery are layered in ruminations on mathematics, God, and the nature of reality, which was surprisingly interesting (especially since I've been doing a bit of reading elsewhere on the subject). Our main character is flawed but basically good, and the things he suffers, the things that drive him into the shadows between good and evil, worked well for me in the structure of the story. Best of all, despite all the deep philosophy (which wasn't so difficult, really, and which I actually enjoyed) and darkness, the book has a happy enough ending. This is supposed to be the first of a series, which, considering the events and outcomes, surprises me. I'll have to keep up with this author.

Intense and intricate story, good summer reading. ( )

''A novel of mind and matter, All Cry Chaos is that most rare of books: a thriller in the truest and noblest sense. Rosen creates palpable tension and gut-wrenching drama without resorting to the cheap tricks of movement for movement's sake or gratuitous violence. Henri Poincare is both archetypal and completely original, a cop for the ages. I could never have anticipated that philosophy, mathematics, war criminals, the world economy, chaos, and religion would add up to the finest thriller I would ever have the joy of reading.'' --Reed Farrel Coleman, three-time Shamus Award winner

''Only the very best of writers can weave a compelling story from a maze of complicated ideas, and with this deftly crafted novel, Len Rosen has proven himself to be one of them. Drawing not only on crime and the human condition, but on math, economics, and religion as well, All Cry Chaos is both a thinking man's mystery and a thrilling ride. I look forward to more from its talented creator.'' --Arthur Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Memoirs of a Geisha

''Len Rosen's All Cry Chaos accomplishes the hat trick of mystery writing. On the armature of a well written narrative, he positions the allure of constantly changing places and people both exotic and mundane, the deeply felt personal pain of the Interpol detective who is the main character, and a carefully exposed mystery which grows more appallingly vast and dark the closer the reader gets to it. I don't think it would be too revealing to say that it is nothing less than the Secret of Everything. Add an apocalyptic cult with a countdown clock to keep the novel's timing perfect, a sense of dry wit, and the sturdy core of a police procedural and you have one of the best mysteries I've read in a long while.'' -- T.A. Roberts, two-time Edgar Award finalist and author of Drake's Bay

''All Cry Chaos is a rare gem of a book--an international thriller for smart readers. What The Da Vinci Code did for symbology, 'Chaos' does for mathematical theory.'' --Daniel Klein, winner of ForeWord magazine's 2010 Literary Book Prize for The History of Now and bestselling author of Plato and a Platypus Walked into a Bar: Understanding Philosophy through Jokes
