In March 1943 the code breakers at Bletchley Park, Britain's top secret Station X, are facing their worst nightmare: Nazi U boats have unexpectedly changed the code by which they communicate with each other and German High Command. An Allied merchant shipping convoy crossing the Atlantic with 10,000 passengers and vital supplies is in danger of attack. The authorities turn for help to Tom Jericho, a brilliant young mathematician and code breaker.
Unknown to his colleagues, Jericho has another equally baffling enigma of his own to unravel: Claire, the woman with whom he has fallen in love, has disappeared from Bletchley just when the authorities suspect there may be a spy at the Park.
To get to the bottom of both mysteries he enlists the help of Hester, Claire's best friend. Together they keep one step ahead of the secret services and investigate Claire's mysterious life, reaching a conclusion that uncovers international and personal betrayals.

Michael Apted
Michael Apted studied law and history at Cambridge University, then worked at Granada Television as a researcher. Within a few years, he became a prominent and versatile TV director, winning several British Emmys for his work. He made his feature debut with Triple Echo and scored a hit with Stardust. After The Squeeze and the intriguing Agatha, Apted had his first international hit with Coal Miner's Daughter, the biography of country singer Loretta Lynn, which won Sissy Spacek a Best Actress Oscar. Since then Apted has tackled a variety of films, but tries to alternate Hollywood movies with smaller, more personal projects and documentaries. His credits include Continental Divide, Kipperbang, Gorky Park, Bring on the Night, Critical Condition, Gorillas in the Mist, Class Action, Thunderheart, Incident at Oglala, and Nell. But Apted's most remarkable achievement remains his unique series of documentaries -7 Up, 7 Plus 7, 21, 28 Up and 35 Up-which have followed the lives of 14 Britons since the age of seven-in seven-year increments.
