    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.

    The crash of a Dallas-bound jet wasn't just a tragedy to TV reporter Avery Daniels; it was an act of fate that handed her a golden opportunity to further her career. Mistaken for a glamorous, selfish woman named Carole Rutledge, the badly injured Avery would find that plastic surgery had given her Carole's face, a famous senatorial candidate for a husband, and a powerful Texas dynasty for in-laws.

    Would you try another book from Frederick Forsyth and/or Eric Conger?

    May be other from Forsyth, I had read other ones better than this one, but the reading is dead boring!!!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Frederick Forsyth again?

    Yes.


    How could the performance have been better?

    With much better reading no dubt, and with less information about details with no importance for the story, to much war terminology.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sure, the story is nice, but to much longer than it needed to be in some moments.

    The execution-style murder of a Swedish housewife looks like a simple case, except that there is no obvious suspect. Wallander follows a lead on a determined stalker. But when his alibi turns out to be airtight, Wallander begins to realize that what seemed a simple crime of passion is actually far more complex and dangerous. Eventually, his search uncovers an assassination plot, and Wallander soon finds himself in a tangle with the secret police and with a ruthless foreign agent.
