This book is an autobiographical account of the controversy surrounding the U.S. government’s 1999 indictment of Wen Ho Lee. Written by Notra Trulock, the former head of intelligence for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the book recounts Trulock’s efforts to ensure that the U.S. government’s nuclear secrets remained secure from non-nuclear countries and his insistence that Lee, the Los Alamos scientist accused of spying for the People’s Republic of China, be investigated. His actions resulted in the launching of an investigation of Trulock himself. The author explores the reasons why he thinks that the government's investigation of Lee was inadequate, such as the U.S. President Bill Clinton administration’s foreign policy objectives. In addition to his own memory of the events, Trulock relies on official government reports, congressional testimony, and eye-witness accounts. The book also includes “The Cast of Main Characters,” a glossary of nuclear weapons terminology, a map of major DOE field facilities, and the DOE’s list of sensitive countries.
