CRITICAL MASS by Sara Paretsky is very good. If you are a history buff you will especially enjoy it. Private detective, Warshawski is called by her best friend to find a patient who was in trouble. When Warshawski gets involved in finding the caller, she discovers there is more than meets the eye to this case. There is the Holocausr, the nuclear arms race, and a missing grandson. I don't know my history very well but we are introduced to the scientists who worked on the bomb during World War II. If the names are accurate I couldn't tell you. But it is very interesting to hear the stories of these people behind the detectives work which also get my interest. I would recommend this book.
