Therefore, the Cipher code is as follows:

A = 1

B = 2

C = 3

I = 9

J = 0

K = 1

To convert the first letter of the author’s name into a number, simply look for the corresponding number in the cipher code.

For example, the first letter of Quincey is Q, and the corresponding number is 7.

Likewise, the combination to the lock is the first initial of each author’s surname, which is in the order of the books;

QBW = 723 

Hence, enter the code into the lock to unlock the Pump Action shotgun.
