This is an enthralling tale of smuggling the atomic bomb secret from Germany to Japan during World War II. A segment of the novel is still considered by the Japanese government as classified information. Lieutenant Colonel Takeo Nogi is the outstanding army intelligence officer who leads the Japanese party, intended to work with the Germans in developing an atom bomb. Olga Chavraski, a Russian prostitute living in Harbin, Manchuria, becomes the courier of the secret data. Finally, Muneo Hanekawa, a brilliant scientist, compiles all the scientific experiments beyond the state of continuous burning atom when it is split. The assignment is not without countless mishaps, adventurous counter-spy activities, sexual encounters, disappointments, and even murder. The first atom bomb explosion takes place in Japan four months prior to the American Fat Boy, which is dropped in Hiroshima. Was it planned or an accidental misfortune?
