Description: The trial and execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for atomic espionage tore America apart -- and remains to this day a subject of emotional debate and acrimony. The man whose testimony almost alone convicted them was Ethel Rosenberg's brother, David Greenglass, who was also the young man who spied for them at Los Alamos. Ethel and Julius were executed. David was given ten years and then put into the witness protection program, after which he disappeared somewhere in America.

But author Sam Roberts found him, and then managed to convince Greenglass to talk for fifty hours. So here we have at last the mesmerizing inside story of the Rosenbergs. What were their lives like growing up on the Lower East Side, how was David enlisted to spy at the site of our greatest national secret, and how did the whole thing unravel and lead to the arrest of David, Ethel, and Julius?

In addition to answering such questions, this book reveals how Greenglass perjured himself in testifying about his sister, Ethel, and her husband -- testimony that virtually strapped them into the electric chair.

It is the story of a family. It is a story of espionage. It is the story of a trial. This great narrative is far more captivating than anything else written on the subject. Convincingly and authoritatively, it tells a tale driven by secrets, suspense, and intense human interest.
