This was really well done and very educational. I really loved how the author incorporated all of the human elements into the story and created a sense of tension by doing so. Being from the Boston area and also being very familiar with NYC it was fun trying to picture the turn of the 19th into the 20th century culture, landscapes of both cities and the technological levels they were dealing with.

I would read Mr Most again.
