The RaceBook - 2011
Intrepid detective Isaac Bell engages in his most dangerous case yet.
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 fewer than fifty days. He is even sponsoring one of the prime candidates - an intrepid aviatrix 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 try again. Bell has tangled with Harry Frost before, and knows the man has made his millions leading gangs of thieves, murders and thugs in every city across the country. He also knows Frost won't be after just his wife, but after Whiteway as well. And Bell knows that if he takes the case, Frost will be after him, too.
Yes, Bell knows all that, but he still has no idea what he has just gotten himself into. Things are not quite what they seem to him - and over the next several weeks, that may well prove to be fatal.
Filled with the intricate plotting and dazzling set pieces that are Cussler's trademarks, The Race is a stunning new novel from the grandmaster of adventure.
