Trinity was the codename for the test explosion of the atomic bomb in New Mexico on 16 July 1945. Frank tells the story of the bomb's metaphorical father - Oxford professor, Rudolf Peierls; Peierls' intellectual son, the atomic spy Klaus Fuchs; and the ghosts of the security services in Britain, the USA and USSR.
