Dead Wake:The Last Crossing of the Lusitania

Erik Larson, New York Times bestselling author and master of narrative nonfiction chronicles the enthralling story of the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915. Full of glamour and suspense, Dead Wake brings to life a cast of evocative characters including pioneering female architect Theodate Pope and President Woodrow Wilson. Dead Wake captures the sheer drama and emotional power of a disaster whose intimate details and true meaning have long been obscured by history.

Books by Erik Larson include Thunderstruck, In the Garden of Beasts, and his critically-acclaimed book, The Devil in the White City which remained on the NY Times bestsellers list for a combined total of over six years.
