Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up–The enigma was a portable cipher machine that the Nazis used to decrypt coded messages. A professor finds one at an estate sale and assigns his graduate students the task of decoding it. The next day, the man and all but one of his students are dead, murdered by State Department agents who are now ruthlessly pursuing Casey, the remaining student. Can she decode the message and save her life? Fast-paced and filled with violence, this is a quick, action-packed read. The illustrations are drawn in a realistic style that lacks enough detail to make them expressive or striking, but the book should appeal to fans of spy thrillers.–Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
