In this sixth installment of the Isaac Bell series, our hero detective returns. Bell, a naive young detective in the year 1902 is only couple years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency. But now, he's got bad news for his boss. Though he was supposed to spy on the radical unionist rebels in the coal mines, Bell bears witness to an incident that leads him to believe a much bigger game is afoot, and that there may be a mastermind provoking this whole debacle.

If only Bell understood what he was truly up against. With time running out and under a week to prove he is in the right, Bell quickly realizes his opposition is in a far more powerful position than he could have imagined. And they will stop at nothing to achieve their aims, even if that means knocking a greenback detective out of their path... permanently.

Clive Eric Cussler was born in 1931. He is both a marine archaeologist and a writer of American adventure and thriller novels. Over seventeen times he has been listed on the New York Times best seller list. He has written more than fifty books and has also founded and chaired an agency for discovering and studying underwater shipwrecks. It is called the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA). Born in Illinois, Cussler was raised in California and has served in the Air Force. He first worked in advertising as a copywriter, and then in radio programming, and finally began writing novels.

Turn-of-the-century detective Isaac Bell goes undercover as a coal miner for his first solo mission in this novel in Clive Cussler's #1 New York Times bestselling series.

It is 1902, and a bright, inexperienced young man named Isaac Bell, only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency, has an urgent message for his boss. Hired to hunt for radical unionist saboteurs in the coal mines, he is witness to a terrible accident that makes him think something else is going on…that provocateurs are at work and bigger stakes are in play.

Little does he know just how big they are.

Given exactly one week to prove his case, Bell quickly finds himself pitted against two of the most ruthless opponents he has ever known—men of staggering ambition and cold-bloodedness who are not about to let some wet-behind-the-ears detective stand in their way. Download and start listening now!
