From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
In a remote Himalayan monastery, an ancient Doomsday instrument vanishing from its inner sanctum leads to a murder investigation amidst the maiden trans-Atlantic voyage of the greatest ocean liner ever built. Agent Prendergast and Constance Green must uncover the mystery behind the bizarre killings of the passengers and the crew in order to retrieve an object that will be sure to destroy every civilization on Earth.
Though it is the new installment of the Agent Prendergast series, this novel can be read on its own due to its galloping plot and freshly-minted cast of characters (if it was a cereal, it would have a sunburst shape around the words "Now with All-New Characters!")
