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.

Isaac Bell returns in the remarkable new adventure in the #1 New York Times
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 that something more is going on—that provocateurs are at work and
bigger stakes are in play.
Little does he know just how big they are. Given 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-blooded cruelty … who are not about to let some wet-behind-the-ears
detective stand in their way.
