Numbers Don’t Lie by Terry Bisson

Numbers Don't LieIrving lives for court cases, his fiancee, and solving oddities with his friend Wilson Wu. Can the duo navigate the intricacies of space and time to locate a mysterious junkyard? Can they reverse the Big Crunch so Irving has a chance at martial bliss?

Irving is like a long suffering Dr. Watson: he loyally interrupts his regular life to help his friend with matters he doesn’t entirely understand. Wu is zany with calm understanding of threatening anomalies and what must be done to fix them. This collection of connected stories has interesting math, wordplay, off the wall events, and dry humor. Numbers Don’t Lie offers humor, people pulled into the unexpected, and optional food for thought.
