Dark Hearts of Chicago
By WILLIAM HORWOOD & HELEN RAPPAPORT
A collaboration with the novelist William Horwood, this
historical thriller is set in Chicago during the World Fair of 1893
The razzmatazz of the [World’s] Fair is colourful, the feminist heroine attractive...the description of the nineteenth-century Chicago is atmospheric... an excellent if unexpected thriller.
The short chapters and tight plot invoke a cold dread in the reader from the very beginning.
With a strong plot and a vividly-created picture of the era, there’s more than a whiff of Gang’s of
New York...and you know how good that was.
Combining the pace and excitement of a Dan Brown book, with exhaustive research that takes you deep into the bold, corrupt world of Chicago, this is a big doorstep of a treat.
