Publisher Comments:

Before the multi-million, runaway bestseller The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown set his razor-sharp research and storytelling skills on the most powerful intelligence organization on earth--the National Security Agency (NSA), an ultra-secret, multibillion-dollar agency many times more powerful than the CIA.

When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant and 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 ingeniously complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence.

Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Susan 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.

From the underground hallways of power to the skyscrapers of Tokyo to the towering cathedrals of Spain, a desperate race unfolds. It is a battle for survival--a crucial bid to destroy a creation of inconceivable genius...an impregnable code-writing formula that threatens to obliterate the post-cold war balance of power. Forever.

A thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code.

About the Author

Dan Brown is a graduate of, and has taught English at, Phillips Exeter Academy. Digital Fortress was inspired by the sudden presence of FBI agents on the Exeter campus because of a reported national security threat — two students had sent an e-mail back and forth saying that Bill Clinton was a liar and should be shot.

This is an amazing book. It's such an edge of the seat thriller that reading it became an all-nighter!

This is a thriller without guns, spies... The use of cryptography and encryption is pure genius. I never anticipated reading (related to studies) could be soo much fun!!

Although I was reluctant at first to read this book, once I started reading I couldnt put it down. The suspense, The thrill and the descriptive writing made this a book that would be enjoyed by ages 13+. Definatly a great gift. Dan Brown has done it again with Digital Fortress.
