A taut, gripping drama. Constructed with the precision of a veteran master-storyteller, I was taken on a journey I'll never forget. Is this really Pearson's first novel? I look forward to many more. Thank you, Amazon - I'd never have found this in a bookstore.

Proof of Death, an e-book by Chris Pearson, a British writer living in France and the UK, is a mystery/thriller that presents an unusual plot.
Cryptography, simply stated, is the basis of privacy. It is a system where information is scrambled by employing the large mass of numbers known to all. If a key were found to unscramble this mass, it would be as the Rosetta stone to hieroglyphics. It would allow revelation of the prime factors necessary for the unscrambling of the numbers and as a corollary the possessor would have unimpeded entry to every financial institution, government agency, military base and other `secure' data. The plot of this story portends that a mathematics professor in war torn Chechnya has solved the Riemann Hypothesis containing this `Key' and resulting in his becoming a target for powerful forces that will stop at nothing to obtain this coveted prize.
With respect to the book's mechanics, this reader is somewhat ambivalent. At times it would appear that some further editing could remedy some confusion with respect to individual identity, action or location and a little more character development might be helpful. However, the story line is excellent, the action non-stop and there is a somewhat `British' flavor to the approach that provides a sense of authenticity that makes the reading enjoyable. All of these are distinctly plus factors for this reader. Now however, we believe a SPOILER ALERT is required. Persons not sensitive to activity that strains the boundaries of physical prowess should simply proceed to enjoy the book as described to this point and read no further.
Individuals more attuned to physiology will discover some activity in the last few chapters will stretch the limits of credibility with respect to physical limitations.

It was a good story and I liked the characters. I liked the slight twist in the end. However the brutality throughout the earlier portion of the book was unnecessarily graphic and tiresomely repetitive, thus four stars instead of five. I would have disliked the bad guys without all of the prelude.

From the moment you pick this book up you will find it hard to put down. For those of you who think math is boring this story will put a new spin on it's history. Chris Pearson keeps the suspense going until the very end.

Some of the writing could have been improved, but it was readable. It was going ok for a cheapie. However, a piece of violence in chapter 4 was too graphic (though probably realistic) for me and I had to stop reading. Perhaps I'll continue another time, but if there's more like that, I'm out.

Engaging novel. Twists kept coming throughout the book. Ending was a bit too long. I liked the book overall. Enjoy.
