    How to find and take out a sniper working from high up in the skyscraper canyons of New York City? That is the challenge presented to Dr. Lucas Page in this well-paced series opener. Page is a bit of an old-style, 1930s-mystery polymath: he teaches Simulation Theory and the Cosmos at Columbia University and is a retired FBI agent who was injured on the job and now has prosthetic arm and leg. He is also an awkward collection of contradictions: he's unattractively contemptuous of his students, yet has a householdful of foster children. He's lured back into the field after the sniper claims his first victim, and the FBI wants to use Page's uncanny ability to read crime scenes as a kind of geometry. There's another hook: the victim was Page's former partner at the bureau. The story excels at mounting tension as victim after victim falls to the sniper, who leaves no evidence. Worth reading for the plot alone, but Page doesn't quite make it as a Nero Wolfe–like lovable curmudgeon. Give him another chance, though; this series has potential. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
