From the dust jacket: "There is no recorded instance of a German attempt to sabotage Los Alamos. But the German high command knew the Americans were building the atomic bomb... The question facing Nazi intelligence - who was building the bomb, where was it being built, could it be stopped - had to be answered if Germany was to have any hope of winning the war. Only one man could do the job. And the assignment to go to New York and halt the development of America's superweapon fell upon intelligence expert Stephen Roebling. Thus begins an epic espionage thriller, filled with passion, action and true-life background.... Author Mark Elder was a technical writer/editor for the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory."
