The Oxford Murders

THE OXFORD MURDERS

An old lady is murdered in Oxford. Her body is discovered by two men who meet for the first time at that moment: Arthur Seldom, a prestigious professor of logic, and Martin, a young graduate student who has just arrived at the university hoping to study with Seldom.

It quickly becomes clear that this is the first in a series of murders, all of which are announced by the murderer with strange symbols. Professor and student join forces to try and crack the code and thus begins an elaborate puzzle, in which nothing is at it seems, and the truth is elusive.

As Martin gets closer to the facts, he feels increasingly insecure with his grasp on the world around him.
