牽扯出關於國家機密的驚人事實與真相!

《千禧年三部曲》暢銷續集《蜘蛛網中的女孩》作者大衛.拉格朗茲(David Lagercrantz)最新力作!


1954年八月,在二戰期間協助盟軍打勝仗的數學天才艾倫.圖靈,在家中因氰化物中毒身亡。一般認定,他是由於無法承受對身為同性戀的「治療」與羞辱,才決定結束自己的生命。然而,年輕警探Leonard Corell卻覺得事有蹊蹺,因而展開深入調查,發現圖靈的死因並不單純!

隨著Leonard的調查越來越深入,他發現真相與戰時在布萊切利園(Bletchley Park)進行的納粹密碼破解工作,似乎有不可告人的關聯!然而,冷戰期間的一切可疑行為,都可能受到懷疑與打壓,他能找出事件背後的真相嗎?他有辦法從中全身而退嗎?

當他逐漸接近機密真相,他被下達中止調查的指令,更發現自己不僅成為國安威脅,也成為龐大勢力的目標……

From the author of the #1 best seller The Girl in the Spider’s Web—an electrifying thriller that begins with Alan Turing’s suicide and plunges into a post-war Britain of immeasurable repression, conformity and fear
 
June 8, 1954. Several English nationals have defected to the USSR, while a witch hunt for homosexuals rages across Britain. In these circumstances, no one is surprised when a mathematician by the name of Alan Turing is found dead in his home in the sleepy suburb of Wilmslow. It is widely assumed that he has committed suicide, unable to cope with the humiliation of a criminal conviction for gross indecency. But a young detective constable, Leonard Corell, who once dreamed of a career in higher mathematics, suspects greater forces are involved.

In the face of opposition from his superiors, he begins to assemble the pieces of a puzzle that lead him to one of the most closely guarded secrets of the war: the Bletchley Park operation to crack the Nazis’ Enigma encryption code. Stumbling across evidence of Turing’s genius, and sensing an escape from a narrow life, Corell begins to dig deeper. But in the paranoid, febrile atmosphere of the Cold War, loose cannons cannot be tolerated and Corell soon realizes he has much to learn about the dangers of forbidden knowledge.

He is also about to be rocked by two startling developments in his own life, one of which will find him targeted as a threat to national security.
