When the National Security Agency's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls in 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 would cripple U.S. intelligence. Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not only for her country but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves...
The bestselling novel.
About the Author
Dan Brown is the bestselling author of Digital Fortress, Deception Point, Angels and Demons, The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol. He is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he has taught English and Creative Writing. He lives in New England.
Digital Fortress is the name of a code that threatens to destroy the world's most advanced computer, located inside the supersecret National Security Agency. Susan Fletcher, a brilliant mathematician, is called in to find out how someone managed to inject a virus into the computer. At the same time, her lover is sent to Spain to retrieve a ring that contains the solution to the virus problem. The story shifts from Spain to Washington, and the suspense is maintained even in some of the technical sections. Paul Michael adroitly leads the listener on a roller coaster ride of murder, deception, and treason. Though people will check this out based on the success of Brown's The DaVinci Code, it stands on its own as a contemporary technothriller of the highest order. Recommended for all libraries.-Joseph L. Carlson, Allan Hancock Coll., Lompoc, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
