    Khidhir Hamza, the Iraqi scientist who designed Baghdad's nuclear bomb, tells how he secretly developed the bomb with the cynical help of U.S., French, German, and British suppliers and experts and kept it hidden from U.N. inspectors after the Gulf War.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was initially fascinated with the story until I did a brief internet search of Khidhir Hamza and found out that he has been largely discredited as being a significant player in Saddam's nuclear program. Yet I continued to listen to this audiobook and enjoyed it for what it is, historical fiction.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Khidhir Hamza and Jeff Stein again?

    The book was very well written, yet I would not listen to other programs by these authors because I don't think either one of them has any credibility.


    What does Robert Whitfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator was excellent, his performance was consistent and fluid.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I watched the movie Devil's Double about Uday Hussein's double, who has also been discredited and enjoyed it. I would see this movie.
