Alan Turing was 42 years old at the time of his death. A post – mortem examination established that the cause of death was cyanide poisoning.
On Tuesday, June 8, 1954, Detective Constable Leonard Corell, entered a bedroom, in a house in Wilmslow, a quiet town in Cheshire, south of Manchester. On the narrow bed, lying on his back, was a skinny, man. He was dead. A strong smell of bitter almond was hovering over the room. Next to the bed, on the bedside table, was laying half-eaten, half an apple. DC Corell hated apples.
During his investigation, Corell becomes fascinated by Turing’s work in artificial intelligence and the intelligence services during the WWII. As he studies Turing’s life, his own life also unfolds, sad memories and feelings, lost dreams and aspirations would return to haunt him.
