An earthquake strikes. A prince and the engineer who loves him are missing. But is it disaster—or foul play?
Hot on the trail of their missing father, Daisy and Freddie Linden step off the airship Iris in San Francisco de Asis. At the moment they discover their best clue to Papa’s whereabouts, an earthquake levels the city—and a disaster is the best time for a political coup.
