Signature Reviewed by James L SwansonIn this splendid, beautifully written followup to his blockbuster thriller, Devil in the White City, Erik Larson again unites the dual stories of two disparate men, one a genius and the other a killer The genius is Guglielmo Marconi, inventor of wireless communication The murderer is the notorious Englishman Dr H.H Crippen Scientists had dreamed for centuries of capturing the power of lightning and sending electrical currents through the ether Yes, the great cable strung across the floor of the Atlantic Ocean could send messages thousands of miles, but the holy grail was a device that could send wireless messages anywhere in the world Late in the 19th century, Europe s most brilliant theoretical scientists raced to unlock the secret of wireless communication.Guglielmo Marconi, impatient, brash, relentless and in his early 20s, achieved the astonishing breakthrough in September 1895 His English detractors were incredulous He was a foreigner and, even worse, an Italian Marconi himself admitted that he was not a great scientist or theorist Instead, he exemplified the Edisonian model of tedious, endless trial and error.Despite Marconi s achievements, it took a sensational murder to bring unprecedented worldwide attention to his invention Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen, a proper, unattractive little man with bulging, bespectacled eyes, possessed an impassioned, love starved heart An alchemist and peddler of preposterous patent medicines, he killed his wife, a woman Larson portrays lavishly as a gold digging, selfish, stage struck, flirtatious, inattentive, unfaithful clotheshorse The hapless Crippen endured it all until he found the sympathetic Other Woman and true love The North London Cellar Murder so captured the popular imagination in 1910 that people wrote plays and composed sheet music about it It wasn t just what Crippen did, but how How did he obtain the poison crystals, skin her and dispose of all those bones so neatly The manhunt climaxed with a fantastic sea chase from Europe to Canada, not just by a pursuing vessel but also by invisible waves racing lightning fast above the ocean It seemed that all the world knewexcept for the doctor and his lover, the prey of dozens of frenetic Marconi wireless transmissions In addition to writing stylish portraits of all of his main characters, Larson populates his narrative with an irresistible supporting cast He remains a master of the fact filled vignette and humorous aside that propel the story forward 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 14 city tour Oct James L Swanson s most recent book, Manhunt The 12 Day Chase for Lincoln s Killer, was published by Morrow in February Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Adult High SchoolLarson s page turner juxtaposes scientific intrigue with a notorious murder in London at the turn of the 20th century It alternates the story of Marconi s quest for the first wireless transatlantic communication amid scientific jealousies and controversies with the tale of a mild mannered murderer caught as a result of the invention The eccentric figures include the secretive Marconi and one of his rivals, physicist Oliver Lodge, who believed that he was first to make the discovery, but also insisted that the electromagnetic waves he studied were evidence of the paranormal The parallel tale recounts the story of Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen, accused of murdering his volatile, shrewish wife As he and his unsuspecting lover attempted to escape in disguise to Quebec on a luxury ocean liner, a Scotland Yard detective chased them on a faster boat Unbeknownst to the couple, the world followed the pursuit through wireless transmissions to newspapers on both sides of the Atlantic A public that had been skeptical of this technology suddenly grasped its power In an era when wireless has a whole new connotation, young adults interested in the history of scientific discovery will be enthralled with this fascinating account of Marconi and his colleagues attempts to harness a new technology And those who enjoy a good mystery will find the unraveling of Dr Crippen s crime, complete with turn of the century forensics, appealing to the CSI crowd A thrilling read.Pat Bangs, Fairfax County Public Library, VA Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
