Summary
A troubled codebreaker faces an epic plot reaching back through centuries of Americas secret history Salem Wiley is a genius cryptanalyst, courted by the worlds top security agencies ever since making a breakthrough discovery in her field of quantum computing. Shes also an agoraphobe, shackled to a narrow routine by her fear of public places. When her mothers disappearance is linked to a plot to assassinate the countrys first viable female presidential candidate, Salem finds herself both target and detective in a modern-day witch hunt. Drawn into a labyrinth of messages encrypted by Emily Dickinson and centuries-old codes tucked inside the Beale Cipher, Salem begins to uncover the truth: an ancient and ruthless group is hell-bent on ruling the world, and only a select group of women stands in its way.
