CRIMSON CIPHER by Susan Page Davis
Emma Shuster finds her life totally turned in a different direction when she finds her father murdered and his secret encryption project left unfinished, but desperately wanted by the enemy. The navy offers her a position trying to break intercepted ciphers from the enemy in Washington D.C., which she decides is the best thing to do. But people are after her and the encryption project so no matter where she goes, they will track her down. But Emma does have John Patterson on her side, who also works for the government, and who helps her through some very difficult situations she finds herself falling into on numerous occasions.
The characters in this story showed great bravery and a deep love of their country at a time when it was hard to know who to trust. I learned a little bit of history while reading this story and found myself very intrigued with this time in our country's history. Good job Susan Page Davis! (Also thought the cover was great!)
