Professor Stewart’s Casebook of Mathematical Mysteries is a treasure trove for math enthusiasts and novices alike. Comprising over 150 mathematical curios and conundrums, the book is brimming with fascinating formulae, thrilling theorems, and trademark humour. What sets it apart, however, is the addition of a narrative thread that follows the exploits of the bumbling detective Hemlock Soames and his trusty sidekick, Dr John Watsup. The duo resides at 222B Baker Street, just across from a more famous neighbour whose name remains unspoken.

The Casebook’s blend of mathematical puzzles and detective novel is sure to delight and challenge readers. For example, the “Case of the Face-Down Aces” presents readers with a mathematical magic trick that requires cunning strategy to solve. Whether you’re a seasoned math expert or simply a curious-minded adventurer, Professor Stewart’s Casebook is a must-read.
