Like his previous book, Devil in the White City, this book focused on two simultaneous aspects of history. The development of the Marconi wireless and the life of a murderer. While this book was interesting in its facts, I do have to say that it sometimes tried too hard to recreate the story of Devil in another time and place. It was interesting and I did learn a lot from this book, but some parts were too technical and others just didn't hold my interest. Good, but Devil was better.
