Don't let the math scare you. Yes, the sleuth is a Mathematics professor, who leads a team of some of the best young minds in mathematics. And, yes, there are math jokes and even one young character signing the names of famous mathematicians. In fact the insight into that world and mindset adds greatly to The Freshman Murders. From palindromes to linguistics to astrology to higher mathematics, the clues challenge the reader. They're considerably less challenging for genius professor, consultant and sleuth Josh Rosemont, although he and his cohorts still must try to jump from what the clues mean to what they might predict, as they struggle to bring down a corporate villain in a court case and to stop a murderer of freshman girls on their college campus. The threads of these two cases and their investigations intertwine and loop and tangle. Like a set of Russian nesting dolls with layer after layer after layer of puzzles - what more could a mystery lover want? Unless it's an intriguing case of characters, led by Josh, his ex-cop-now-anthropology-professor wife Carmela and the international protégés they collect.Was this review helpful?
