Product description


A clever and graceful novel ... George delivers an ambitious account of scientific enquiry, a spy story and an exploration of the morality of mass destruction. (Stephen Blanchard, Time Out)

A smartly executed novel, part spy story, part scientific thriller, part romance (Observer)

Compelling and masterful ... at once a spy story, an exploration of the moral complexity of the Bomb and an engaging reconstruction of an historic era (Richard Rhodes, winner of the Pulitzer Prize)

Enchantingly recounted (Guardian)

This erudite and technically accomplished novel imparts a great deal about the splitting of the atom in the 1930s and the moral maze that led to the Atomic Bomb (Publishing News)

Book Description

This is a must-read novel: a spy story, a love story, and a thrilling evocation of the birth of the atomic bomb set in the early 1930s and 1945.
