Victoria’s November Recommendation

Thunderstruck by Erik Larson

Here is a review of Thunderstruck from Booklist: “In his follow-up to the enormously popular The Devil in the White City, Larson sticks to a formula that works: pairing the story of a progressive development, in this case, wireless communication, with an exciting murder mystery set in England.  The murderer in this book is Hawley Harvey Crippen, a mild-mannered doctor and unlikely killer, who murdered his overbearing wife to be with his young lover…Larson has a knack for creating genuine suspense in his writing, and his latest is throughly enthralling.”  Victoria says, “I love the way the author writes a nonfiction book in the way a fiction book would be written.”
