Enigma by Robert Harris. Hardback. First-Edition. Hutchinson. London,1995.
Description: " 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 for help 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-boa 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 ther may be 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. "
