The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore

last daysThe author takes the reader back in time to the late 1800’s  when Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse were locked in a legal battle over who invented the light bulb and therefore held the right to power the country . The author based his historical novel around many actual people including the young lawyer, Paul Cravath, who Westinghouse hired to represent him in the long legal fight against Edison and Nikola Tesla, the brilliant and tortured physicist.

Easy to read, riveting story with inventors, lawyers, hucksters, double dealings and greed-everything that will keep you turning the pages!

As historical fiction, the author weaves both fact and fiction into a fascinating story but unlike many other authors, Graham Moore provides a section of notes at the end where he separates facts from fiction and suggests further reading.

I knew little about this facet of history and found it to be educational and highly entertaining at the same time!
