#1 New York Times bestselling author

'Mesmerizing, clever, and absolutely crackling, The Last Days of Night is a triumph of imagination. Graham Moore has chosen Gilded Age New York as his playground, with outsized characters – Edison, Tesla, Westinghouse – as his players. The result is a beautifully researched, endlessly entertaining novel that will leave you buzzing.'
Gillian Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl

'A fascinating portrait of American inventors ... Moore weaves a complex web. ... He conjures Gilded Age New York City so vividly, it feels like only yesterday.'
Entertainment Weekly

From Graham Moore, the Academy Award–winning screenwriter of The Imitation Game and New York Times bestselling author of The Sherlockian, comes a thrilling novel – based on actual events – about the nature of genius, the cost of ambition, and the battle to electrify America.

New York, 1888. Gas lamps still flicker in the city streets, but the miracle of electric light is in its infancy. The person who controls the means to turn night into day will make history – and a vast fortune. A young untested lawyer named Paul Cravath, fresh out of Columbia Law School, 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 holds the right to power the country? The case affords Paul entry to the heady world of high society – the glittering parties in Gramercy Park mansions, and the more insidious dealings done behind closed doors. The task facing Paul is beyond daunting. Edison is a wily, dangerous opponent with vast resources at his disposal – private spies, newspapers in his pocket and the backing of J.P. Morgan himself. Yet this unknown lawyer shares with his famous adversary a compulsion to win at all costs. How will he do it? In obsessive pursuit of victory, Paul crosses paths with Nikola Tesla, an eccentric, brilliant inventor who may hold the key to defeating Edison, and with Agnes Huntington, a beautiful opera singer who proves to be a flawless performer on stage and off. As Paul takes greater and greater risks, he’ll find that everyone in his path is playing their own game, and no one is quite who they seem.

'The Last Days of Night is a wonder, a riveting historical novel that is part legal thriller, part techno-suspense ... Thoughtful and hugely entertaining.'
Scott Turow, bestselling author of The Laws of Our Fathers
