Pete was baffled. “We’ve tried everything to break this code, but it’s still encrypted. Locked up tighter than a can of Klick.”
Steffie looked up from the paper Pete had handed her. “A can of what?”
“Are you speaking Klingon again?”
“Oh.” She frowned at the paper again. “And the cryptographer who encoded this is unavailable? I might be able to … persuade them to supply us with the key.”
“The cryptographer is personally encrypted. So, unless you’re good at the Ouija board or have Dr. Frankenstein in your pocket, that’s a no.”

“Yes!” Pete reached for the papers, but Steffie pulled them out of his grasp.
She put them on her desk and carefully printed CODE on the one he had given her and KEY on the one she had printed out.
