Something different from Clive Cussler, which is a good thing - NUMA and Dirk were getting a bit repetitive. This book is slightly historical, and rail based - a very enjoyable read.

As usual Cussler's writing grabs you.

Not like his usual sea faring tales but just as good if not better. I love the way you are put right into it, experiencing it all first hand.I had the wind blowing in my face during the Case in the locomobile!

I certainly would like to read more accounts on the adventures of Mr. Bell.

Murder mystery, romance, history--this book has a little bit of everything. Cussler continues to entertain with his style and character development. This story will keep you hooked until the very end.

Although this wasn't a Dirk Pitt, Juan Cabrillo, or Kurt Austin book from Cussler, it still held my attention from start to finish. I enjoyed reading about Isaac Bell and his story. A book any Cussler fan should read.

I really enjoyed this book. The story is woven into historical details making it very interesting. It was the first Clive Cussler book I've read. It's one of those books that starts with an unfinished view of the ending and leaves you wondering what that is all about. Then it takes you back 40 years to to when it all started. Someone is robbing banks and getting away without a trace because he kills any witnesses. He uses disguises and seems to magically disappear when it seems there is no way out of town that isn't being searched. Issac Bell is the keen eyed detective that is called in to catch the "butcher bandit".

For Clive Cussler fans this is a slight departure. It is set in the early 1900s with a different hero. As usual, exciting, interesting, and historically acurate.

A unique Cussler book with a different type of story. I have read all of his books and this is one of the best.
