Detective Isaac Bell returns in the remarkable new adventure from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.
It is 1910, the age of flying machines is still in its infancy, and newspaper publisher Preston Whiteway is offering $50,000 for the first daring aviator to cross America in less than fifty days. He is even sponsoring one of the prime candidates-an intrepid woman named Josephine Frost-and that's where Bell, chief investigator for the Van Dorn Detective Agency, comes in.
Frost's violent-tempered husband has just killed her lover and tried to kill her, and he is bound to make another attempt. Bell has tangled with Harry Frost before; he knows that the man has made his millions leading gangs of thieves, murderers, and thugs in every city across the country. He also knows that Frost won't be only after his wife, but after Whiteway as well. And if Bell takes the case…Frost will be after him, too.
Detective Isaac Bell literally takes off in his latest pre-World War I adventure. To protect aviatrix Joseph Frost from her homicidal husband Harry, the intrepid sleuth becomes a very active observer of a cross-country flying machine competition. The $50,000 stakes are high, but unless Isaac can thwart the insanely jealous would-be killer, one competitor won't live to see the end of the race. As in the previous episodes (The Chase; The Wrecker; The Spy), Clive Cussler and co-author Justin Scott alternate period-perfect cliffhangers and suspenseful action that speaks to any age.
