    A book that had been on my shelf for over 10 years I finally got around to it I was entertained, but it is a bit dated at this point It takes place around 1995 or so and centers on an improbable Clancyesqe plot within the British version of the NSA I d read Storming the Intrepid and Thunder of Erebus the author s other works 20 years ago and remembered liking the writing style I m afraid this book isn t nearly as exciting, or my tastes have changed in the intervening time.

    Our hero is a world class cryptanalyst who works in the code breakingsection of the British Intelligence Service He breaks an unbreakable code and the bad guys decide that he knows too much and must beeliminated Good story.

    Slow start but worth plowing through.Made code breaking exciting and showed what the less glamourous side of the world of spying.Interesting view from the British side and some of their differences
