This review is from: Thunderstruck (Hardcover)
As an ex radio officer I bought this book to read more about Marconi. I found myself becoming equally interested in the story of Dr Crippen. The two stories are woven together excellently. at no point was I bored by excessive detail. An excellent read

I appreciate your review but to me chapters about Marconi seemed utterly boring. I understand the impact his invention had on the Crippen story but then the description of the book should reflect that the murder in which Dr.Crippen was suspected wasn't the focal point. If the book description and the reviews were more accurate I don't think we would have bought this book. Besides, there was a documentary on TV where DNA tests proved that Dr.Crippen wasn't guilty of the murder after all and the book states the opposite.
