The Cryptographer by Tobias Hill
In the beginning I liked the style of this book and the fact that I was finding a story that revolves around an Inland Revenue tax inspector interesting amused me too. As the book went on though I didn’t find the plot to be gripping enough and the elegance I found in the writing was really just because it’s written in the present tense. Not a bad book but not enough to make me look the author out again.
