Enigma

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.

Press 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

Blends carefully researched fact with brilliantly realised fiction... a compulsive page turner until its surprising secrets are finally decrypted

Daily Mail

A first class plot... the characters steadily evolve and deepen. Out of wartime Cambridge and Bletchley lurches the computer age
