New York, 1888, a gilded age when science has become the new deity and the scene for an outstanding gem of an historical thriller by the author of THE HOLMES AFFAIR and screenwriter of the Oscar-winning THE IMITATION GAME. Based on true events and people, the storyline follows the rivalries, almost wars, between the various parties who wished to bring electricity to the masses and the cities: Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse foremost, who plan to light up the continent from coast to coast and, in the process, make untold fortunes. Add a sprinkle of fascinating misfits including the charismatic inventor Nikola Tesla and the manipulative but beautiful opera singer Grace Huntington and you have a recipe for a rip-roaring adventure of a thriller with wit, beauty and sparkle and the dazzling portrait of a forgotten world brought to life in splendid fashion. Narrated by fictional tyro lawyer Paul Cravath who takes on a seemingly impossible case, this tale about what was essentially the invention of a light bulb is both illuminating and a must-read. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
