Morning of a Thousand Suns, by Wayne Campbell, author of The Scales of Eden.

At its heart, this is a love story immersed in a fast-paced chase to find a fanatical group building an atomic bomb, either to ransom it off for cash or to actually detonate it over a Canadian city.

Sent to find the fanatics are two CSIS agents, Neill MacLeod, a disgraced outsider, and Chantal Devlin, a Québécoise fast-tracking to the top. The unlikely couple are able to resist the glowering menace of the hunt and its terrible emotional pressures, but not each other.

Their shared, primal fear: that Canada is out of time.

Though worlds apart in life-experience and ambition, MacLeod and Devlin each find the other deeply attractive in essentials, prevailing even over Devlin’s military-hardened common sense. Their relationship flowers in the building crisis as it takes them on a frantic pursuit through Ottawa, Montreal, Algonquin Park and to a fatal encounter in a Deep River living room.

If you want to understand the science in the new movie, Oppenheimer, read this book.
