THE ADMIRALTY, OCTOBER 1914
When Sir Alfred Ewing assembles a group of codebreakers in Room 40, expectations are high they will soon decipher enemy cables. But the team make little headway and the new Director of Intelligence, Captain 'Blinker’ Hall, is desperate for a solution.
As the Royal Navy reels with the defeat at Coronel, the two men clash. Hall will need all his cunning to bypass Ewing's obsession with secrecy and find the key before the next encounter at sea.
And when Germany’s foremost spy discovers the British are about to crack their codes, the Captain must prevent the knowledge from reaching the Kaiser.
Who can he trust with the task when he is not only fighting the enemy but battling people on his own side?
