Beschreibung:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Kazakhstan, 1993: A former Soviet Naval officer meets with a U.S. contact at the American Embassy and warns him of a potentially catastrophic situation. A large cache of highly enriched uranium from the Soviet submarine program has been abandoned and is stored in a decaying warehouse in the eastern part of the country near its borders with China and Russia. U.S. personnel are deployed to Kazakhstan to see the uranium with their own eyes and bring back samples for analysis. What they find is worse than anyone could have imagined--650 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium in buckets and barrels arranged just far enough apart to avoid criticality. It is a catastrophe in search of an opportunity. Washington, D.C., 1994: The U.S. initiates Project Sapphire. A tiger team of Air Force personnel and scientific experts is sent to Kazakhstan to secure all of the uranium--enough to make 20 Hiroshima-equivalent devices--and bring it to the U.S. Less than 600 kg of fissile material reaches the U.S. The discrepancy has never been accounted for. The preceding description is historical fact. THE SAPPHIRE LEGACY, the latest novel by Doug and Linda Raber, picks up where Project Sapphire left off. The novel traces the interweaving paths of immigrants and insurgents from Central Asia. A toxic mix of hatred, fear, and duplicity threatens to undermine the efforts of CIA agents who suspect the missing uranium has fallen into the hands of a shadowy Kazakh warlord. The Rabers' new thriller takes readers on a harrowing journey, as one man's desire to play spy clashes with another's vow to avenge his son's death. A joint CIA-FBI team uncovers evidence that a nuclear attack is imminent. But they don't know where, and they don't know when. They only know that they are running out of time.

About the Author: Doug and Linda Raber spent their careers investigating the interplay of cutting-edge science and U.S. foreign and domestic policy.

After graduating with a bachelor s degree in chemistry from Dartmouth College and a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Michigan, Doug spent 20 years on the chemistry faculty at the University of South Florida. In 1990, he moved to Washington, D.C., as Director of the Board on Chemical Sciences & Technology at the National Academy of Sciences, where he directed studies on topics ranging from chemistry R&D to forensic analysis of bombings and the use of technology to combat terrorism. He is a sought-after consultant in science policy arenas.

Linda graduated in chemistry and history from the College of William & Mary and began her professional career as a legislative aide in the Senate. After a stint as a research chemist at the National Institutes of Health, she worked for more than 20 years as a Washington, D.C.-based science and government reporter.

The Rabers are longtime residents of the Nation s capital. Their intimate familiarity with its physical and political landscape forms an integral part of their novels. THE SAPPHIRE LEGACY is their second novel. It follows the 2012 release of FACE OF THE EARTH.
