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.

Woo-Hoo. If you take Dirk Pitt's character and add a generous swirl of John Wayne, you end up with Isaac Bell, the hero of Cussler's latest. Set in the early 1900's it's complete with traps for bad guys, outwitting, and mad train chases. Fast read, fast paced story line, cool characters.

I loved this book. I hadn't read a good Western in years -- this book makes me want to read more. Definitely a change of pace for Cussler -- being set in the American west in 1906, but it still had all the action of a good Cussler story. Having grown up in Utah, this covered a lot of familiar territory from Arizona to San Francisco to Flathead Lake in Montana. The book also included many historical details and personages such as the San Francisco earthquake, Tesla and AC electricity, Jack London, etc. But the main attraction was the nonstop action in the pursuit of a vicious bank robber!

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.
