Review of 'Digital Fortress'

Digital Fortress by Dan Brown

Susan Fletcher is a brilliant young cryptographer working with the NSA to protect the secrets of the US government and to crack the secrets of others. Called into work unexpectedly on a Saturday what she finds out could undermine the work of the agency forever never mind the personal threat to both herself and her fiance who is sent by the director to Spain to track down a key clue to the whole puzzle of Digital Fortress: an uncrackable code. With a whole sequence of secrets and counter-secrets Brown makes this novel a suspenseful page-turner of a novel with twists and turns the reader never knows what to expect. Though full of basic technical detail the whole essence of the work being done is not fully explored which promises to keep the average reader interested. A good read.
