Fatal Induction is Northwest author Bernadette Pajer’s second story featuring Professor of Electrical Engineering Benjamin Bradshaw from the University of Washington. It is circa 1900 and Bradshaw is involved in a search to find a young girl who witnessed a murder. Like Pajer’s first tale, this story is a real page turner. Expect a lot of twists and turns and a very involved plot. The development of radio and speakers is integral to the story. The socioeconomic history of Seattle is also included. Prosperous characters reside in middle class homes while others frequent bars and brothels. President McKinley’s shocking 1901 assassination also receives attention. Bernadette Pajer has created a great series. Readers will enjoy Fatal Induction.
