Reviews

"Fascinating, mesmerizing, and richly atmospheric, The Technologists is the best yet from a true master of the historical thriller. I loved this novel."--Joseph Finder, author of Buried Secrets and Vanished

"A terrific historical mystery in the fine old Arthur Conan Doyle style . . . Who knew that a mystery formed around the founding of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology could be so good? . . . There are cliffhanger endings and fortuitous escapes. . . . There are even a couple of very sweet romances."--The Globe and Mail

"The Technologists combines everything I love in a thriller: fascinating history, science, and a frightening mystery that demands to be solved."--Tess Gerritsen, author of Last to Die

"A marvel of moving parts [with] all the twists and turns a mystery lover could ask for."--The Washington Post
