Netflix’s The Cipher is a feature film adaptation of Isabella Maldonado’s 2020 bestselling book of the same name. The story of Netflix’s The Cipher centers on FBI agent Nina Guerrera (Lopez), who finds herself drawn into a serial killer’s web after he posts complex codes and riddles online corresponding to recent murders in order to lure her into a cat-and-mouse chase. Here’s a more detailed description of the story from The Cipher‘s Amazon page:

FBI Special Agent Nina Guerrera escaped a serial killer’s trap at sixteen. Years later, when she’s jumped in a Virginia park, a video of the attack goes viral. Legions of new fans are not the only ones impressed with her fighting skills. The man who abducted her eleven years ago is watching. Determined to reclaim his lost prize, he commits a grisly murder designed to pull her into the investigation…but his games are just beginning. And he’s using the internet to invite the public to play along.

His coded riddles may have made him a depraved social media superstar—an enigmatic cyber-ghost dubbed “the Cipher”—but to Nina he’s a monster who preys on the vulnerable. Partnered with the FBI’s preeminent mind hunter, Dr. Jeffrey Wade, who is haunted by his own past, Nina tracks the predator across the country. Clue by clue, victim by victim, Nina races to stop a deadly killer while the world watches.
