From the #1 New York Time bestselling author of "The devil in the White City". In 1910, at the height of the Edwardian era, a mild-mannered American named Hawley Harvey Crippen killed his wife and buried her remains in the cellar of their London home. A Scotland Yard inspector discovered the remains and launched an international hunt for Crippen that climaxed in a trans-Atlantic chase between two ocean liners. Thanks to a new and poorly understood technology--the wireless, invented by Guglielmo Marconi, Crippen was caught and arrested.

This is my least favorite book by Larson. It failed to hold my interest despite his brilliant writing.

This interweaving of scientific invention and true crime felt a bit forced and slow, but it picked up momentum near the end as the stories connected. It's an interesting slice of history!

A story that combines murder and the invention of wireless radio. Should be compelling, but, like Erik Larson's other story on the Lusitania, way, way too long and full of minutia. A list of socks, including colour, that one woman gave another, really?

Good stories, but I got a bit bored with them. I actually knew what happened before I erad them so that might have had something to do with it. Not his best work!
