Enigma

Rating
Rejacketed reissue. It is March 1943 and inside Britain's codebreaking centre, Bletchley Park, the cryptanalysts are facing their worst nightmare- Nazi Germany's U-boats have unexpectedly changed their Enigma cipher and the Battle of the Atlantic suddenly hangs in the balance. In a desperate attempt to save the situation, the authorities turn to Tom Jericho, a brilliant young mathematician and codebreaker, presently on sick-leave in Cambridge. What follows is a frantic race to crack the U-boat code. But, unknown to his colleagues, Jericho also has another equally baffling enigma of his own to unravel- the woman he loves has disappeared and he suspects there may a spy at Bletchley... Steeped in the atmosphere of wartime England, based around an actual event, Enigma is a thriller of genius- a compelling mystery of codes and codebreaking, love and betrayal set inside the birthplace of the secret state.

Reviews

"The brilliance of Enigma is that it gives readers the sense of being contemporary with its characters and then leads them on a dark journey of discovery to arrive at another of the Second World War's blackest horror stories, one not fully admitted until half a century later... Altogether top-class stuff. Peter Millar" * The Times * "Enigma totally gripped me" * Sunday Times * "After the resounding success of his first novel, Fatherland, the question was what would Robert Harris do for an encore? This is his resounding answer" * Mail on Sunday * "Extraordinarily good... undoubtedly the best thriller of the year, and perhaps of several years to come" * Evening Standard * "I finished the book regretful it had ended, and full of wonder at this extraordinary world, people and achievements it evoked" * Observer *
