Publisher's Summary

It's the summer of 1880, and Thomas Edison's incandescent bulb is poised to put the gaslight industry out of business. Knowing a good business opportunity, former New York shopkeeper Steve Dancy sets out to obtain a license for Edison's electric lamp. Edison agrees, under one condition: Dancy and his friends must stop the saboteurs who are disrupting his electrification of Wall Street.
After two years of misadventures out West, the assignment appears to be right up his alley. But new troubles await him in New York City. Dancy has brought a woman with him, and his high-society family disapproves. More worrisome, he has also unknowingly dragged along a feud that began out West. The feud could cost him Edison's backing...and possibly his life.

Steve Dancy In New York?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The Steve Dancy series started with Best's first book "The Shopkeeper" where Steve Dancy comes from his refined eastern upbringing to adventures in the rugged and wild West. In this book his business in the West brings him back to his roots in New York to rub elbows with very familiar celebrities of the time. As usual the author did his homework researching history to give his fictional characters the importance that makes you feel like you were there at a pivotal time in 19th century America. This is an easy but compelling "listen" and cuts the monotony of freeway traffic in Los Angeles.
