This graphic novel is both a historical novel as well as an entertaining way of using mathematics to solve a crime. The plot, the possible motive of every suspect, and the elements of his or her character are based on actual historical figures. The 2nd International Congress of Mathematicians is being held in Paris in 1900. The main speaker, the renowned Professor X, is found dead in the hotel dining room. Foul play is suspected. The greatest mathematicians of all time (who are attending the Congress) are called in for questioning. Their statements to the police, however, take the form of mathematical problems. The Chief Inspector enlists the aid of a young mathematician to help solve the crime. Do numbers always tell the truth? Or don’t they?

In this dazzling debut, Evelin E. Sullivan has written a novel in the form of a literary biography that will permanently color the way we read biographies. Charles Butler, a smug and slightly comical Professor of English, sets out to write the life of novelist Gregory Horace Bodamien: his poverty stricken childhood in England, his formative years at a Southern university, his eventual literary (and sexual) successes, and the grisly crime that brings his career to a halt. Interviewing Bodamien in his prison cell, Butler learns of Gregory's English father, hounded by failure into insanity; his strong American mother, who kept the family together; his older brother Adam, a talented but heartless surgeon; Elizabeth, whom Gregory courts only to lose her to Adam; and Lizzy, the daughter, claimed by both brothers, whose untimely end precipitates the final crisis. While vividly unfolding this fascinating life, Butler indulges in occasional autobiographical digressions, brief and apt at first but gradually revealing a tormented soul whose "objective" account of Bodamien's life must therefore be reconsidered by the reader. Yet another account of that life is offered by the manuscript Gregory leaves behind, "The Case of the Dead Magician". Begun as a parody of the detective novel, the tantalizing fragment shows stylistic incongruities that track the author's attempt to tell his own version of his troubled end. In addition to exploring in his story his brother's murder and reinventing the past, the novelist also makes outrageous use of his biographer, with hilarious and disturbing consequences.
