Alors qu’il s’apprête enfin à célébrer son mariage à bord du paquebot Mauretania, Isaac Bell vole au secours de deux hommes agressés en pleine nuit : des scientifiques, le professeur Beiderbecke et son jeune assistant Clyde Lynds, peu enclins à se confier au brillant détective de l’agence Van Dorn. Quelques jours plus tard, le professeur est retrouvé à l’agonie, enfermé dans une malle. Dès lors, Clyde Lynds n’a d’autre choix que de se confier à Isaac Bell s’il veut garder la vie sauve et protéger leur invention des convoitises qu’elle suscite...

Dans l’ombre, le mystérieux acrobate, et derrière lui le deuxième Reich, semblent prêts à tout pour mettre la main sur ce formidable outil de propagande...
