Summary
"Inventor Thomas Alva Edison is a ruthless businessman, intent on advancing General Electric and beating all rivals like Nikola Tesla and Westinghouse. Edison has agents in place in Seattle but he's come himself in pursuit of a mysterious invention lost in 1901 in Elliott Bay. When Edison asks for information, few refuse. But not University of Washington Professor Benjamin Bradshaw who's earned a reputation as a private investigator where science--electricity--is concerned. Bradshaw hopes that the lost device, one conceived in anger by an anarchist and harnessed for murder, will elude Edison's hired divers. Then one December morning in 1903, the Bon March<U+00d4>e's Department Store electrician is found dead in the Men's Wear Window clutching a festoon of Edison's new holiday lights. Bradshaw believes Edison has set a dangerous game in motion. Motives multiply as the dead man's secrets surface alongside rivalries at the Bon March<U+00d4>e. Bradshaw, his sleuthing partner Henry Pratt, and the Seattle PD's Detective O'Brien pursue leads, but none spark Bradshaw's intuition. His heart is not in the investigation but in a courtship that will force him to defy his Catholic faith or lose his beloved, Missouri. Then a crossroads in the case forces him to face his personal fears and his first professional failure. Whatever the outcomes, his life is about to change" --
