Well told story about the advent of electricity in the U.S. slotting in 'facts' wherever to serve it.  Reads like a cliffhanging screenplay, and, guess what, movie is about to be made.  History major Ciwt finds such books/movies entertaining (sometimes) but questions the concept of turning historical figures and events into whatever fiction the writer has in mind and presenting them as facts.
