Bletchley Park, 1942: As World War II rages on, Honey
Deschamps sits at her type-x machine, tediously
transcribing decrypted signals from the German Army,
doing her part to assist the British war effort. Halfway
across the world, Hitler’s armies are marching into
Leningrad, leaving a trail of destruction and pillaging
the country’s most treasured artworks, including the
famous Amber Room―the eighth wonder of the world.
As reports begin filtering into Bletchley Park about the
stolen loot, Honey receives a mysterious package, hand-
delivered from a man that she has never seen before who
claims that he works at the Park as well. The package is
postmarked from Russia, and inside is a small piece of
amber. It is just the first of several such packages, and
when she examines them together she realizes that
someone, relying on her abilities to unravel codes, is
trying to tell her something.
Honey can’t help but fear that the packages are a trap
set by the authorities to test her loyalties―surely
nothing so valuable could get through the mail during a
time of war. And yet, something about the packages
reminds her of stories that her brother used to tell her
about her absent father, and when her brother is found
brutally murdered on his way to visit Honey, she can’t
help but assume that the events are connected. But at
Bletchley Park, secrecy reigns supreme, and she has
nowhere to turn for help….
