We have to distrust each other. It is our only defense against betrayal. Deep in a rugged section of Alaska, something s making people ill. It s cancer and it s striking dozens of laborers and soldiers who worked there on a nuclear cleanup site. But when anti-nuclear activist Carrie Graham turns up evidence of the improper disposal of radioactive waste, it reveals something even more sinister. And the U.S. government will stop at nothing to prevent the information s release, even if it means putting an end to Graham s activities permanently. A multi-voiced science thriller with far-reaching implications, Betrayal follows the repercussions stemming from nuclear, biological and chemical weapons tests during the early days of the Cold War and beyond. From spirited protests at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Northern California, to treacherous intrigue waged inside the ivory towers of academia, Betrayal takes you inside the struggle to expose a massive nuclear cover-up where even those on the same side don t dare trust each other. Truly an interactive novel, Betrayal is fully integrated with the Web site: www.betrayal-interactivenovel.com. The site is packed with supplemental information and primary sources to increase understanding, while empowering readers to share their thoughts on nuclear issues through an online community forum.
