The newest entry in the
sizzling international thriller series featuring Nicholas Drummond, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine
Freshly minted FBI agent Nicholas Drummond is barely out of
his Quantico training when he and his partner, Mike Caine, are called to
investigate a stabbing on Wall Street.
Their investigation, however, yields more questions than
answers. It quickly becomes clear that the victim, John Pearce, was more than
the naval historian and antiquities dealer he appeared to be. What Drummond
doesn’t know is that buying and selling rare books was Pearce’s cover, and that
he had devoted his life to discovering the whereabouts of a missing World War I
U-boat concealing a stash of gold bullion, and an unexpected surprise that only
raises more questions. When Drummond and Caine find both of Pearce’s adult
children have disappeared, the case assumes a new sense of urgency. The FBI
agents know their best lead lies in the victim’s cryptic final words: “The key
is in the lock.” But what key? What lock?
The search for Adam and Sophia Pearce takes them on an
international manhunt, which threatens to run them afoul of an eccentric
billionaire industrialist with his own plans not only for the lost gold, but
the creation of a weapon unlike anything the world has ever seen. Download and start listening now!
