In 1906, a groundbreaking Rolls-Royce prototype known as the Gray Ghost vanishes from the streets of Manchester, England, and it is only the lucky intervention of an American detective named Isaac Bell that prevents it from being lost forever. Not even he can save the good name of Marcus Peyton, however, the man wrongly blamed for the theft, and more than 100 years later, it is his grandson who turns to Sam and Remi Fargo to help prove his grandfather's innocence. But there is even more at stake than any of them know.

Rich with characters, history, intrigue, mystery, and I swear I held my breath until the very end. Who would EVER have guessed Sam and Remi would have to do it all with no ..... nahhhh, I can't tell. You are going to have to read this one to find out. Robin and Clive, you have REALLY outdone yourselves this time. I don't know if there will ever be another one like this. I loved it!

Hired to search for a collection of paintings worth half a billion dollars, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon soon find themselves in much deeper waters. Not only is the vicious leader of a Filipino insurgency using them to finance his attacks, but he has stumbled upon one of the most lethal secrets of World War II - a Japanese-developed drug, designed, but never used, to turn soldiers into superwarriors.

I was really sweating The Oregon would be gone...on the edge of my seat, my heart sank, and then...LOL you guys are. just going to have to read the book to see what happened. Each time I say how can the next one be better and then it is the best one yet. I had to remind myself to breathe from time to time.

Hetta Coffey is a globe-trotting civil engineer with attitude who is working on coming of age, a little late. Pushing forty and still single, Hetta is the epitome of the "B" word: bold, bossy, brassy, breezy, and brash. After leaving a lifelong swath of failed multinational affairs in her jet stream, it is no wonder Hetta prefers living with her dog, R.J. But old habits die hard, and trolling for triceps is Hetta's hobby....

Remenicint of the old '50's detective shows/movies with a bit of CSI flavor. Grabs you from the get go and when you think it is done, along comes another surprise and another. Lots of characters, mystery, romance, none of it overdone yet riveting to the core. Had me yelling out loud in parts like a good movie. Narrator was perfect! Can't wait to read/listen the rest of this series.

The crew locates the plane, but the secretary of state has vanished. It turns out Libya's new foreign minister has other plans for the conference, plans that Cabrillo cannot let happen.

In October 1943, a U.S. destroyer sailed out of Philadelphia and supposedly vanished, the result of a Navy experiment with electromagnetic radiation. The story was considered a hoax - but now Juan Cabrillo and his Oregon colleagues aren't so sure. There is talk of a new weapon soon to be auctioned, something very dangerous to America's interests, and the rumors link it to the great inventor Nikola Tesla, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the experiment? Are his notes in the hands of enemies?
