The Crimson Cipher
A female Navy cryptographer seeks to save lives...and uncover her father’s killers.
In 1915, German sympathizers escalated acts of sabotage in the United States to keep the nation from joining in the war. Following the mysterious murder of Emma Shuster’s father, Lt. John Patterson invites Emma to become a Navy cryptographer because of the expertise she gained in helping her father develop a cipher system. Emma finds new strength in her faith as she strives to outwit her adversary, known only as Kobold - German for goblin. Can Emma and John find love in the midst of turmoil as America plunges toward war?
Even in times of great difficulty, God is there, and He is in control.
Why the author wrote this book:
Having read about the valiant cryptographers that served our country, I wanted to write a book about them. Emma is modeled after a real woman who solved ciphers during and after World War I.
