A Spark of Death

A Professor Bradshaw Mystery


Can death bring a man back to life? When UW 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. 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. The public wants a culprit—they want Bradshaw behind bars. The killer wants Bradshaw dead. His life and liberty threatened, Bradshaw discovers the thrill of investigation as he’s thrust deeper into the hunt. Questions abound. How had the Electric Machine’s Tesla Coil delivered a fatal shock? Was the murder personal—or connected to President McKinley’s planned visit? Were students involved, or in danger? And why had Bradshaw’s best friend, Henry, fled to Alaska the day of the murder? When Henry’s niece Missouri appears on Bradshaw’s porch in need of a home, her unorthodox views and femininity confuse and intrigue him as he struggles to protect his own haunting secret. Danger and death lurk everywhere—disguised as accidents. Has Bradshaw come alive again only to lose all he holds dear? Before it’s too late, will he discover the circuit path that led to a spark of death?
