Description:
In this masterpiece of narrative history, acclaimed author Howard Blum evokes the original "crime of the century" and an aftermath even more dramatic than the crime itself-a seminal episode in America's history that would spark national debate and draw into its orbit master sleuth William J. Burns, crusading lawyer Clarence Darrow, and industry-shaping filmmaker D. W. Griffith.
"Hugely engaging . . . has tremendous verve . . . "American Lightning "throws valuable new light on an episode that seems, for us today, particularly pertinent. Terrorism happened here." "-Los Angeles Times
""A fast-moving, skillfully constructed account . . . Blum's style is cinematic." "-Chicago Sun-Times
""Compelling . . . a tense detective story." "-Seattle Times
""A thumping-good drumroll of narrative history . . . the cross-country manhunt reads like a great mystery novel . . . Blum blows the dust off a page of America's own incendiary past and brings it to pulsating life." "-Dallas Morning News
