Summary
One of the most brilliant scientists of his generation, Bruno Pontecorvo was privy to many secrets. Yet when he disappeared MI5 insisted he was not a threat. Now, based on unprecedented access to archives, letters, and surviving family members and scientists, Professor Frank Close pieces together an answer to whether Pontecorvo's defection to the USSR did indeed bring an end to a life of spycraft - and exposes the truth of a man irrevocably marked by the advent of the atomic age and the Cold War
