THE MYSTERIOUS CASE OF RUDOLF DIESEL Genius, Power, and Deception on the Eve of World War I

by | Read by Scott Brick

Biography & Memoir • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

While the word "diesel" is well known, few know it's actually the name of the man who invented the engine that now powers much of the world. Scott Brick narrates this biography of Rudolf Diesel magnificently. The twist in this work is that Diesel "died" under mysterious circumstances in September 1913. Brunt goes into great detail regarding Diesel's family and the times in which he lived and invented his engine. Especially interesting is the story of Diesel's mysterious disappearance, which reads like an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries" and a James Bond movie combined. Brick's voice is a bit gravelly, but his intonation, pacing, and understated inflection are all excellent, making this a captivating production.
