A gorgeous tour through Clive Cussler's outstanding collection of rare, classic, and antique automobiles. Featuring stunning color photographs by Ronnie Bramhall. Fans of Clive Cussler's bestselling Dirk Pitt series know that his hero has a soft spot for classic automobiles . . . and that the vehicles that appear in the novels are actually part of Cussler's own vast collection. Through beautiful color photographs and warm, informative commentary, fans of Cussler and Pitt can see fifty-six of them, crafted from 1906 to 1948, in all their glory, and learn about the history and acquisition of each car. The collection began with Cussler's purchase of a 1946 Ford Coupé for $400, and has since expanded to more than a hundred vehicles, many of which are rare and striking examples of their model, design, or coach-work. There's the 1918 Cadillac V-8 Sport Phaeton with early coachwork by Harley earl, before he became an automotive designer for General Motors; the 1937 Cord 812 SC Berline, one of only four known to exist today; and the 1913 Marmon Model 32 Touring that in the 1950s was used to chauffeur such stars as Grace Kelly and Agnes Moorehead. The beauty and elegance of these classic automobiles, combined with the astonishing functionality that allows many of them to cruise the highways with ease alongside modern cars, give proof to Cussler's belief that they are no less than 'masterworks of mechanical art.'

When Detective Isaac Bell's mentor is shot, the turn-of-the-century investigator traces the attack from a booze-smuggling operation back to a team of international saboteurs in this #1 New York Times–bestselling series. It is 1920, and both Prohibition and bootlegging are in full swing. When Isaac Bell’s boss and lifelong friend Joseph Van Dorn is shot and nearly killed while leading the high-speed chase of a rum-running vessel, Bell swears to him that he will hunt down the men responsible. But Bell doesn’t know what he is getting into. When a witness to Van Dorn’s shooting is executed in a ruthlessly efficient manner invented by the Russian secret police, it becomes clear that these are no ordinary criminals. In a trail that leads from the ravages of post-World-War-I Europe to the speakeasies of New York, to the lawless streets of Detroit and Florida’s lavish beachside resorts, Isaac tracks the footsteps of a enterprise more ingenious and far-reaching than any he has ever known. For this is no mere bootlegging operation, but a powerful international organization with the very downfall of America in its sights . . .
