This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Join Private Detective Isaac Bell as he navigates the seedy back alleys of New York, in the ninth book in the action-packed series from Sunday Times bestseller Clive Cussler.

Crime, corruption and murder. . . a vicious organisation is terrorising the city and only one man can stop them.

THE PERPETRATORS

It is 1906 and in New York City the Italian crime group known as the Black Hand is on a menacing spree: kidnapping, extortion, arson.

THE INVESTIGATOR

Detective Isaac Bell of the Van Dorn Agency is hired to form a special "Black Hand Squad," but the gangsters appear to be everywhere. So much so that Bell begins to wonder if there are imitator mobs emerging, other criminals using the Black Hand name to further terrorise the city.

WHERE WILL IT LEAD?

But then the murders begin, each one of a man more powerful than the last. Bell knows that copycat or not he's facing a lethal organisation, and to his dismay their ultimate target may be the most powerful man of all.

From Publishers Weekly

01 February 2016 – Set in 1906, bestseller Cussler's thrilling ninth Isaac Bell adventure (after 2015's The Assassin, also coauthored with Scott) pits Bell, an operative in the Van Dorn Detective Agency, against Antonio Branco, who's outwardly a respectable New York City businessman but is in fact a ruthless crime boss. Branco is willing to bribe and murder to enhance his profits, and he does both to land a contract to "provision the biggest construction job in America." Bell has his hands full working to thwart the Black Hand in New York City, a gang that exploits poor Italians and rich alike, and which benefits from the inadequate resources of the NYPD. But he gets even busier when he learns that a member of a "secret tycoon club," who fears Teddy Roosevelt will learn that he illegally profited from the Panama Canal Treaty, wants the president dead. The fascinating and suspenseful plot compensates for thin characterizations.
