“A colorful, action-packed tale filled with sinister doings and plenty of good old-fashioned heroics . . . An entertaining ride” set in colonial times (Criminal Element).
In the winter of 1703, Matthew Corbett’s Manhattan neighborhood is shaken by explosions—and Matthew discovers his old nemesis, Professor Fell, will do anything he can to capture Matthew’s attention and obtain his services as a professional problem solver. As a result, Matthew travels from New York to Pendulum Island in the distant Bermudas, taking on various opponents in his quest to come face-to-face with the murderous and manipulative criminal mastermind . . .
