Bletchley Park: the top-secret landmark of World War Two, where a group of young people were fighting to defeat Hitler, and win the war. March 1943, the Second World 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 finished the book regretful it had ended, and full of wonder at this extraordinary world, people and achievements it evoked * Observer * Extraordinarily good... undoubtedly the best thriller of the year, and perhaps of several years to come * Evening Standard * 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 * Enigma totally gripped me * Sunday Times * 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 *
