Praise for "The Technologists"
""The Technologists" combines everything I love in a thriller fascinating history, science, and a frightening mystery that demands to be solved. Matthew Pearl is one of my must-read authors. He never fails to intrigue and thrill!"--Tess Gerritsen, author of "The Silent Girl"
"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, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Buried Secrets" and "Vanished"
"Pearl's signature complex plotting, strewn with red herrings and populated with unlikely villains, leaves readers as shocked and intrigued as the Bostonians. . . . Pearl's first three novels--"The Dante Club, The Poe Shadow, "and" The Last Dickens"--were all "New York Times" bestsellers. His latest, another literary-historical thriller, seems certain to join the elite club."--"Booklist"
"Pearl again blends detective fiction with historical characters (such as pioneering feminist and MIT-trained scientist Ellen Swallow), and his cast reads like a who's who of nineteenth-century Boston. . . . Great fun."--"Publishers Weekly"show more
