This was a five star book and well worth reading.
The story centers around physicist Michael Ericksson, his lover and fellow scientist Kathleen O'Connell, and a most vengeful arch-villian, Klaus Kriegmann. There were, in fact, real spies who compromised the A-bomb project -most notably Klaus Fuchs -but Kriegmann, seeks not only to sabotage the project, he is also committed to torture-murdering Ericksson as revenge for an earlier confrontation. The story comes to a dramatic climax as the lovers are trapped by Kriegmann atop the tower on which the first test of the A-bomb is minutes from occurring.
The fascinating fictional component of The Dragon Tamers is alone quite enough to make this action thriller almost impossible to put down. But for me there is second and important reason that this book should be read. The history of the creation of nuclear weapons is an essential part of our understanding of today's world and the threat now posed by rogue nations. No history book tells the story nearly as well as The Dragon Tamers does.
