    When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant, beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage, not by guns or bombs, but by a code so complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed the DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons -- but, the talent seen in those books was not visible in this effort. The characters were cookie-cutter stereotypes, the plot was a misery and the technical details inaccurate. Save your book credits for Mr. Brown's later works.

    Something strange is happening at Bloor's Academy. Asa, one of the endowed students who changes into a beast at dusk, has suddenly gone missing, and a new endowed student named Dagbert Endless has enrolled. When Dagbert is seen hanging around with Manfred Bloor, Charlie is sure the pair is up to something wicked. With the help of the Flames, can Charlie and his friends rescue Asa before it's too late?

    Judith says: "Very entertaining, well written."
    "Excellent story, poor narration"
    Overall

    We love the Charlie Bone series. This story is equally well written but I must agree with the other reviewers on the narration. Simon Russel Beale was a perfect narrator for this series. The narration for this book was very poor. It was difficult to discern who was speaking and all the characters came across with a high-pitched whine. Truly unfortunate that the narrator was changed in the 5th book of the series. I hope that Simon Russel Beale is brought back for the next.
