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
After that, prepare for a 180-degree turn. Di Silvio gets into the world of history and tells the stories of an RAF pilot who ends up imprisoned in the Nazi Auschwitz camp finding love amongst the dread; about the impact of the financier’s decisions like JP Morgan and Westinghouse on genius inventions like Tesla’s Death Ray, the pull-and-push balance between Edison and Tesla, and how their discoveries shaped the world; Kennedy’s quirkiness and how that shaped his destiny in the time of Edgar Hoover and Martin Luther King, and many other useful historical facts that tell us about a history we should not forget.
How are the lives of ordinary, genius and rich people intertwined? In more ways than you can imagine. I, for example, had no idea that Nikola Tesla and Mark Twain were friends. Or that Edison and Sarah Bernhardt knew each other, for that matter. I wonder if DiSilvio intends on exploring the story about Tesla more - it is perpetual mystery surrounded in a mist that needs some clarification.
