The Cryptographer’s Dilemma by Johnnie Alexander

 


A Code Developer Uncovers a Japanese Spy Ring
 
Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
 
FBI cryptographer Eloise Marshall is grieving the death of her brother, who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor, when she is assigned to investigate a seemingly innocent letter about dolls. Agent Phillip Clayton is ready to enlist and head oversees when asked to work one more FBI job. A case of coded defense coordinates related to dolls should be easy, but not so when the Japanese Consulate gets involved, hearts get entangled, and Phillip goes missing. Can Eloise risk loving and losing again?

My Review


I enjoyed this read, and loved the author's notes at the end, this story is based on facts!

While our troops were fighting for our freedom during WWII, some of those at home were also at war. This book focus on the FBI, and we have a young woman added to the ranks to help find "Doll Woman"! Unusual at the time, but Eloise Marshall adds a lot to this story, we end up traveling from coast to coast, and meeting some interesting people who have been put in the middle of this case. There is also some danger, and then throw in a little sweet romance, and this one became a page turner!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review
