I can't recall if he was mentioned in the book:

"George Koval also had a secret. During World War II, he was a top
Soviet spy, code named Delmar and trained by Stalin’s ruthless bureau
of military intelligence.

Atomic spies are old stuff. But historians say Dr. Koval, who died in
his 90s last year in Moscow and whose name is just coming to light
publicly, was probably one of the most important spies of the 20th
century.

On Nov. 2, the Kremlin startled Western scholars by announcing that
President Vladimir V. Putin had posthumously given the highest Russian
award to a Soviet agent who penetrated the Manhattan Project to build
the atom bomb."
