Author: Erik Larson
Original language: English
A true story of love, murder, and the end of the world’s “great hush”
Set in Edwardian London and on the stormy coasts of Cornwall, Cape Cod, and Nova Scotia,
With his superb narrative skills, Erik Larson guides these parallel narratives toward a relentlessly suspenseful meeting on the waters of the North Atlantic. Along the way, he tells of a sad and tragic love affair that was described on the front pages of newspapers around the world, a chief inspector who found himself strangely sympathetic to the killer and his lover, and a driven and compelling inventor who transformed the way we communicate.
