This is the debut novel for author Rosen along with his protagonist,  Henri Poincaré,  and although it was quite a fete it has not as yet been followed up with a sequel.

A bomb has gone off in the Amsterdam hotel room of the highly regarded mathematician,  James Fenster.   Poincaré and his side-kick Serge Laurent begin the detection work – the forensics,  the interviews.  There are several likely suspects,  Fenster’s ex-fiance,  a colleague,   left-wing politicos,  a banker, others.   A huge aspect to the plot is the evangelist belief that Christ will return in just a few days.   And part of the detection consists of the patterns and formulas used by the mathematician.
