Every time we download music, take a flight across the Atlantic or talk on our cell phones, we are relying on great mathematical inventions. In The Number Mysteries, one of our generation's foremost mathematicians Marcus du Sautoy offers a playful and accessible examination of numbers and how, despite efforts of the greatest minds, the most fundamental puzzles of nature remain unsolved. Du Sautoy tells about the quest to predict the future—from the flight of asteroids to an impending storm, from bending a ball like Beckham to forecasting population growth. He brings to life the beauty behind five mathematical puzzles that have contributed to our understanding of the world around us and have helped develop the technology to cope with it. With loads of games to play and puzzles to solve, this is a math book for everyone.

When fifty-year-old millionaire Henry Vandalay is found stabbed to death on the cement floor of his shop, and the Tarot Death card is found in the ancient Keltic layout spread neatly beside his cold body, Henry's beautiful young wife, Katherine, hires numerologist, Samantha Blackwell, to find her husband's killer. Katherine invites Sam to the Vandalay mansion for the weekend. During an elegant dinner at the mansion, Sam is visited by a vision of a floating dead man who supplicates her with decomposing arms. The tension mounts when she is awakened in the middle of the night by the sound of footsteps in the hallway. She peers out of her bedroom doorway to find an apparition moving down the grand staircase. The discovery of a hidden pagan altar lures Sam even deeper into the convoluted relationships in the drafty house, and into the business dealings of Henry Vandalay. The next day, as a small circle of people gather for the reading of the will, terrible secrets are revealed. Is Sam getting too close to the killer? Will she be next? Only her steely resolve propels her to unravel the mystery hidden in the Tarot layout, and reveal the identity of the true killer.

A simple camping trip turns into a nightmare when a dying man taps repetitively on the side of the motor home next door to Samantha Blackwell and her husband. Sam is convinced that the tapping is a message, some kind of code, left by the victim. When the local minister tells her in confidence that he was supposed to meet the victim and had, in fact, been there when the man was murdered, he pleads for her help. What can Sam do? Her friend is in trouble. To observe one of the suspects, Sam disguises herself as a biker mama and enters the depraved depths of the Pigpen, the most infamous biker bar in southern New Hampshire. Disguising herself as a biker mama, she enters the depraved depths of the infamous Pigpen. Before the evening is through, she is challenged by her fear and the roomful of angry, tattooed bikers. Sam escapes from the bar at midnight, and is chased through the back roads of New Hampshire by a shadowy figure on a Harley? in a car? She can't tell which, as her speedometer hits seventy miles-an-hour. Sam has to wonder if her loyalties and curiosity are finally going to be the end of her.

By a remarkable coincidence they live at 222B Baker Street, just across the road from their more illustrious neighbour who, for reasons known only to Dr Watsup, is never mentioned by name. A typical item is 'The Case of the Face-Down Aces', a mathematical magic trick of quite devilish cunning... Ranging from one-liners to four-page investigations from the frontiers of mathematical research, the Casebook reveals Professor Stewart at his challenging and entertaining best.
