Conundrum: Chase Brandon
A fifteen-foot-tall steel sculpture stands in the courtyard of the Central Intelligence Agency, emblazoned with a message that no one can decipher. The three-inch-high letters on the sculpture form a coded message that is central to the survival of mankind - a message hidden in plain sight, displayed in a public space, with the full text available to anyone who has an internet connection. Dr. Jonathan S. Chalmers heads a CIA unit tasked with containing the greatest secret our government has ever kept - and planning for its consequences. He alone knows the full story of the threats that face America. Threats that would terrify us if we knew them. Threats that have shaped our country's past, present, and future. Threats that have become his life's work, requiring all his talents, all his energy, and even the lives of members of his family.

In the weeks to come, they must fight not only the enemy in the field - and figure out how to sabotage Germany's new "aerial torpedo" rockets - but also the enemy within.
