Description

Something doesn't add up about Archie and Pye ...



After a disastrous day at work, disillusioned junior PR executive Tom Winscombe finds himself sharing a train carriage and a dodgy Merlot with George Burgess, biographer of the Vavasor twins, mathematicians Archimedes and Pythagoras, who both died in curious circumstances a decade ago.



Burgess himself will die tonight in an equally odd manner, leaving Tom with a locked case and a lot of unanswered questions.



Join Tom and a cast of disreputable and downright dangerous characters in this witty thriller set in a murky world of murder, mystery and complex equations, involving internet conspiracy theorists, hedge fund managers, the Belarusian mafia and a cat called .

'Jonathan Pinnock writes compelling tales with a deliciously wicked glint in his eye.' Ian Skillicorn, National Short Story Week



'Jonathan Pinnock is Roald Dahl's natural successor.' Vanessa Gebbie



"Funny, clever, and sometimes brilliantly daft. A comedy that I am sure would have made Pythagoras, Archimedes and Douglas Adams all laugh out loud." Scott Pack on The Truth About Archie and Pye
