"With her life under threat from a right wing extremist militia group, the last thing Nancy Kronziac needs is to be drawn into a case that involves the disappearance of a sixteen-year-old girl. She does find the girl - wrapped in a bin liner and buried at the bottom of a sewage tank. Now a disappearance has become a murder investigation. Kronziac's search for the killer reveals a series of mysterious cryptograms and riddles received by various police departments throughout the western states. Enlisting the help of James Ellstrom, a Harvard professor of mathematics, they begin to crack the codes, only to reveal a pattern of mutilated victims." "To find the killer and stop the slaughter, Kronziac and Ellstrom must link the past and the present with the works of Keats and Beethoven. They must break the codes from the Caesar Shift to ASCII and follow a mathematical sequence that occurs everywhere in nature and governs the beauty in art and music, even the celestial movements in the heavens and the California State lottery."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

I bought this book years ago after hearing a portion of it read on BBC4 during a car journey. The premise, a killer who leaves cryptic clues requiring the FBI investigating officer to team up with a Harvard professor of mathematics, was enticing and the clip I heard had focused on one of these cyphers. When I finally came to read it and recalling its origin, I was ill-prepared for the violence that was described. It must have been significantly cut for its BBC appearance. I reached the point where I actually had to skip the chapters where the victims were killed. That said, I liked the story - it kept you guessing and encouraged you to work along with the protagonists to get to the bottom of what was happening. The characters weren't clichéd and the story was well-paced. I'd recommend it to any adult with the proviso that you need a strong stomach if you want to read every word. ( )
