This book reported a sensational news story that quickly spread around the world. A doctor wanted for murder in London was fleeing justice on an ocean liner. Another ship, bearing the Scotland Yard Inspector in charge gave chase. The new technology of the day, made it possible for ship captains to communicate with each other. Newspapers far and wide breathlessly reported the case as it developed. Thunderstruck, by Eric Larson, tells the story as the events leading to these moments.
