Is maths making you miserable? Are you nobbled by numbers and in a tangle about angles? Well, 'Murderous Maths' is here to change all that for good. Find out how maths could help you rescue someone in deadly peril, how not to shoot yourself with a cannon, and meet some famous mathematicians who were really hard (and even some who were murdered). And watch out for One Finger Jimmy, Chainsaw Charlie and their ghastly gangster friends, who are living proof that maths really can be murderous.
