Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
A vivid portrait of the Edwardian era recounts two parallel stories--the case of Dr. Hawley Crippen, who murdered his wife and fled the country with his mistress to build a new life in America, and Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of wireless communication--as the new technology is used to capture a killer. Simultaneous.
"Larson has a knack for creating genuine suspense in his writing, and his latest is thoroughly enthralling." (starred review)
Booklist, July 1, 2006Review:
"[This] curious matchup is perfect for Larson, whose THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY also combined true crime and a history lesson to bloodcurdling, best-selling effect."
