There's something calm and routine in narrator Michael Quinlan's voice as he delivers this audiobook. Within hours, a trio of nuclear weapons opponents will be risking an encounter with deadly force. They're headed for the nuclear facility at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, the town that uranium built, as an act of protest. Zak uses their story as a framework for a history of the United States' nuclear buildup and the development of antinuclear activism. There are hints of the trio's passion in Quinlan's reading. However, with lots of background material to cover, the drama fully blooms in the courtroom where the trio is tried for sabotage. The protestors provides the human angle for a story of science, secrecy, and global relations. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
