The Secret Sun" by Fred Hiatt is an easy to read Japanese-themed thriller. It is about Japan's conspiracy to build an A-bomb. Although it's a fictional novel, in a note that ends the book, the author draws the reader's attention to "The Making of the Atomic Bomb" (1986) by Richard Rhodes, a book where he probably found the inspiration for this novel. Hiatt also acknowledges an article in "Science" entitled 'Nuclear Weapons.

Hiatt admirably resists the all too common need of authors these days to tie up all the loose ends.

This heart-pounding adventure takes place as two teens, an American teenage boy and his friend, a Chinese girl from his Washington, DC-area high school, must find her father who has been kidnapped-and they only have nine days. Although the characters in the novel are fictionalized, they are based on a real Chinese family who were part of the Chinese Democracy Movement and inspired this story.

Agree whole-heartedly w reviewer who said time to issue in Kindle!! Chapter of history too little known, needs to be known more widely. Search Deborah Shapley + Japanese atomic research for background.

As one who has spent eight summers in Hiroshima and who has taught about Hiroshima an Nagasaki for over 40 years, as one who is familiar with the Japanese bomb project and the myth of their atomic bomb(the Hungnam one), and as a physicist who is somewhat knowledgeable about bomb design and nuclear landmines and suitcase bombs, I found the story delightful. It is a contemporary adventure for adults and only as exaggerated as other Japanese literature. Knowing where Hiatt is coming from I found his remarks about Japanese culture, society and behavior, often (always) on target. I recommend you grab up these used inexpensive copies for a good read.

I just re-read it and enjoyed it. It's particularly interesting accompanying music in the Trump era as Japanese and South Koreans find more reason to doubt the efficacy of the U.S. nuclear umbrella and give more thought to whether they should develop their own nuclear arsenals. Miniaturization is, of course, a Japanese specialty.
Dark_Sun
Though captivating in parts, the author's lack of knowledge concerning even the basics of physics (miniature nuclear devices hidden in computers! Aw, come on!), history, Japan and the Japanese, and his inability to shake off his all-pervasive American-centered view of the world, belie his professed attempt - in which he takes great pride - to offer an insider expert's view of Japanese society. Although Hiatt pokes a lot of fun at other so-called "expert opinions", ultimately he himself turns out to be not much better. As an aside: the contrived and therefore unwittingly hilarious sequence of events leading to the two protagonists finally having sex must be seen to be believed.
Senior journalists need not necessarily turn out be good novel authors, as this book conclusively demonstrates.

I just re-read this book. Hiatt has written a decent enough thriller with likable characters; And, now that I've a Japanese wife - he's helped me deal with 'worse' problems than one reviewer revealing the book's macguffin. Reminds me of Peter Tasker's Mori books.

Hope one day to read the Russian sequel to this.
