Publisher's Summary

When the National Security Agency's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant, beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage...not by guns or bombs, but by a code so complex that if released would cripple U.S. intelligence. Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not only for her country but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves.

"Digital Fortress is the best and most realistic techno-thriller to reach the market in years....A chilling thrill a minute." (The Midwest Book Review)
"Exciting...will rivet cyber-minded readers." (Booklist)

Many inaccuracies

Just like Divinci code the inaccuracies were very distracting. Dan Brown couldn't even get the difference between Bits and Bytes. He talks about a 64 Bit "pass key" inscribed on the ring and then soon after refers to it as a 64 character "pass key" (should have said 8 characters to be even plausible). It really makes me believe the folks that are starting to write books about the inaccuracies of Divinci Code.

Book is good it is the naration that is horrible, the narator talks with a lisp and distracts from the book. I not stand the constant S's added to every word HATE THE NARATOR
