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.

Interesting subject and story but found the book tedious as far as listening. Do enjoy Simon Vance as a narrator.
