Gas lamps still flicker in the streets, but electric light has become a reality; he who controls the means of turning night into day will make history—and a vast fortune. Fresh out of law school, Paul Cravath takes a case that seems impossible to win. Paul's client, George Westinghouse, has been sued by Thomas Edison over a billion-dollar question: Who invented the light bulb and who holds the right to power the country? The author of The Sherlockian and the Academy Award-winning screenplay for The Imitation Game, Graham Moore chronicles Paul's entry into the world of high society, where he will cross paths with Nikolai Tesla and opera singer Agnes Huntington—a flawless performer onstage and off— and find that no one is who they seem.
