You kind of got a small history lesson with this book. There are things that I didn't even know about Tesla that are in this book. I really enjoyed the historical more so than the murder mystery. But that was good too I was so worried about doing this review and letting something go I normally review each individual story but I think I'll leave that a mystery to you. First one is about a murder of a record executive and man did that one shock me. The second book is this store is called the death ray mystery about Tesla’s death ray and how the Russians may have stolen it. But man it was fun to read. Then there are small stories about Kennedy, Tesla, Edison and so many others, that gave you lots of history lessons. I really enjoyed this book and I hope you do too.
Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it when you do; they value your opinions too
This collection of short stories is great for the historian at heart. Crime fans might also get a kick out the selection. Of course, if you’re a fan of DiSilvio’s other work, you won’t want to miss out on this one either.
These short stories will take you on various adventures like in mysterious forests and even in the Revolutionary War. His mysteries and thrillers are intriguing and his historical stories are captivating and will teach you a few things about history you might not have known about. These stories are split up into 7 different chapters which altogether is 144 pages. There are also a few pictures included in the novel which can help you to get an idea of what the story will be about.
If you’re looking for a quick yet unique read, you should definitely check out this book. This collection of short stories will captivate you and make it hard for you to put the book down.
The first story was not especially to my liking. It was like reading an extract of a novel instead of a short story – there was far too little description of the victim and the murder investigation, and unnecessary focus on the roots of jazz music and a rapper named ‘KrayZee’. However, after that the book suddenly became much more interesting, with stories about a fighter pilots reminiscing about love when captured by the Nazis, Tesla’s Death Ray invention and his tussle with Edison and the eccentric genius of Leonardo da Vinci.
The writing is rich (if my pun be pardoned) and certainly intriguing. This is a treat for ardent history lovers, and even informative on some aspects.
The first story did feel a bit out of place. I liked it, don’t get me wrong. It was a short, suspenseful thriller that was entertaining although I felt a bit too short. It didn’t really seem to go with the historical theme found throughout the rest of the book. Regardless, the stories were entertaining and mostly engaging to read.
Overall, the author wrote knowledgeably and his language was beautifully done at times. The stories were mostly well-paced making the book easy to pick up here and there. I would recommend to those history fans that like their fiction.
This was a quick read and the historic stories would probably be good for younger readers.
The author has a nice writing style and the book was a very quick read. It was an enjoyable weekend read.
