Thunderstruck - Erik Larson A simultaneous story of a murder and the historical development of the wireless telegraph. I expected a more significant interrelationship between the two plots since they were joined in the same book. At times, it felt fairly strained to make any connections. Independently, the stories were interesting (though I was expecting a more dramatic turn of events). Though I admire the attempt to connect these two seemingly unconnected non-fiction events, it ultimately felt like a failed attempt.
