I found this entry in the Isaac Bell series to be a little disappointing after really enjoying the first 3 books - especially "The Wrecker." I thought the characters in "The Race" were not very well developed and the plot was somewhat lacking. Although Cussler and Scott gave a lot of detail about aeronautics in the early days of flying, the thrill of being able to fly in these early days did not really come across. Some of the terminology that was used also got to be a little repetitive including the term "mechanician" instead of "mechanic." This is probably the correct terminology used in 1910 but it got to be a little annoying. Also, I didn't think Isaac Bell used his deductive reasoning very well in this story -- I would think he would have been able to easily see through the disguise of Marco Celere. Anyway, I still enjoy the Bell series and will probably read the next one when it comes out.

Detective Issac Bell takes to the skies! "It is 1910, the age of flying machines is still in its infancy, and newspaper publisher Preston Whiteway is offering $50,000 for the first daring aviator to cross America in less than fifty days. He is even sponsoring one of the prime candidates-an intrepid aviatrix names Josephine Frost-and that's where Bell, chief investigator for the Van Dorn Detective Agency, comes in."
