From the Inside Flap
A taut thriller about murder, maths and the mind. Peter Blankman is afraid of everything and must confront unimaginable terror when his mother is attacked.
Seventeen-year-old Peter Blankman is a maths prodigy. He also suffers from severe panic attacks. Afraid of everything, he finds solace in the orderly and logical world of mathematics and in the love of his family: his scientist mum and his tough twin sister Bel, as well as Ingrid, his only friend. However, when his mother is found stabbed before an award ceremony and his sister is nowhere to be found, Pete is dragged into a world of espionage and violence where state and family secrets intertwine. Armed only with his extraordinary analytical skills, Peter may just discover that his biggest weakness is his greatest strength.

This book wrong footed me at every turn told by a unreliable narrator who doesn't or can't rather trust his own judgement even while I could follow or predict a lot of the twists or turns your never sure when your reading what going on simply because of the nature of protagonist added to that apart from Peter doubting himself he sometimes reacts in ways that are a complete 180 from how i would have predicted yet still feel completely authentic.
Written by someone who obviously has an intimate and genuine understanding of mental health this is a ya bond novel by way of a beautiful mind.
I don't want to spoil but I will say this this i have a handful of books across genres that shook me that made me appreciate their authors genius and touched me some are literary classics or philosophy classics most are contemporary fiction all mean something to me personal i can now add add this book to that list.
My only criticism is that for some reason it is listed as Young Adult. I don’t think any young adult would have difficulty with this at all, but I wouldn’t want to put any adult off – it’s just as relevant and accessible to older generations as it will be to younger ones.
