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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 2/19/2014

    " I love the Clive Cussler story lines. So much history and so little time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 2/16/2014

    " I liked the Wrecker better but I like Issac Bell and the era the books are set in. I prefer Dirk Pitt series though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edward | 2/1/2014

    " very close to 5 star read, really no weaknesses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizpeveto | 1/31/2014

    " Cussler now has several different book series which he co-authors w/ other people. This one is another Isaac Bell book and believe it is the 3rd one. This time the plot involves military espionage of the US Navy by foreign powers. There is not too much interaction between his new fiancee and Issac; but is an interesting theory which probably did occur in the early days of the rapid military technology. Not too fast paced like some of his other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jan Johnson | 1/26/2014

    " It was just OK. I wouldn't recommend it. It certainly isn't one of Clive's better offerings. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Corey Tardif | 1/21/2014

    " When I first heard of Clive Cussler, I asked what kind of books he writes, and someone told me he writes adventure/thriller novels, I just happened to find this book at a used book store, not what I was expecting out of an adventure book. One reason I didn't care for it could have been because it takes place in the early 1900's and I don't get into books like that. It also just didn't seem to have that adventure touch to it, like his other books that I've read afterword. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 1/20/2014

    " As good as anyy of Cussler's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 12/28/2013

    " Really good book that brings the history of the period to live with extraordinary detail. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 12/21/2013

    " Gotta love Clive...this historical series featuring Isaac Bell is a fun frolic for everyone! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jose | 12/19/2013

    " Not dissapointed with this last book of the series of Isaac Bell... but looking forward for other books from Cussler... and maybe... find some sort of connection between his other novels... maybe mention of some characters from this series... will see... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginger | 12/18/2013

    " just can't get into this book, maybe I will come back to it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trista | 12/14/2013

    " I found it to be a great read. There were sometimes that I thought they would have picked up on clues sooner but that was a little typical of the second in the series as well. I loved the vivid detail of the time period. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lois | 11/21/2013

    " This was probably my least favorite Cussler book. It took me forever to read it. I started in the London airport last March. I just had a hard time staying interested in it. I finally just decided to get it read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene Ferland | 11/6/2013

    " I read this book first and out of order but it didn't matter because I love this series as much as the Numa and Oregon Files. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Roy | 7/3/2013

    " Nice pot boiler set in the 1900's. An early techno thriller "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith | 6/28/2013

    " Eh. It was boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryan | 8/4/2012

    " Mundane plot, interesting historical setting. Not nearly as exciting as the Dirk Pitt series, but certainly different. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saylaveev | 3/1/2012

    " I don't like all of the joint books done by him but this was good. It didn't try to follow in the Dirk Pitt novels but went its own way. I would probably read more of this line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine Page | 10/24/2011

    " historical fiction is a slower read for me, but a very good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 10/7/2011

    " The Isaac Bells books have been thoroughly enjoyable and this one did not disappoint. For a fun action story with a noble hero, you can't go wrong with The Spy. "

    " I used to like history-thrillers novels and I was attracted by this title but unfortunately my expectations were way too high than the reality. A little childish, story line apparently complex but too predictable at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 5/4/2011

    " I enjoyed this story. It has been nice to get away from the Dirk Pitt series and to read about some "historical" action adventure!

    "

About the Author
Author Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler, an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, began writing novels in 1965. He published his first work featuring continuous series hero Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first nonfiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the State University of New York Maritime College considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a PhD thesis and awarded Cussler a doctor of letters degree in May 1997. It was the first time since the college was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed. His books, many of which are New York Times bestsellers, have been published in more than forty languages in more than one hundred countries. He splits his time between Arizona and Colorado.
