A tale of assassination, murder & terrorism. Can the Globetrotters uncover a terrifying Commonist plot?
As the Thames ices over and the country grinds to a halt, a scientist is found murdered in the north of London, and the globetrotters are called in to investigate the theft of a mysterious device. What they find is a conspiracy that brings the British Empire to the brink of war!

This time, the globetrotters uncover assassination, murder, and terrorist atrocities reaching to the highest levels of society.
But is everything as it seems? What lies behind the Commonists’ actions, and the disappearance of Nikolai Fyodorov, the mysterious Cosmist leader, in the distant Pamir Mountains? Can the globetrotters solve the mystery before war consumes the Empire?
