The author, an investigative journalist, reports in this book on potential illegal trafficking in nuclear arms. Interviews with a spectrum of persons involved with the security of nuclear materials and weapons provide insights into that murky international environment. The three chapters of the book address potential acquisition of fissionable materials or bombs from Russia by terrorists, the nuclear network established by Pakistan’s A.Q. Khan, and the efforts of Iraq, Iran, and North Korea (DPRK) to obtain nuclear weapons capabilities.
