Orlagh Cassidy eloquently narrates this fictional account of a WWII-era physicist who is working on the atom bomb in Los Alamos while yearning for the love of her life in Berlin. Anticipating persecution as a Jew, Hannah escapes Germany and continues her work on the atom with the Americans in New Mexico. Portraying Hannah with a gentle Austrian accent, Cassidy captures the character's feminine beauty and scientific acuity. Major Jack Delaney is dispatched to Los Alamos to investigate suspicions that Hannah's loyalties may still lie with the Third Reich scientists she abandoned. Cassidy does well with the extended dialogues between Hannah and Jack. The more he is determined to ferret out Hannah's secrets, the more her revelations become both shrewd and mesmerizing.
