The search for a legendary automobile threatens the careers and lives of husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo in this thrilling new adventure in Clive Cussler’s bestselling series.
In 1906, a groundbreaking Rolls-Royce prototype known as the Gray Ghost vanishes from the streets of Manchester, England, and it is only the lucky intervention of an American detective named Isaac Bell that prevents it from being lost forever. Not even he can save the good name of Jonathan Payton, however, the man wrongly blamed for the theft, and more than a hundred years later, it is his grandson who turns to Sam and Remi Fargo to help prove his grandfather’s innocence.
But there is even more at stake than any of them know. For the car has vanished again, and in it is an object so rare that it has the capacity to change lives. Men with everything to gain and a great deal to lose have a desperate plan to find it–and if anybody gets in their way? They have a plan for that, too.

Remi and Sam Fargo visit the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance antique auto show where they notice a young man near Sam’s age taking particular attention to them.
It turns out that Sam and Oliver are distant cousins and Oliver is from a noble line in England. They soon discover that in addition to the love of antique automobiles Oliver and his grandfather Albert are in need of help.Help could come in the form of a loan, but that sort of help does not solve a mystery. Soon they find themselves embroiled in an adventure that is as deadly as it is exciting.
I love the way they interweave another Clive Cussler character, Issac Bell, into the story. This leads not only to an exciting adventure for Remi and Sam, it also provides a mini adventure for Issac Bell.
You won’t be disappointed with “The Gray Ghost” a must read for all Clive Cussler and Robin Burcell fans.
