- 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 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.
Check Out What Readers Said about Kindle/eBook!
“This is not thought provoking loaded with abstract thought and argument. This is brain candy. It is what you read after a hard day at work and you just need to recharge. A good read. Typical Cussler-lots of action and the good guys will in the end kick some villian ass.” By Bruce Cadwallader
“If you pick up a book by this author and can force yourself to put it down after reading a chapter you are very strong willed indeed. I have purchased every book Cussler has written and always look forward to his next one. No author today has the ability this man has when it comes to writting the fiction novel. A few come close and most of them have co-written with Mr. Cussler . Let me know when the next novel comes out, I’ll buy it in a heartbeat!” By Richard Meinhardt
