Publisher's Summary

From the author of the number-one best seller The Girl in the Spider's Web, an electrifying thriller that begins with Alan Turing's suicide and then opens out to take in a young detective's awakening to painful secrets about his own life and the life of his country.

It's 1954. Several English nationals have defected to the USSR while a witch hunt for homosexuals rages across Britain. In these circumstances, no one is surprised when a mathematician by the name of Alan Turing is found dead in his home: It is widely assumed that he committed suicide, unable to cope with the humiliation of a criminal conviction for homosexuality. But young detective sergeant Leonard Corell, who had always dreamed of a career in higher mathematics, suspects greater forces are involved. In the face of opposition from his superiors, he begins to assemble the pieces of a puzzle that lead him to one of the most closely guarded secrets of the war: the Bletchley Park operation to crack the Nazis' Enigma code. But he is also about to be rocked by two startling developments in his own life, one of which will find him being pursued as a threat to national security....

    "Subtly engaging!"

    The characters have fantasies and insecurities that really take the story to a personal, informal level. In fact, I feel like I was slowly going insane while listening to this, I was so wrapped up in the complexities. It comes off as a calming but I think that's the narrator. Intriguing "faction"!

    "Extremely disappointed"

    I could not even finish. I cannot remember when I could not force myself to finish a book. I found the story line poor even though there were the ingredients of a great tale. I started this because of the author's work on "the girl" story that he took on.

    "Letdown"

    For me, not up to "Girl with dragon tattoo". How much fact, how much fiction? Disappointed overall.
