Summary, etc.: From the #1 New York Time bestselling author of "The devil in the White City". In 1910, at the height of the Edwardian era, a mild-mannered American named Hawley Harvey Crippen killed his wife and buried her remains in the cellar of their London home. A Scotland Yard inspector discovered the remains and launched an international hunt for Crippen that climaxed in a trans-Atlantic chase between two ocean liners. Thanks to a new and poorly understood technology--the wireless, invented by Guglielmo Marconi, Crippen was caught and arrested.
