Thunderstruck


Erik Larson

In Thunderstruck, Erik Larson tells the stories of two men in Edwardian London an on the stormy coasts of Cornwall, Cape Cod, and Nova Scotia. Thunderstruck takes place in the dynamic years when great shipping companies competed to build the biggest, fastest ocean liners. The two men, Hawley Crippen, a very unlikely murderer, and Guglielmo Marconi, the obsessive creator of a seemingly supernatural means of communication, lives intersect during one of the greatest criminal chases of all time.
