Book Description

"ALTERNATING CURRENT" A Tesla Novel - John Agostino


Historical Thriller Based on the Scientific Inventions of Nikola Tesla


Why is the government still afraid of this man? After all, he's been dead for half a century!


More than fifty years after his death, most people are just beginning to discover the genius of Nikola Tesla. Secrets hidden from the public for decades are somehow surfacing. Classified documents siezed by the government after Tesla's death have turned up in the most unlikely places. The FBI is befuddled, the CIA is embarrased, but the KGB is excited, they've been trying to get their hands on those documents for years.

Alternating Current merges fact and fiction in this historical thriller based on the greatest scientist/inventor of all time. Why did the government sieze his laboratory notebooks immediately upon his death? And why keep them secret for so long? Nikola Tesla, although dead for decades, has the last laugh.


If you like conspiracy theory books, spy thriller novels, or historical fiction best sellers, you'll love this novel based on actual turn of the century events during America's Industrial Age.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well-written Nicola Tesla tribute November 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I discovered this book while it was available for free on Amazon, and since its back cover text mentioned Nicola Tesla I had to read this. After all, Tesla was a genius and he is also a star in many Steampunk books.

William Trbojevic, to most people better known as Turbo because of his impossible last name, is a descendant of Nicola Tesla. His shop is not doing very well. His marriage isn't doing very well either. "Alternate Current" throws him into a whirl of incidents and meetings that throw his life, and that of the people he gets involved with, into a maelstrom of action. Secret agents, FBI, CIA and people who work in a book shop are all mixed into this well-paced story that offers many twists and surprises that will keep you occupied and entertained for the duration of the book.

If you like a story with action, humour and fast scenery, I can recommend this one. And do ask for Tevin as your taxi driver when you go to the Bahamas. For $50 he'll take you anywhere.

I thoroughly enjoyed this new novel from local author, John Agostino! The story was interesting and educational. I found myself researching Tesla! There were multiple storylines that all intertwined to create quite the page-turner. I am looking forward to the next book from this author!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tesla would have loved it. July 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A funny satire with some deep underlying truths. The real inventor of alternating current "a/c" was Tesla not Edison but evidently he was so far ahead of his time some people thought he was crazy and others dangerous. This book is a spoof of every government agency secret or otherwise and is a conspiracy theorists dream. It makes you laugh but if you really think about it much it could by scary. I came away intrigued to learn more about Tesla and entertained by this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Read this Book July 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
After I read a book, I always think to myself "Did I gain anything by reading this book"? I am happy to say that Alternating Current was an eye opener for me. Sorry to say, I had never heard of Nikola Tesla, his inventions etcetera. The author,John Agostino wrote a great book. I loved the characters and the story line. I was drawn in by he clever and witty and unexpected turn of events in the story. Kudos to the Author for this amazing and enlightening book. Now, I will never forget Nikola Tesla, and that is a good thing. You gotta read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great madcap fun. January 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was very fun to read. The not so secret, secret agents, the not so special, special agents, add in Nicola Tessa's nephew trying to gain recognition for his uncle's genius while dodging dysfunctional CIA agents, spys, and assorted other crazies, while trying to save his father's electronics store, and his marriage, not to mention his life, and fun begins.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow story
The protag, Turbo, fixes radios but doesn't like anything electronic? This is not credible. This story was too slow in developing but was well written. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars It's supposed to be a thriller, not a comedy/satire
Unfortunately it is written as a satire. Not that I don't like satires, but the way it is written is ridiculous. There even seem to be pauses for a laugh track. Read more

More About the Author

John Agostino is an American Novelist born on September 3, 1959, in Brooklyn, New York. As the son of Italian immigrants, he effortlessly translates this robust culture and uses it as a rich, but subtle backdrop for his novels.

John's tenth grade English teacher, Ms. Carmichael, spotted him as a true writer when she read his Thanksgiving essay written from the turkey's perspective. He waited many years before heeding her advice to make writing a profession, but his perspective is still both haunting and hilarious.

Reality dominated the years between those early works and today. According to John, it's been a good reality---one not completely dissimilar from that of the loving and bewildered protagonists in his stories. John and his wife are the proud parents of four children.

His reality is fine; however, his passion involves escaping reality. This is what makes John an effective fiction writer. Readers grab his stories and hang on, much in the way we all navigate life at times.

John says his qualifications for the writing profession are the ingredients of a happy life, an overactive imagination, and a willingness to work hard.

Mostly though, he loves to write.
