A box set of The Anarchist and The Crossing together in one book for a reduced price.
Between 1894 and 1907, anarchists assassinated the President of France, the Prime Minister of Bulgaria, the King of Italy, the Empress of Austria, the Prime Minister of Spain, and the President of the USA.
Anarchists are the terrorists of their day, and unknown to farm boy Theo, his best friend is one of them.
Duped into aiding in an attack, Theo flees the country before the police can link him to the crime. Leaving his fiancée behind, he heads to America to work in his uncle's vaudeville theater until things blow over back home.
But there are worse things than prison. When his uncle Bert gives him a job playing the piano for troubled singer Adeline, Theo discovers she has a secret even more disturbing than his own─a secret that puts everyone in the theater in jeopardy when Bert turns his nephew into a matinee idol in the emerging silent movie industry.
