Description
Here the author of The Dante Club and The Poe Shadow takes us to Boston in the spring of 1868, and introduces a cabal of brilliant young students at the newly founded MIT. The city has been terrorized with disasters no natural phenomenon could explain: first a magnetic storm causes ships in the harbor to collide and burst into flames; then on State Street, every piece of glass in the financial district, from windows to eyeglasses, suddenly melts. Four students—Civil War veteran Marcus Mansfield, brash Bob Richards, meticulous Edwin Hoyt, and eccentric but gifted Ellen Swallow, the first woman at MIT—are recruited to discover and stop the mastermind behind these plagues before he can strike again.

"The Technologists combines everything I love in a thriller: fascinating history, science, and a frightening mystery that demands to be solved. Matthew Pearl is one of my must-read authors. He never fails to intrigue and thrill."—Tess Gerritsen

"Pearl takes an unusual subject for a thriller and seamlessly weaves historical research and his own inventions into a satisfying story."—Sunday Times (London)
