May 7, 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Lusitania, the event that catalyzed the United States involvement in World War I. Though the ship s sinking has guaranteed it a place in our history textbooks, the conspiracy behind it remains shrouded in mystery. Did the British Navy have advance knowledge of the attack? Was the attack prevent- able? Was the ship deliberately put at risk?
While the answers to these questions may be lost forever in time, there is no shortage of theories as to what really led to the German attack on the Greyhound of the Seas. Bringing to life such influential historical characters as Nikola Tesla, Mark Twain, and Winston Churchill, as well as a host of fascinating characters created by the author, this gripping novel delves deeply into one of the greatest unsolved conspiracies in history and offers a unique look at what secrets might still be lurking in the ship s dark past.
The Lusitania Conspiracy follows Tesla, perhaps the most brilliant scientist who has ever lived, as he endeavors to make the world a better place through his groundbreaking work with radar and tonal oscillation. But the Allied forces have other plans for Tesla s inventions namely, a super weapon that would bring Germany to its knees and ensure the Allies victory in the so-called war to end all wars.
As imaginative as he was scientific, Tesla is joined in his never-ending quest to remain a force for good by his rev- erent assistant, Li Yín Huo , who shares his boss s quick wit and penchant for adventure. Tesla s unparalleled intellect also allows him the ability to consort with his deceased best friend, Mark Twain. Along the way, Twain advises Tesla from beyond the grave, often providing the insight and courage that Tesla needs in order to persevere.
Once aboard the Lusitania, Tesla and Li find themselves tangled in a web of intrigue, where nothing is as it seems and no one is to be trusted. History and science mingle with Ron Walters fantastical conjecture to create this fast-paced tale, complete with romance, deception, and all the other staples of a classic adventure.
