In 1909 the steamship SS Waratah and its two hundred passengers and crew hit a storm and vanished without trace - never to be found . . .
Over a hundred years later, Kurt Austin barely survives a failed rescue aboard a sinking yacht, but is convinced one of the lost passengers may not have gone down with the boat.
Digging a little deeper into this mystery, Kurt finds evidence of other leading scientists who have recently vanished. Who is behind these disappearances? And what do they want?
From Monaco to North Korea and Madagascar, Kurt and the NUMA team piece together clues that link the loss of a steamship a century ago with a deadly conspiracy to bring the world to its knees.
But are they too late to stop it?
