I wrote this review last week, but did not see it in the reviews, so I will write it again.
Thunderstruck, like Devil in the White City, intertwines two stories. One story is about Guglielmo Marconi and how he struggled to develop wireless telecommunication at the turn of the 20th century. The second story is about Dr. Crippen, a man who murdered his wife in England. Their lives touch, when, during Crippen’s escape to Canada, his every move is watched by the world because of Marconi’s new technology.
The book is heavily detailed, especially about Marconi and his trials, but I do recommend it.
