About the Author:

Russell Atkinson served as an FBI Special Agent for 25 years, where he specialized in high-technology crimes in Silicon Valley. He was the first to investigate Raj Rajaratnam, the high-tech hedge fund manager who was convicted of massive insider trading in 2011. He was the case agent on the first federal prosecution in California under the Economic Espionage Act. He worked on the Polly Klaas kidnapping case and has arrested murderers and drug dealers. After retiring from the FBI he served as an attorney with a local agency. With degrees in mathematics and law he worked for many high-tech firms in the computer industry including IBM, Fairchild Semiconductor, and Netscape. He served as President of the American Cryptogram Association and has written extensively on cryptographic topics. He was Head Cryptographer for the movie The Red Machine, which was given two thumbs up by Roger Ebert. Now retired, he lives with his wife in Silicon Valley and spends time with his interests: running, geocaching, guitar, cryptography, and, of course, writing.

Review:

"Although cryptography is not a main component the story, it does havean almost Dan Brown inspired role during a critical part of the story." -The Cryptogram
"This is a fascinating book. Once I started it I could not put it downuntil I got to the end." -- Jerry Webb, retired FBI agent, author of Big Bills Only.

The Cliff Knowles Mystery series is no longer a mystery to thousands of people who've read the books. - The Los Altos Town Crier
