  • Overview
    The Water Engine is set in 1934. Its central character, Charles Lang, is a young amateur inventor, who designs an engine that runs on water. He plans to patent it, make a fortune, and live happily ever after with his sister Rita Lang,[1] but his dream begins to unravel when he finds himself up against two hoodlum-like attorneys, Morton Gross and Lawrence Oberman.
