Detective Isaac Bell, hero of The Chase and The Wrecker, returns in the remarkable new adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling 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.
