Journal Entry 1 by Auglaise from London, Greater London United Kingdom on Friday, August 20, 2004
From the back:
"March 1943, the war hangs in the balance, and at Bletchley Park a brilliant young codebreaker is facing a double nightmare. The Germans have unaccountably changed their U-boat Enigma code, threatening a massive Allied defeat. And as suspicion grows that there may be a spy inside Bletchley, Jericho's girlfriend, the beautiful and mysterious Claire Romilly, suddenly disappears."

I'm about halfway through this one, and it's a very enjoyable read. I wasn't expecting much from the cover and back blurb, but it's really quite interesting! I find code breaking facinating, and although it's more about the mystery of searching for the spy it's also about breaking the codes to find out where the U-boats are. I'd definately recommend it!

I picked this up today at the Cardiff Meet from Auglaise ;o)

I read the release alert *just* before I left the house (for the meet), so had made a mental note to try and grab it ;o).

Thanks Auglaise ;o)

Whoops just realised that I never returned this to Spike .....many millions of apologies to him. But he said it can travel a bit more before returning home, so it is off to 4orty7even first.

Arrived today - many thanks Vespa (and Spike).

Very enjoyable, like others of his I've read.

And it only took me 6 years to get round to reading it!

Spike - are you wanting this back or can I release it?
