Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

On the ocean liner "Mauretania," two European scientists with a dramatic new invention are barely rescued from abduction by the Van Dorn Detective Agency's intrepid chief investigator, Isaac Bell. Unfortunately, they are not so lucky the second time. The thugs attack again-and this time one of the scientists dies. What are they holding that is so precious? Only something that will revolutionize business and popular culture-and perhaps something more.

For war clouds are looming, and a ruthless espionage agent has spotted a priceless opportunity to give the Germans an edge. It is up to Isaac Bell to figure out who he is, what he is up to, and stop him. But he may already be too late . . . and the future of the world may just hang in the balance.

About the author

Biography of Cussler, Clive

Clive Cussler was born in Aurora, Illinois on July 15, 1931. He attended Pasadena City College for two years before enlisting in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. After his discharge from the military, he worked first as a copywriter and later as a creative director for two of the nation's most successful advertising agencies. At that time, he wrote and produced radio and television commercials that won numerous international awards, including one at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.

He began writing in 1965 and published his first novel featuring Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first non-fiction work, The Sea Hunters, was published in 1996. He has written over 50 books including the Dirk Pitt series, the NUMA Files series, Oregon Files series, and the Isaac Bell series. He is the Chairman of NUMA (National Underwater and Marine Agency), a non-profit group which he himself began. He and his crew of marine experts and NUMA volunteers have discovered over 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites.


Review by Library Journal (2012-07-01)

This title is the fifth outing in best-seller machine Cussler's Isaac Bell detective series. While sailing to New York with his bride, Bell rescues from kidnappers two Austrian scientists who have invented a revolutionary new machine. While Bell thwarts unknown thugs from stealing the invention from the ship's hold, one of the scientists is murdered. Scott Brick's clear, nuanced reading captures the characters' various speech patterns, accents, and personalities.

Verdict: Recommended for Isaac Bell fans and historical mystery fiction devotees.
