Back to Ciphers


Dawn King

Nick Hern Books

“An ingenious spy thriller... echoes of le Carré... the work of a natural dramatist who knows how to generate suspense.” — Guardian

“Intelligent and stylish... absorbing.” — The Times

A smart and provocative thriller about spies, double agents, and the opaqueness of the human soul.

A young woman is found dead. Her sister sets out to find out what happened—and stumbles into a world of secrets and subterfuge that makes her question who Justine really was. How well can you ever know someone who lies for a living?

An Out of Joint, the Bush Theatre and Exeter Northcott Theatre co-production, Ciphers premiered at the Exeter Northcott Theatre in October 2013, directed by Blanche McIntyre, before embarking on a UK tour.
