It's 1910 and Chief Investigator Isaac Bell, along with fellow Van Dorn detective, Archie Abbott, is escorting a Wall Street stock swindler to his trial in New York aboard the ocean liner Mauretania. Pair intend to enjoy the open sea and make use of the leisure time to plan Bell?s wedding to Miss Marion Morgan, but are forced to change plans when two European scientists are nearly abducted and forced overboard.

There?s something in their possession, an historic invention, and there?s a German munitions trust that will stop at nothing to steal it.

Something that will revolutionize business and world culture?and perhaps something more.
