Author: Clive Cussler, Justin Scott
In The Chase, Clive Cussler introduced an electrifying new hero, the tall, lean, no-nonsense detective Isaac Bell, who, driven by his sense of justice, travels early-twentieth-century America pursuing thieves and killers . . . and sometimes criminals much worse. — It is 1907, a year of financial panic and labor unrest.

I really enjoyed this one! I think Isaac Bell is becoming one of my favorite Cussler characters. As much as I enjoyed The Chase, I think I liked this one even more. Part of this was because some of the story took place in Ogden, Utah - my home town. Utah is a predominantly Mormon state, however, Ogden was a hub of the rail industry from when the golden spike was driven in 1869 to the 1940s and WWII. Railroad and military men gathered in Ogden and the result was a definite non-Mormon atmosphere of bars and brothels. This is detailed very well in The Wrecker. The story itself was a great actioner and quite enjoyable. The only complaint was that I didn't quite understand why Bell was unable to recognize the Wrecker from the drawing that had circulated when the Wrecker boarded the train in Ogden. Two other Van Horn agents did recognize him from the drawing and ended up dead in the Ogden back alleys. Otherwise, I enjoyed this one immensely and am looking forward to the next Isaac Bell story: The Spy, which will be published in June.

This was a book chosen to be read by my book club. It was OK, not my favorite genre. My husband likes Clive, though, and will enjoy this book as he is a model train enthusiast.

I like Cussler's new protaganist Issac Bell. The action starts right away and is fast paced until the last page. The bad guys are ruthless and very smart, but not as smart at Issac. It's a nice get a way book.

This was typical Cussler. Great non-stop action. Excellent steam locomotive descriptions and well developed characters. A great read.
