"This is really a great book with so many references to mathematical ideas, that you can read and reread and find every time new details hidden in the graphics."---Adhemar Bultheel, European Mathematical Society "Prime Suspects blends together the worlds of mathematics and forensic science to give readers both an interesting mystery and an education in numbers."---Anelise Farris, Rogues Portal "Granville and Granville have performed something of a feat. They've written a graphic detective novel that is both interesting to read and yet simultaneously teaches its readers some deep mathematics . . . . It's very difficult to write a book on an advanced topic in mathematics that's accessible to math students and enthusiasts yet touches on contemporary research that is of interest to a broad swath of practicing mathematicians. Prime Suspects is such a book. And it's entertaining to boot. I recommend it in the strongest terms."---Benjamin Linowitz, MAA Reviews "A total one-off."---Matthew Reisz, Times Educational Supplement "Prime Suspects will appeal to a variety of readers in a variety of venues . . . . For the mathematician who eats, sleeps, and drinks numbers, start on page one and just enjoy the story . . . the book is fun, and interesting, and a challenge on many levels."---Judith Reveal, New York Journal of Books "What a spectacular book! I am rather blown away by it."---Jonathan Shock, MathemAfrica
