"Nonfiction" Book identification - fake atomic bomb

A friend of mine told me about a book that argued that the Hiroshima bombing could have been faked by a large quantity of conventional bombs seeded with radioactive material (this is obviously a crazy idea, for a number of reasons, by the way); he thinks it was called "The Jupiter Effect" but the only book by that name I can find is the John Gribbin book about the crazy theory that the alignment of the planets in 1982 would cause massive damage all over Earth (don't you remember when that happened?). Anyone remember a "non-fiction" book about faking the atomic bombing of Hiroshima?
