From the Publisher

The Splendid and the Vile The Devil in the White City In the Garden of Beasts Dead Wake Isaacs’s Storm Lethal Passage
The Splendid and the Vile The Devil in the White City In the Garden of Beasts Dead Wake Isaacs’s Storm Lethal Passage
An intimate chronicle of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz—an inspiring portrait of courage and leadership in a time of unprecedented crisis. The true tale of the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago and the cunning serial killer who used the magic and majesty of the fair to lure his victims to their death. A dazzling account and cautionary tale set during the years before WWII. A true story weaving two men’s lives together with love, murder, invention, and the end of the world’s “great hush.” The true story of the deadliest hurricane in history. This devastating book illuminates America's gun culture – and tells the story of how a disturbed teenager was able to buy a weapon advertised as "the gun that made the eighties roar."

Editorial Reviews

Review

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“Larson is a marvelous writer...superb at creating characters with a few short strokes.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Larson's gift for rendering an historical era with vibrant tactility and filling it with surprising personalities makes
Thunderstruck an irresistible tale...He beautifully captures the awe that greeted early wireless transmissions on shipboard...he restores life to this fascinating, long-lost world.” Washington Post

“A ripping yarn of murder and invention.”
—Los Angeles Times

“Of all the non-fiction writers working today, Erik Larson seems to have the most delicious fun...for his newest, destined-to-delight book,
Thunderstruck, Larson has turned his sights on Edwardian London, a place alive with new science and seances, anonymous crowds and some stunningly peculiar personalities.”
—Chicago Tribune

“[Larson] interweaves gripping storylines about a cryptic murderer and the race for technology in the early 20th century. An edge-of-the-seat read.”
People

“Captivating...with
Thunderstruck, Larson has selected another enthralling tale—two of them, actually...[he] peppers the narrative with an engaging array of secondary figures and fills the margins with rich tangential period details...Larson has once again crafted a popular history narrative that is stylistically closer to a smartly plotted novel.” Miami Herald

“As he did with
The Devil in the White City, Larson has created an intense, intelligent page turner that shows how the march of progress and innovation affect both the world at large and the lives of everyday people.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Captivating...with Thunderstruck, Larson again demonstrates that he's one of the best nonfiction writers around and proves that real-life murders can be as compelling to read about as fictional ones.” —Dallas/Forth Worth Star-Telegram

“[Larson] captures the human capacity for wonder at the turn of the century...[he] has perfected a narrative form of his own invention.”
—Cleveland Plain Dealer

“An enthralling narrative and vivid descriptions...Larson has done a marvelous job of bringing the distinct stories together in his own unique way. Simply fantastic!”
Library Journal

“Splendid, beautifully written...
Thunderstruck triumphantly resurrects the spirit of another age, when one man's public genius linked the world, while another's private turmoil made him a symbol of the end of "the great hush" and the first victim of a new era when instant communication, now inescapable, conquered the world.”
Publishers Weekly
