Description
The Edgar Award–winning author of The Devil in the White City, Thunderstruck, and In the Garden of Beasts, Erik Larson here chronicles one of the most striking maritime disasters of the last century, the sinking of the luxury liner Lusitania by the German submarine U-20, and the deaths of 1200 men, women, and children. It is a story that many of us think we know but don't—as Larson himself admits he didn't—and he tells it thrillingly, switching perspectives between hunter and hunted while introducing a varied and vividly defined cast of characters and painting a larger portrait of America at the height of the Progressive Era.

"Factual and personal to a high degree, the narrative reads like a grade-A thriller."—Booklist (starred review)
