"An engrossing and ambitious novel that vividly portrays a critical time in American history." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Enthralling. A Fierce Radiance shines with fascinating detail.... Belfer's powerful portrayal of how people are changed in pursuit of a miracle makes this book an especially compelling read." -- Nancy Horan, author of Loving Frank

Set during the uncertain early days of World War II, this suspenseful story from the New York Times bestselling author of City of Light follows the work of photojournalist Claire Shipley as she captures America's race to develop life-saving antibiotics--an assignment that will involve blackmail, espionage, and murder.

display_description In the anxious days after Pearl Harbor, talented "Life" magazine reporter Clara Shipley finds herself on top of one of the nation's most important stories - the race to discover penicillin at the Rockefeller Institute. When a researcher at the institute dies under suspicious circumstances, the stakes become starkly clear: a murder has been committed to obtain these lucrative new drugs. With lives and a new love hanging in the balance, Claire will put herself at the center of danger to find a killer - no matter what price she may have to pay.
