Meet Joe Tesla. A software millionaire who now lives in a Victorian house build beneath Grand Central Station in NYC with his service dog Edison because he suffers from a recent case of agoraphobia in The World Beneath.When Joe and Edison stumble upon a man breaking down a wall that hides a 1940s Presidential train car, Joe knows he wants to know more about it. But when he returns, he finds the man dead and now the killer is after him, looking for the papers the man had before he was murdered. Now, Joe is being hunted by a killer and the police. Trapped underground and inside by his agoraphobia, Joe will use the resources he has at his disposal to find out why the man was killed and why he’s now a target himself.
Joe and Edison are a great team and I love the idea of the home built beneath Grand Central. Wouldn’t that be cool if it was real? It is amazing how so many locations are connected to the train station. While Joe is restricted to the location, there are so many places he can go inside there that he had access to all he needs. The only thing he can’t do it take Edison outside, so he has a dog walker for that. Joe is also related to inventor Nikola Tesla and I’d love to know more about that. It looks like we might in the second book, The Tesla Legacy,which I will be reading next.
