Erik Larson: A Fatal Voyage
Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, returns with the enthralling story of the sinking of the British ocean-liner RMS Lusitania in Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania. The publication coincides with the 100th anniversary of the fatal event that resulted in the deaths of more than one thousand passengers and crew. Larson renders a thrilling account of the Lusitania and a German U-boat making their way toward Liverpool, and the array of forces—both grand and achingly small—that converged to produce one of the greatest disasters in history. Larson is the author of the National Book Award finalist The Devil in the White City and the New York Times bestsellers In the Garden of Beasts and Isaac’s Storm.
