Just saw an ad for "Thunderstruck" a new book about Marconi by Erik Larsen, author of "The Devil in the White City". It also concerns the capture of Dr. Crippen.

Has anyone read this?

If this work is anything near as good as his past writings it should be worth ordering. And, Amazon is running it at 40% off--what a deal!

Denise-- That 40% off is a great deal for everyone except the author. That's pretty much the full publisher's trade discount. So, Amazon must be buying the book at 50% off cover or lower. And, at those levels of discounts the author usually gets nothing. Amazon profits, the publisher makes money, but the writer who created those profits gets zip.
