The Tenth Witness

An Henri Poincaré Mystery

The Henri Poincaré Mysteries: Book #2


The Tenth Witness,a prequel to the award-winning All CryChaos, is the tale of a man upended: a twenty-eight-year-old who rejects abrilliant career in engineering for a dark, uncertain one in internationalpolice work.

Onthe night of October 9, 1799, the frigate HMS Lutine broke apart on the shoals of the Frisian Islands off theDutch coast. When the insurer Lloyds of London paid on the wreck, it tookownership and planned expeditions to recoup the lost millions in gold andsilver. Nearly two hundred years later, after a series of largely failedsalvage operations, Lloyds tries again—this time on the strength of newtechnologies and a strategy devised by the gifted young engineer HenriPoincaré.

Itis late spring 1978, and Poincaré has worked nearly to exhaustion preparing forthe Lutine dive. Before the salvage season begins, however, he takes arare holiday: a hike at low tide across the vast, muddy flats of the WaddenSea. His guide is Liesel Kraus, who is smart, able, appealing—and troubled. Sheand her brother Anselm are haunted by a violenthistory that generates both rage and, as the directors of Kraus Steel, an enormous, corrupting wealth. The closerPoincaré draws to Liesel and Anselm, the more warped life becomes until, finally, loveand a death threat compel him to investigate what no one else will—aside fromInterpol. It seems that pain as well as treasure can be dredged up from thepast to reshape the present.
