The Titanic Secret

Front Cover
Diversified Publishing, Sep 10, 2019 - Fiction - 666 pages
Isaac Bell infiltrates the no-holds-barred world of the early auto industry--and almost ends up a highway fatality himself--in the thrilling action-adventure novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.

In 1903, the automobile industry is in its infancy, but growing rapidly--and a young Van Dorn private detective named Isaac Bell notices something curious. An unusual number of independent automobile engineers are being killed in race-car wrecks, factory accidents, and saloon brawls--and their best patents and systems being snapped up the Consolidated Motor Company, a powerhouse syndicate run by two hard-charging brothers.

Posing as a race driver with a particularly fast car, Bell infiltrates race meets from Paris to Daytona to Garden City, and learns along the way that the brothers have a slogan: "If all else fails, buy out his widow." He will soon come to know the truth of that all too well.

About the author (2019)

CLIVE CUSSLER is the author of more than fifty books in five bestselling series, including Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Fargo. His life nearly parallels that of his hero, Dirk Pitt. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he and his NUMA crew of volunteers have discovered more than seventy-five lost ships of historic significance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine, Hunley, which was raised in 2000 with much press publicity. Like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features more than eighty examples of custom coachwork. Cussler lives in Arizona and Colorado.

JACK DU BRUL is the author of the Philip Mercer series, most recently The Lightning Stones, and is the coauthor with Cussler of the Oregon Files novels Dark Watch, Skeleton Coast, Plague Ship, Corsair, The Silent Sea, and The Jungle. He lives in Vermont.
