Arriving in the mail over a period of weeks are taunting letters that end with a simple declaration, "Think of any number ... picture it ... now see how well I know your secrets." Amazingly, those who comply find that the letter writer has predicted their random choice exactly. For Dave Gurney, just retired as the NYPD's top homicide investigator and forging a new life with his wife, Madeleine, in upstate New York, the letters are oddities that begin as a diverting puzzle but quickly ignite a massive serial murder investigation.

I was attracted to this book because I have always liked thrillers, and the mathematical component was just bonus material.
This book however, can hardly be called a thriller at all. Maybe I am spoiled by Dan Brownian thrillers, but this book develops at such a slow pace that it seemed it was more focused on the protagonist's internal development than developing suspense.
It didn't help that I could tell who the ultimate culprit was about half way through the book already.
