Detective Isaac Bell returns, in the thrilling new adventure from the number-one New York Times best-selling author.
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 to stop him. But he may already be too late... and the future of the world may just hang in the balance.

I love books with significance
I have enjoyed the whole Isaac Bell series so far. Each book has it's own issues, twists and turns. Lots of interesting detective work when they had to do the leg work and a sweet love story worked in.
Try this series, start with book one and you will not be disappointed. Easy listening, interesting bad guys, smart detective work and great outcome.
The story jumps details areas and goes long winded in others. I want to get more but the writing is starting to drop off.
I usually listen to other Cussler books nonstop but these coop books are lacking.
Bell is cool. Brick is the best narrator. I look forward to the next book.
Clive Cussler was riveting with plenty of detail to bring the story to life. Scott Brick's character voicing along with his easy pace made the experience phenomenal.
Kudos to them both!!!
Cussler and Scott always do an excellent job of providing fast paced action with strong historical detail. The imagery is clear and characterizations well drawn. Be prepared to want to finish as seamlessly as you possibly can!
