Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lavish wealth and appalling poverty live side by side in Victorian London—and Edward Pierce easily navigates both worlds. Rich, handsome, and ingenious, he charms the city's most prominent citizens even as he plots the crime of his century—the daring theft of a fortune in gold.

But even Pierce could not predict the consequences of an extraordinary robbery that targets the pride of England's industrial era: the mighty steam locomotive. Based on remarkable fact, and alive with the gripping suspense, surprise, and authenticity that are his trademark, Michael Crichton's classic adventure is a breathtaking thrill-ride that races along tracks of steel at breakneck speed.

About the Author

If Danny Ocean lived in the early 19th century... he would have done what Edward Pierce did. The "First Great Train Robbery," in a time when such things as safes and trains were considered nearly impregnable, receives a thorough exposition under the pen of Michael Crichton. I enjoyed the detail and the realism, the dedication to the context, and the excitement of a real, elaborate heist.
