Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of the Les Norton series. The Tesla Legacy, set in Newcastle, Muswellbrook, Scone, and the mysterious Burning Mountain in New South Wales, is an action-packed, pace-driven thriller woven with intrigue and a delightful touch of humour and romance, and an ending guaranteed to send chills down your spine.

Nikola Tesla was a scientist that some argue was a greater genius than Einstein. He died in the United States in 1943, but what was he doing in Australia in 1925? A Newcastle electrician and his girlfriend try to find out, but it seems more than one person wants to stop them, including the CIA.

The Tesla Legacy proves, once again, why Robert G. Barrett is, according to The Australian newspaper, the king of popular fiction.

The grouse! Very funny

Love this author and narrator. Just a romping good story. It is very funny in an unique Australian way. I am not sure that non Australians will understand the book

This book was ridiculously disappointing.

This was the biggest disappointment yet to be found on audible....I was really hoping for a book about tesla, not some two bit made up version of how his life "might have played out from teen years". ugh. This made me want to delete audible.com

Hard to understand. Couldn't get passed chapter 1

Would you try another book from Robert G. Barrett and/or Dino Marnika?

To distorted and a Aussie narrator made it difficult to listen to. Audio poor. Not what I even expected.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Depends more marketing social media books but I will listen to the sample very carefully.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dino Marnika?

Definitely not Dina

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed

Any additional comments?

I went by the title. Can't judge by the cover alone
