Summary
In 1832, 57 young men from Ireland boarded a ship to America, leaving behind an impoverished country in hopes of a better life. Arriving healthy, all were dead in eight weeks. Did they all die due to a cholera pandemic as was widely believed? Or, were some of them murdered? Using the latest forensic and scientific investigative techniques, as well as historical detective work in Ireland and the U.S., modern detectives and experts will unravel this extraordinary story
