    This Bengali novel is a mix of fact and fiction, based on a set of events surrounding the passing of vital information regarding the atom bomb by a Manhattan Project scientist to the U.S.S.R.

    Summary Of The Book

    Viswasghatak means traitor. This book is based on true events with a love story adding a fictional twist. The author has written this book examining the who, how, what, and why of the event.

    After the Manhattan Project that developed the Atom Bomb, the U.S. was developing a nuclear arsenal. But the situation in the world was still tense. The real war was over, but the cold war between the Communist bloc led by U.S.S.R. and the free-market block led by the U.S. was slowly simmering.

    In this scenario, a scientist associated with the Manhattan Project, was passing on information to the U.S.S.R. Who was he, and what were his motivations? How did he manage to successfully evade the ever watchful U.S. Intelligence?

    Was the scientist just motivated by a personal agenda? Was he attracted by communist ideology? Or, was it a more broader perspective that he had in mind, when he passed on such sensitive information to the other side.

    In the scenario of the developing cold war, each side was amassing weapons. If one side gained the upper hand, it could result in a deadly confrontation. If both sides were equally matched, they would each try to avoid a real war, as both sides could suffer terrible consequences.

    Was this what motivated the traitor? Was he seeking a balance of power between the two major factions in the world so that neither side would want a war that could result in mass destruction?

    It contains scientific information and formulas, but it is not a science-oriented book or even science fiction. It has a love story, and even as the investigators try to unmask the traitor, he is constantly trying to reveal himself.

    This is an interesting exploration of the reasons for one of the biggest acts of treason in modern history.

    The book is about some unknown incidents on the background of world war II. It is about how a scientist, the traitor, by betraying United States of America laterally saved the whole world by providing nuclear formula to Russia. Thing to be noted, he did it not for money as he did not take a single penny for doing this but did it for the sake of human civilization! Writer has narrated the whole story in such a simple and interesting manner that everyone, even if he or she is not a history love...

    Amazing piece of Bangla Popular Science

    Awesome novel by Mr. Narayan Sanyal. He has put in a lot of effort in gathering facts and presenting them in a novel, that keeps the reader hooked on to the book. I definitely recommend this to all the Bangali novel fans out there.

    Plus, the service of flipkart was awesome. Got the book just after one day of order and in a bubble-wrapped and cardboard package!
