About the New Series

Death with a gilded edge...

Between the Civil War and World War I, bold entrepreneurs, such as Cornelius Vanderbilt and his fictional counterparts in this series, led America to become an industrialized modern nation. Ruthless in their methods, they accumulated enormous wealth and spent it on self-glorification and showy philanthropy. The Gilded Age Series unveils the dark side of ostentatious, often philanthropic wealth and bold, often reckless enterprise.
