In 1942, Lawrence Pritchard Waterhouse—mathematical genius and young Captain in the U. S. Navy—was assigned to detachment 2702. It is an outfit, so secret that only a handful of people know it exists, and some of those people have names like Churchill and Roosevelt.
The mission of Waterhouse and Detachment 2702—commanded by Marine Raider Bobby Shaftoe-is to keep the Nazis ignorant of the fact that Allied Intelligence has cracked the enemy's fabled Enigma code.
It is a game, a cryptographic chess match between Waterhouse and his German counterpart, translated into action by the gung-ho Shaftoe and his forces. Fast-forward to the present, where Waterhouse's crypto-hacker grandson, Randy, is attempting to create a data haven in Southeast Asia.
