--"Kirkus Reviews," starred review
"Factual and personal to a high degree, the narrative reads like a grade-A thriller."
--"Booklist," starred review
"[Larson] has always shown a brilliant ability to unearth the telling details of a story and has the narrative chops to bring a historical moment vividly alive. But in his new book, Larson simply outdoes himself...What is most compelling about "Dead Wake "is that, through astonishing research, Larson gives us a strong sense of the individuals--passengers and crew--aboard the "Lusitania," heightening our sense of anxiety as we realize that some of the people we have come to know will go down with the ship. A story full of ironies and 'what-ifs, ' "Dead Wake "is a tour de force of narrative history."
--"BookPage," Top Pick
"With a narrative as smooth as the titular passenger liner, Larson delivers a riveting account of one of the most tragic events of WWI...A blunt reminder that war is, at its most basic, a matter of life and death."
"--Publishers Weekly
"Once again, Larson transforms a complex event into a thrilling human interest story. This suspenseful account will entice readers of military and maritime history along with lovers of popular history."
"--Library Journal"
