In April, 2004 The Secret in Building 26 written by Colin Burke and Jim DeBrosse was published. This book was the product of years of research by Burke, and material gathered by DeBrosse when writing the Dayton Daily News series. That book remains the sole and best narrative of the cryptographic work in Dayton in WW2.
