From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of In The Garden of Beasts,Devil in the White City, Thunderstruck and Isaac's Storm comes the enthralling story of the sinking of the Lusitania, published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the disaster.

On May 1, 1915, a luxury ocean liner as richly appointed as an English country house sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and infants. The passengers were anxious. Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone, and for months, its U-boats had brought terror to the North Atlantic. But the Lusitania was one of the era's great transatlantic "Greyhounds" and her captain, William Thomas Turner, placed tremendous faith in the gentlemanly strictures of warfare that for a century had kept civilian ships safe from attack. He knew, moreover, that his ship--the fastest then in service--could outrun any threat. Full of glamor, mystery, and real-life suspense, Dead Wake brings to life a cast of evocative characters, and captures the sheer drama and emotional power of a disaster that helped place America on the road to war.
