Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

On the ocean liner Mauretania , two European scientists with a dramatic new invention are barely rescued from abduction by the Van Dorn Detective Agency's intrepid chief investigator, Isaac Bell. Unfortunately, they are not so lucky the second time. The thugs attack again-and this time one of the scientists dies. What are they holding that is so precious? Only something that will revolutionize business and popular culture-and perhaps something more.

For war clouds are looming, and a ruthless espionage agent has spotted a priceless opportunity to give the Germans an edge. It is up to Isaac Bell to figure out who he is, what he is up to, and stop him. But he may already be too late . . . and the future of the world may just hang in the balance.

Library Journal Review

This title is the fifth outing in best-seller machine Cussler's Isaac Bell detective series. While sailing to New York with his bride, Bell rescues from kidnappers two Austrian scientists who have invented a revolutionary new machine. While Bell thwarts unknown thugs from stealing the invention from the ship's hold, one of the scientists is murdered. Scott Brick's clear, nuanced reading captures the characters' various speech patterns, accents, and personalities. VERDICT Recommended for Isaac Bell fans and historical mystery fiction devotees. [The Putnam hc, published in March, was a New York Times best seller; the Berkley mass market pb will publish in March 2013.-Ed.]-Ilka Gordon, Siegal Coll. of Judaic Studies Lib., Cleveland (c) Copyright 2012.

Publishers Weekly Review

Scott Brick delivers straightforward narration in the audio edition of this latest thriller from Cussler and Scott that follows the adventures of detective Isaac Bell during the early 20th century. This time around, Bell is aboard the British ocean liner Mauretania, heading home to the United States, when an attempt is made to kidnap two European scientists. Bell's timely intervention forestalls the crime, but, of course, things don't remain calm, and the powers behind the attempted abduction try again. Brick shines in his creation of European accents for the supporting cast and appropriately adjusts his pacing for the book's inevitable action sequences. Cussler and Scott are veteran suspense writers, and Brick-a seasoned narrator-proves their equal in this entertaining audiobook. A Putnam hardcover. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
