Clive Cussler writing with Justin Scott
It is 1908, and international tensions are mounting. When a battleship gun-designer commits suicide, the man’s daughter turns to the legendary Van Dorn Detective Agency to clear his name. Chief investigator Isaac Bell soon realises that the clues point to murder. When more suspicious deaths follow, it becomes clear that someone is orchestrating the destruction of America’s brightest technological minds…and the murders all connect to a top-secret project called Hull 44. As the intrigue deepens, Bell finds himself pitted against German, Japanese and British spies. 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.
