Clive Cussler’s The Race is the international bestselling author’s follow up to The Spy and The Wrecker, the first two novels in the Isaac Bell series. The Race is a nerve-shredding historical thriller, set at the dawn of flight.
1910, and America’s first ever cross-country flying race has been sabotaged . . .
Newspaper magnate Preston Whiteway is offering a big prize for the first aviator to cross America in under fifty days. He wants Josephine Frost – the country’s leading as well as most glamorous pilot – to win. Which is why he’s hired Isaac Bell of the Van Dorn Detective Agency.
Josephine saw her husband Harry Frost kill a man. Now he wants her dead. And with underworld contacts ready to help in every city en route, he’ll do anything, go after anyone who gets in his way – including Whiteway and Bell.
Packed with brilliant twists and turns, The Race sees the intrepid Private Investigator locked in a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a killer whose resources are matched only by his willingness to cause mayhem during the race of a lifetime . . .
