A reading and signing with writer Chuck Montano.

Chuck Montano reads from his new book Los Alamos, A Whistleblower’s Diary, with a meet-and-greet and book signing following the reading. 

Growing up in the shadow of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) the author, Chuck Montano was thrilled to land a job there. But he never imagined the dangerous world he was about to enter.

Los Alamos: A Whistleblower’s Diary is a shocking account of foul play, theft and abuse at our nation’s premier nuclear R&D installation, where those who dare to question pay with their careers and, potentially, their lives.

This first-of-its-kind exposé ventures past LANL's armed guards and security fences to chronicle persistent efforts to prevent hidden truths from surfacing in the wake of headline-grabbing events, as in the mysterious death of the lab's second-in-command, following a derailed fraud investigation, on the eve of congressional hearings . . . a cover-up rooted in arrogance, omissions and lies.

Seventy years after its inception, the secret science colony on “the Hill” remains largely unaccountable to anyone. The author reveals, in terrifying detail, that this is no accident.
