Mathematics of Eternity
My review -
Joe Ballen, driver of flying cabs, takes a customer home one night as is witness to his apparent suicide. Things immediately go wrong for Joe. His customer was a scientist and soon some of his colleagues are killed and Joe is fingered for the crimes. Someone is trying to stop their research being made public and Joe is just the convenient man to take the blame.
This is an intelligent and fast-moving science fiction book in which the action mainly takes place on earth. There’s something of the dystopian future about this story, liberally laced with action, adventure and quite a lot of fun. I can see more possibilities for this concept as the science and the political background are convincing. The characters are well fleshed too, and it would be good to see some of them again. This is a long book but it never drags and if this is your genre, you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
