A compelling telling of the infamous legal battles between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse over the design of the light bulb. Told from the perspective of the young attorney who acts as George Westinghouse’s legal counsel, this book is a must-read for those who love science-themed historical fiction.

Tesla, Westinghouse, and Edison are all well-known names, but until I read this novel about the lawsuits between Edison and Westinghouse, did I come to realize what a self-serving person Edison was. Told from the perspective of the young lawyer hired by Westinghouse, the characters come to life as we learn how General Electric came to be. Historical fiction writing at its best. The author has provided depth to all three famous men.
