The Cryptographer's Dilemma

Series: Heroines of WWII #1
Author: Johnnie Alexander
Publisher: Barbour Fiction
Release Date: August 1, 2021
Genre: Christian Historical Romance

A Code Developer Uncovers a Japanese Spy Ring

Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.

FBI cryptographer Eloise Marshall is grieving the death of her brother, who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor, when she is assigned to investigate a seemingly innocent letter about dolls. Agent Phillip Clayton is ready to enlist and head oversees when asked to work one more FBI job. A case of coded defense coordinates related to dolls should be easy, but not so when the Japanese Consulate gets involved, hearts get entangled, and Phillip goes missing. Can Eloise risk loving and losing again?

“Just hold on.” Phillip raised both his hands. “I’m a trained interrogator. I can do these interviews by myself.”

“You’re going to talk to these women about their dolls? I think not.” Richard tapped the folders. “These are your cover identities.”

“Don’t tell me,” Phillip scoffed. “We’re posing as a married couple. Like in the Clark Gable movie.” Not even for his uncle would Phillip travel from one end of the country to the other under that scenario.

“I saw that movie,” Eloise exclaimed. “It Happened One Night, right?”

“Right.” Phillip shot an aha look at his uncle. “I suppose next you’ll hand me a clothesline and a blanket to hang between our beds.”

Eloise’s eyes widened. Good. If his comment shocked her, maybe she’d quit.

“I can’t pretend we’re married,” she stammered. “We can’t – I won’t.”

“See, Uncle? It’s not just me.”

“Calm down, both of you,” Richard admonished. “I personally selected you – the two of you – for this mission because of your particular skills. This has nothing to do with romance, real or feigned.” He slid folders toward each of them, a Cheshire cat grin on his face. “But to avoid any hint of impropriety, you are traveling as brother and sister. You’re not expected to share the same room, so it’s up to you whether you take a clothesline and blanket.”

    An intriguing and captivating historical which takes place during my favorite era. This World War 11 novel sounds profound and memorable.
