About the Author

Lawrence Goldstone began life on Wall Street and has now written over a dozen books. His latest is Drive!: Henry Ford, George Selden, and the Race to Invent the Auto Age. The first book in this series of innovation histories was Birdmen: The Wright Brothers, Glenn Curtiss, and the Battle to Control the Skies. He and his wife, author Nancy Goldstone, live in East Hampton, New York.

Reviews

Goldstone presents a chilling account of the deadly respiratory diseases (and even deadlier medical treatments) that are claiming the lives of Brooklyn children during the hard winter of 1899...not even New York's governor, Theodore Roosevelt, has the clout to rein in 'the vast web of corruption in our pharmaceutical industry' that has cost so many lives and introduced the world to some killer drugs.
Goldstone weaves a savvy tale of intrigue and stunning twists that incorporates real-life historical figures and events into the action while richly recreating the closing days of the nineteenth century.
Set in New York City in 1899, this exceptional thriller from Goldstone exposes the underside of American medicine at that time. Goldstone again blends fact and fiction seamlessly.
Known for his mysteries, Goldstone provides extensive medical knowledge in his writing. Fascinating. If you like to be immersed in a good mystery, you will enjoy this novel.
A clever and entertaining tale. Set in the surgical theaters and medical research halls of late-19th century Philadelphia and Baltimore.
You'll be gripped by this haunting and atmospheric thriller.
Packed with historical asides and real-life figures.

Compelling. A top-notch historical page-turner.
