Description

The first novel in a brand-new alternate history series where Teddy Roosevelt is president for a second time right before WWI breaks out, and on his side is the Black Chamber, a secret spy network watching America's back. In 1912, just months before the election, President Taft dies suddenly, and Teddy Roosevelt wastes no time in grabbing power as he wins another term as president. By force of will, he ushers the United States into a new, progressive era with the help of the Black Chamber the mysterious spy organization, watching his back. Luz O'Malley--a brilliant, deadly, and young Cuban Irish American agent of the Black Chamber--heads to Germany. She's on a luxury airship swarming with agents of every power on earth, as well as conspirators from the Mexican Revolutionary Party and the sinister underground of the reborn Ku Klux Klan, yet none know her true identity. Her anonymity will be essential as she strives to gain the secrets of Project Loki, an alarming German plan that Roosevelt fears will drag the U.S. into a world war. To gather this intelligence, Luz will have to deceive the handsome yet ruthless Baron Horst von Duckler. She, along with naive Irish-American Ciara Whelan, has to get this vital information back to the U.S.--or millions of lives will be lost.show more

Review quote

Praise for Black Chamber "A rollicking spy thriller set in a familiar WW1, but with a 'what might have been' America racing to cope with a far deadlier, more desperate Germany."--Taylor Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of River of Bones "A slam-bang spy thriller with an engaging female protagonist."--David Drake, author of Death's Bright Day "Nobody carries a bigger stick in the alternate-history game than S. M. Stirling. As always, he comes up with inventive twists that keep your mind racing and the pages turning. Bravo!"--Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Quantum Night "Once again one of the best story-tellers in the world takes you on a wonderful ride. Great tale, great characters ...love it."--David Crosby, of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash "The nice thing about getting a Steve Stirling book in the mail is that you know for a few hours you can fly on dreams of wonder, travelling to a world so much more than this angry reality."--John Ringo, author of Under a Graveyard Sky "It's a great feeling being in the hands of an alternate history master. Black Chamber is a wonderfully fun transcontinental spy romp, and a great beginning to a new series."--Django Wexler, author of The Infernal Battalionshow more
