But then the Grey Ghost is stolen once again - this time from right under the noses of the investigating Fargos.
And the Viscount vanishes too.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
If you like action-packed adventure, you’ll love The Grey Ghost, a rollicking story of murder, hidden treasure and devastating wartime secrets. Clive Cussler teams up with former police officer Robin Burcell to bring back treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo—who embark on a mission to find a legendary turn-of-the-century automobile, clear the name of an accused murderer, and recover a cache of valuables. With its relentless pace and vibrant characters, this thriller made us lose track of time as we flew to the last page.
Bestsellers Cussler and Burcell's refreshing 10th Sam and Remi Fargo adventure (after 2017's The Romanov Ransom) benefits from a clever flashback device. In 1906, Isaac Bell, the hero of the Cussler series featuring the men and women of the Van Dorn Detective Agency, apprehends a group of thieves who have stolen $1 million and a prototype Rolls Royce known as the Gray Ghost. In the present day, the same car is again stolen, and treasure hunters Sam and Remi agree to search for the immensely valuable car for two reasons: this sort of offbeat case is catnip to the Fargos, and the owner, Albert Payton, the seventh Viscount Wellswick, happens to be a distant relative of Sam's. Many of the clues to the Fargo investigation are found in a close reading of a journal kept by Albert's grandfather, the fifth viscount, detailing Bell's exciting 1906 case. This imaginative mix pumps new energy into a series that has shown signs of tiring in recent entries.
