A covert operation with catastrophic global consequences
collides with fate in this ingeniously inventive novel of conspiracy,
subterfuge, and murder unfurling against a factual, tragic, and heart-stopping
moment in history.
April 1912: Shortly after midnight on Wilhelmstrasse in
Berlin, mere yards from the British Embassy, an English spy is shot after a
clandestine meeting with a German government official. He utters three cryptic
words to a sentry, then dies. It’s an ambush as calculated and cold-blooded as
the scheme it helps set in motion.
For Gunther Voss, a tyrannical German financier who has
amassed a fortune in mining, it’s the biggest gamble he has ever undertaken:
commit America to joining forces with Germany against Great Britain, destroy an
empire, and secure for himself the invaluable South African mining concessions
currently controlled by the British. It would make the formidable Voss, already
a figure of both fear and admiration in America, one of the wealthiest and most
powerful men in the world. Even as devious, self-seeking, and unthinkable as
the plan is, with an alliance as strong as America and Germany, it’s more than
It has fallen on the unique talents of Alex Tremayne of
Britain’s Secret Service Bureau and beautiful Maria Weston, a pioneering,
fearless, and experienced American agent currently working in Britain, to stop
Voss dead in his tracks. Traveling undercover as man and wife, their mission is
to neutralize Voss’s plan before he reaches the States. And they’ll be tracking
Voss’s every move on the eventful transatlantic journey in unparalleled luxury,
occupying a first class suite on board the Titanic, on her heralded maiden
voyage from Southampton to the Port of New York.
But Tremayne and Weston are unprepared for the explosive
plays of fate that await them, as well as their prey, over the next few nights
of their doomed journey. For the ever-shifting dedication to duty and the
choices between life and death will become more immediate, more intimate, more
demanding, and far more treacherous than they could ever have imagined. Download and start listening now!
