A formidably intelligent yet quiet Oxford graduate, Thomas lives in a rural village with his widowed sister and her two daughters. When a stranger knocks on Thomas's door one night and informs him that the king's cryptographer has died, everything changes. Aware of Thomas' background as a mathematician and his expertise in codes and ciphers, the king has summoned him to his court in Oxford. It is only once Thomas arrives, however, that he learns that his predecessor was murdered. Brutal murder follows brutal murder. And when a vital message encrypted with a notoriously unbreakable cipher is intercepted, he must decipher it to reveal the king's betrayer and prevent the violent death that defeat will surely bring."@en ;
