The Oxford Murders - Guillermo Martínez, Sonia Soto This novel has more red herrings than a communist fish market.

But that's OK because I like novels that throws you off and keeps you guessing. Even if some of the herrings are obvious, there are always a few that swim by when you are not expecting them. The Oxford Murders is a nifty mystery about two Oxford academics that are trying to solve a murder and if it seems a little...well...academic. it's because it is. Martinez mixes a nice share of mathematics, Wittgensteinian philosophy and even some mythology to make a very different tale of murder. It may be the most fun book I ever read that involved mathematics professors, and we all know mathematics professors can be real party animals....or not.
