"Brilliantly concocted and more than just a little eerie. The fictional and actual events surrounding the 1920 bombing are as relevant today as they were nearly a century ago.”—USA Today
At the stroke of noon on September 16, 1920, as the bells of Trinity Church in lower Manhattan sounded a final, sonorous note, a bomb exploded in front of the Morgan Bank, killing and maiming hundreds of people. Thrown into the maelstrom is Harvard-trained physician Stratham Younger, Captain James Littlemore of the New York Police Department, and French radiochemist Colette Rousseau. After a series of inexplicable attacks on Rousseau, they come to believe that the bombing is only part of a larger plan. It’s a conspiracy that compels them on a twisting unexpected journey—from Paris to Prague, from the Vienna home of Sigmund Freud to the corridors of power in Washington, D.C., and ultimately to the depths of our most savage human instincts where lies the shocking truth behind that fateful day.
