Ten Years Earlier... is a short story by Jonathan Pinnock. It is a prequel to the Mathematical Mystery series and was made available exclusively on the Farrago Books website in March 2021.


Detective Inspector Buntingford is left pining for a juicy murder case after an anonymous tip turns out to be a prank by students of Cambridge University Medical School. Wistfully, he contemplates past murder investigations involving academics: linguists, economists, historians and those unruly philosophers! Mathematicians, though, had never been a problem – there’s not much to argue about with numbers. They’re either right or wrong, aren’t they?

It seems that way until his colleague and partner Detective Constable de Silva receives a call.

Now a different kind of puzzle awaits...
