Description

A sleepy American town is woken up in the middle of the night by horrifying noises. Terror-stricken citizens claim to have heard unexplained rumblings and there are reports of bright lights emanating from a nearby mountain.

As the head police inspector in Washington DC John Strock is assigned to investigate the mysterious happenings. He sets out on the case, having no idea what shocking secrets will be discovered.

During his investigation, reports of other inexplicable events around the country start to come to light. Unusual boats, fast cars and flying machines all play a part in the mystery as it unfolds. Strock starts to suspect that all these incidents are connected in some way, and strives to get to the bottom of it.

Will he succeed in his quest? Or will the Master of the World live up to his name?




About the Author
Jules Verne was born on February 8, 1828, in France. Growing up near a river, the constant sight of ships sparked his interest in travel. As a young man, Verne even tried to run away and become a cabin boy. Fortunately, his father caught him, and soon Verne was off to study law in Paris. While there, Verne escaped the boredom of his studies by writing stories. When his father found out about this hobby, he stopped sending money for school. Verne started selling his stories, many of which became popular, including 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in 1870. Before he died in 1905, the author bought a boat and sailed around Europe.



Dale was born and raised in Sheffield England. After graduating from college, he worked for a small regional newspaper before migrating to the US. Working on training videos, he soon realized the best parts were those that were chopped out. Dale has written screenplays and numerous short stories.
