“Excellent entertainment from first page to last.” Booklist praise for Simple Simon.
“Action-packed and fast paced… Keeps the reader flipping pages frantically.” Library Journal praise for Simple Simon.
He’s brilliant. Innocent. Helpless. And he’s marked for death.
It took years to develop. Cost billions to perfect. A cryptographic system so advanced it safeguards the United States’ most vital secrets. It is secure. Impenetrable.
Until sixteen year old autistic savant Simon Lynch happens upon a forgotten snippet of code, his damaged brilliance breaking the cipher with ease and unwittingly marking him for death. Soon, elements of a pathological government security apparatus are hunting him, as is a beautiful, sadistic Japanese assassin working for enemies who will stop at nothing to learn the secret locked in Simon’s mind.
Only FBI Agent Art Jefferson stands between the innocent young man and these corrupt forces, putting his career, his freedom, and his life on the line to save Simon.
Simple Simon was made into the film ‘Mercury Rising’ starring Bruce Willis.
