Review of "Countdown to Atomgeddon"
This story describes the race between the United States and the Third Reich to develop the atom bomb. There is a complicated spy ring trying to steal information from the United States, hinder development, and ultimately delay the test at Trinity Site. They were led to believe that Jumbo was the test bomb as a cover for Gadget, the real test bomb. Many pains taking operations were enacted to delay Jumbo's arrival at Trinity Site. Protagonists, Blake and Nate discover what's going on, and help the government to identify and capture some spies. Howell writes with an underlying sense of humor throughout. 3 Stars
