‘A mixture of Kafka and Agatha Christie . . . One of the joys of Decoded is its rich evocation of Chinese culture . . . What is this book really about? The clue is in the title. This book is more about Jiang 'decoding' himself than breaking enemy encryption. It is an autobiography operating under the cover of spy fiction - and an utterly fascinating read . . . Olivia Milburn's translation is superb’ Edward Wilson, The Independent Decoded tells the fictional story of mathematical genius Rong Jinzhen. Abducted and recruited to the cryptography department of China's secret services, Jinzhen rises to eventually become China's greatest and most celebrated code-breaker; until he makes a mistake. Then begins his descent into madness. Decoded takes place in the shadowy world of Chinese secret service, where Mai Jia himself worked for decades.
