"Tell him I'll see him in hell, where we both are going." This was Henry Clay Frick's famous reply to a letter from the dying Andrew Carnegie. After selling his steel interests, Carnegie devoted himself to philanthropy and world peace, but wished to make peace on a personal level. Once friends, he and Frick had become enemies in the wake of Frick's handling of the Homestead steel strike in 1892. Les Standiford explores the partnership and fallout between Frick and Carnegie with crisp language and attention to detail, and John H. Mayer brings out the story's drama. With the nuances of a novel rather than the dryness of historical data, his voice work brings alive two historic giants. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
