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
Argentinaâ€™s most distinctive voices" (The Times Literary
A visiting Argentine graduate student finds his landlady
-- an elderly woman who helped decipher the Enigma Code
during World War II -- murdered in the parlor of her quiet
Oxford home. Meanwhile, his mentor, the renowned Oxford
logician Arthur Seldom receives an anonymous note bearing a
circle and the words "the first of a series." As the murders
and the list of suspects begin to pile up and more symbols
are revealed, the pair is drawn further into a calculated
and deadly game. It would appear that someone is using these
deaths to illustrate a mathematical theorem. And it is up to
these two unlikely detectives to solve the puzzle before the
killer strikes again.
