Residue Class Mystery Series
Residue Class Mystery Series
About the Bundle
The Residue Class Mystery Series is dedicated to the proposition that, when solving mysteries, there's no substitute for brains backed by courage.
The detectives who solve these crimes are nerds–brilliant individuals whose social skills may not equal their skills in mathematics, computers, and science.
Libby Myers and her partners in the Residue Class are an international bunch of mathematicians famous for their crime-solving prowess. They work by analyzing the patterns underlying a crime, but often must supplement their brilliant thinking with daring action.
Freshman Murders is a "Nerder Mystery," which means that the detectives who solve these crimes are nerds–brilliant individuals whose social skills may not equal their skills in mathematics, computers, and science.
On the terrified campus of Hurlesburg U., Mathematics Professor and former NSA problem-solver Josh Rosemont, finds a young woman’s body in the woods. He is paralyzed by her resemblance to his murdered daughter. As the murders continue, he is enraged into action by an obstructive Dean. Teaming with his cop-turned-anthropologist wife, Carmela, and his four genius grad students, he sets out to prevent another murder.
Blending every skill and trick of their professions, Rosy's team hounds a twisted trail of false clues to uncloak the Dean’s sex scandal, decipher incriminating evidence in a billion-dollar swindle, and thwart the serial killer–a deranged student who believes raping and killing a potential suicide is not really murder.
But did they catch the real killer?
Where There's a Will There's a Murder
What looks like an accident, sounds like an accident, and moves like an accident—is probably a murder. With a $-billion inheritance at stake, it's probably lots more than one. Enter the Residue Class, that diverse team of amateur outcast sleuths—an international team of geniuses whose social skills do not equal their skills in mathematics, computers, science, and catching murderers
As one reviewer said of an earlier Residue Class mystery, "An intriguing read, peppered with mathematical puzzles and glimpses into the personalities of characters not normally associated with intrigue and espionage. If you like stories where smart people use their brains, rather than sheer brawn, to get out of difficult situations, you'll enjoy this book."
The Death Lottery
Libby Myers and the Residue Class are an international bunch of mathematicians famous for their crime-solving prowess. They work by analyzing the patterns underlying a crime, but now they are faced with a killer who brags that there is no pattern to his/her murders.
The brazen murder of the Chinese UN Ambassador brings the case to a boil. Some mathematical aspects of the case cause the US President to call upon the team to tackle the case, in competition with New York's Finest.
The Random Killer not only baffles their brains, but also mocks the entire Residue Class, including even their German Shepherd dog, Heathcliff. As the tally of random murders mounts, the reputation of the Residue Class plummets.
When none of their methods produce results, they begin to doubt themselves. Can true randomness really exist? Can it even foil the brightest mathematicians in the world?
