Blackwell North Amer
During the maiden voyage of the Lusitania, George Porter Dillman, an American, and Genevieve Masefield, a beautiful Englishwoman, proved to be such an effective crime-fighting team that they joined forces in the service of the Cunard Line. Now Dillman and Genevieve are back in Liverpool to embark on the first voyage of the Mauretania.
Again working undercover as private detectives, the two mingle effortlessly among the ship's other passengers, Genevieve making friends easily in the first-class quarters and Dillman keeping his eye on things in second class and steerage. Soon after it leaves port, the vessel is battered unmercifully by severe weather that confines the passengers to their cabins. Then one of the passengers vanishes, complicating already unpleasant circumstances.
Fearing that the man was swept overboard in the storm, Dillman and Genevieve soon come to wonder if his disappearance is in any way linked to the presence on board of a record shipment of gold bullion - twelve tons in all - sent from the Bank of England.
