Seattle mystery writer Bernadette Pajer will read from her latest book, The Edison Effect: a Professor Bradshaw Mystery at the Fremont Library on Tuesday October 14th at 6:30 p.m. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
In three earlier books, University of Washington electrical engineering professor Benjamin Bradshaw has established a reputation for solving mysteries involving the science of electricity. Now, Thomas Edison has come to Seattle trying to discover a mysterious and dangerous invention that was lost years earlier in Elliott Bay. When an electrician at the Bon Marché department store is found dead clutching a string of one of Edison’s new Christmas lights, Professor Bradshaw is reluctantly drawn into helping solve the murder.
Bernadette Pajer’s Professor Bradshaw Mysteries have been called “deft, highly entertaining” by Publisher’s Weekly and “a great series” by the Portland Review of Books. She’s a University of Washington graduate, and a proud member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Northwest Science Writers, the Washington Academy of Sciences, and the Seattle7Writers.org. Research is her favorite activity, and she happily delves into Pacific Northwest history and the early days of electrical invention as she plots Professor Bradshaw’s investigations.
