    The race to win an electrical competition incites Professor Benjamin Bradshaw’s obsession for invention in this sequel to A Spark of Death. The contest winner’s telephonic system will deliver music of the Seattle Grand Theater to homes throughout the city, and Bradshaw is confident he can win. But he is diverted by a peddler and a child gone missing, while the assassination of President McKinley drops Bradshaw and the entire nation into shock. When Bradshaw discovers that the peddler’s child may have witnessed a murder, he follows her trail....

    Story

    This mystery and its predecessor are great fun if you like historical fiction, unusual methods of murder/mayhem, and an intelligent hero. You'll figure out whodunit before the hero, but he's probably more naive than you are, and a scientist rather than a detective. I like the arcane vignettes into what it was like when electricity was still something of a novelty. There's just enough electrical theory to make it understandable without descending into technical jargon that bores rather than enlightens. The reader doesn't get in the way of the story. His accents are different enough you can discern the characters, but not so broad as to be difficult to understand.

    "Great story, terrible reader"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite books, but I was unable to listen to more than 3 chapters because of the wooden, pedantic, monotone voice of the narrator. I hope in the future he will only be narrating economics books.
