Thriller | Historical
Lavish wealth and appalling poverty live side by side in
Victorian Londonâ€”and Edward Pierce easily navigates both
worlds. Rich, handsome, and ingenious, he charms the city's
most prominent citizens even as he plots the crime of his
centuryâ€”the daring theft of a fortune in gold.
But even Pierce could not predict the consequences of an
extraordinary robbery that targets the pride of England's
industrial era: the mighty steam locomotive. Based on
remarkable fact, and alive with the gripping suspense,
surprise, and authenticity that are his trademark, Michael
Crichton's classic adventure is a breathtaking thrill-ride
that races along tracks of steel at breakneck speed.
