Young Nate Fuller is ready for adventure as he boards the Lusitania, the biggest, grandest ocean liner ever to sail the seas, in this follow-up to Danger in the Dark—the first Houdini and Nate mystery for readers 9 to 12. Nate is hoping to sharpen his detective skills with some help from his mentor Harry Houdini, and maybe even to rub elbows with Teddy Roosevelt. All looks to be smooth sailing, until a cunning would-be killer tries to assassinate the former president. As the waters become choppier, Nate and Houdini race to find and foil their suspect before he makes a second attempt.
