The Spy centers on the military in the years before America's entry into World War I. One of the premiere Battleship designers kills himself--or so it would seem. His daughter is absolutely convinced her Father did not commit suicide--and at this point, its no stretch to connect the dots that in fact he was murdered instead--but the question here is WHY? This is where the Van Dorn Detective Agency comes in. As Isaac begins the case, more deaths follow and evidence begins to mount that some inside 'Spy' is orchestrating everything...but to what end? Remember in 1908 we were quite a few years away from the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914 which sparked the origin of World War I, and wasn't until 1917 before America entered the War...so what is happening and why? More than one 'Spy' is featured here, too--which could've become rather convoluted quickly, but never fear, the course of 'The Spy' is charted and nobody goes off track. We see Germany involved, Britain and even the Japanese, and it ALL seems to be connected to some secret project involving American Dreadnought battleships.
