Publisher's Summary

Detective Isaac Bell, hero of The Chase and The Wrecker, returns in the remarkable new adventure from the number-one New York Times best-selling author.

It is 1908, and international tensions are mounting as the world plunges toward war. When a brilliant American battleship-gun designer dies in a sensational apparent suicide, the man's grief-stricken daughter turns to the legendary Van Dorn Detective Agency to clear her father's name.

Van Dorn puts his chief investigator on the case, and Isaac Bell soon realizes that the clues point not to suicide but to murder. And when more suspicious deaths follow, it becomes clear that someone - an elusive spy - is orchestrating the destruction of America's brightest technological minds....and the murders all connect to a top-secret project called Hull 44.

But that is just the beginning. As the intrigue deepens, Bell will find himself pitted against German, Japanese, and British spies, in a mission that encompasses dreadnought battleships, Teddy Roosevelt's Great White Fleet, Chinatown, Hell's Kitchen, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Isaac Bell has certainly faced perilous situations before, but this time it is more than the future of his country that's at stake - it's the fate of the world.

    "1908 espionage case for Isaac Bell!"

    One does not associate a private detective with an espionage case, but in this great case set in 1908 Isaac Bell does have an espionage case. Clive Cussler writing with Justin Scott may be better than writing alone.

    I loved the 10 year flash ahead at the end.

    Great book narrated by the best narrator in the business!

    "Another wonderful story"

    Though a little bored down, in the middle, the story line was great. From beginning to end many twists and turns as to keep one in guessing about.

    "Not as strong as the last two, but still great!"

    To me, this 3rd book in the series was not quite as strong as the previous two, but was still a great book. The main character, Bell, was every bit as charming and strong in this one, but the story was just a bit more of a stretch. Again, a minor flaw in an otherwise excellent book. Can't wait to move in to book 4!

    "Not the best cussler"

    Strays from the typical issac bell novel my least favorite for sure. Too many spys not enough action Ive read number 1,2,3 and 9 hoping 4,5,6,7 and 8 are like 1,3and 9 this one is a bore. 1,3, and 9 are excellent imho
