The National Security Agency's secret code-breaking machine is stumped by Digital Fortress, a code created by a former employee that could undermine the agency's efforts to keep tabs on the Information Highway. The code sparks two chains of events--a battle with a traitor within NSA headquarters that envelops Susan Fletcher, its head cryptographer, and a race for the ring containing the key code, which draws in David Becker, Susan's fiancé. Moved along by both the abridgment and Bruce Sabath's breathless reading, this techno-thriller races at a lightning pace. Sabath's offbeat character voices, such as that of an NSA staffer nicknamed Jabba the Hut, are fun. The many twists will keep people guessing to the end. J.A.S.
