"Seattle in 1901 is a bustling blend of frontier attitude and cosmopolitan swagger. The Snoqualmie Falls Power Plant lights the city, but to most Seattleites, electricity is new-fangled and dangerous. When University of Washington Professor Benjamin Bradshaw discovers a despised colleague dead inside the Faraday Cage of the Electric Machine, his carefully controlled world shatters. The facts don't add up. The police shout murder--and Bradshaw is the lone suspect. To protect his young son and clear his name, he must find the killer. The public wants Bradshaw behind bars; the killer wants him dead..."--Dust cover flap.

Interesting mystery set a century ago. Good characters, intriguing plot, low key - no blood.

Another great author from the Pacific Northwest! I cannot wait for the UW Mystery Tours. As an engineer, it was fun to take in the electrical engineering history in a way that everyone will find interesting.
