Implosion At Los Alamos is a frightening exposé that reveals failed security, crime, mismanagement, cover-ups, and corruption at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Ground Zero for America's strongest defense against rogue nations and terroristic entities -- at least it should be.

Former Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Glenn Walp was hired by "the lab" to investigate crime and lapsed security that plagued the lab post-9/11. Walp uncovered the theft/loss of more than three million dollars in taxpayer property, including nearly four hundred computers that potentially housed nuclear secrets. Certain lab leaders, concerned that public exposure of these and other administrative and criminal debacles could jeopardize the lab's lucrative government contract, opposed his efforts at every turn. Notwithstanding, Walp and his two partners remained dauntless, exposing to the world the real and present danger to America's nuclear secrets.
