It's 1908 and international tensions are mounting as the world plunges toward war. When a brilliant American battleship gun designer dies in a sensational apparent suicide the man's grief-stricken daughter turns to the legendary Van Dorn Detective Agency to clear her father's name. Van Dorn puts his chief investigator on the case and Isaac Bell soon realizes that the clues point not to suicide but to murder.
Teddy Roosevelt has high hopes of establishing U.S. naval supremacy with the dispatch of the "Great White Fleet," a flotilla of warships. Enter Det. Isaac Bell, who finds himself up against an international cast of villains bent on destroying the fleet at any cost. This is Cussler (www.cusslerbooks.com) and Scott's third Bell novel, following The Wrecker, whose Books on Tape/Penguin Audio edition also received a starred review (LJ 3/1/10). Scott Brick (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09) brings the story to life with his outstanding vocalizations and proves, once again, that a team of great writers and a great narrator can't be beat. Highly recommended.-Joseph L. Carlson, Vandenberg Air Force Base Lib., Lompoc, CA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
