This thriller has a fascinating plot which drives it along at speed. I really liked the way it is divided into lots of very short chapters – perfect for reading on the tube to work. It is clear that the author has done a great deal of detailed research into the topics the novel touches upon including notable historical figures in mathematics, Chechnya and life as a barrister, but these interesting details never get in the way of the plot moving on apace. Unlike some thrillers, the characters feel like real three dimensional people and are well developed so that you find yourself caring about whether they survive. I ended up reading the action packed denouement until well into the early hours of the morning as I had to find out what happened. A great read!
