12-old William Wenton is a puzzle-solving genius. He lives with his family in a quiet Norwegian town. They used to live in England, but eight years ago his family suddenly packed up, moved away and even changed their last name! Neither of his parents will offer an explanation or tell William why he has to keep his talent for solving codes and puzzles a secret. But then a special exhibit comes to the local museum: the Impossible Puzzle. The experts say it is unsolvable but William’s sure that he can crack it if he gets a chance. However, when he does, everything begins to go wrong. 

Written by Bobbie Peers and Translated by Tara F. Chace - Fiction, Science Fiction
After William begins to suffer from mysterious fits that leave him unable to control his body --- let alone crack codes --- he begins to worry that the metal inside him is acting up. There’s only one place he can go for answers: the Institute for Post-Human Research. But nothing at the Institute is the same. His room is more like a cell, and outside the window, huge searchlights sweep the skies and robot vehicles roam the grounds. William’s old teachers won’t tell him what’s going on although it’s obvious that everyone is frightened of something or someone.
