Baldacci’s last novel, Simple Genius, has just come out in paperback at 11 euros.
Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are both haunted by their last case. Realising that Michelle is teetering on the brink of self-destruction, Sean arranges therapy for his reluctant partner.
Instead of focusing on her recovery, Michelle unearths disturbing secrets in the hospital. A physicist, Monk Turing, has died in mysterious circumstances near Babbage Town, a secretive establishment populated by an eccentric group of scientists and cryptographers, funded by an anonymous but powerful group.
Meanwhile, the dead man’s young daughter has secrets of her own. But what is the significance of the phrase ‘codes and blood’? Directly across the York River from Babbage Town lies the sinister CIA training ground, Camp Peary, where Monk Turing’s body was found. With the FBI and CIA breathing down Sean’s neck, can he discover the truth and save Michelle from herself?
