Reviews

Praise for the Isaac Bell Adventures:

"Bell is a superb action hero who moves elegantly and lethally through the period." --"Library Journal"

"Bell just keeps getting more interesting. Cussler is turning out some of his best work." --"Booklist"

Praise for THE STRIKER

"Fans of the Isaac Bell series will note the same exciting storytelling and vivid early twentieth-century setting, but they'll also note something different: even though it's set only four years earlier than the first Bell novel (2008's "The Chase"), the book features a much different Isaac: younger, more impetuous, less calmly analytical . . . this origin story (every hero needs one) will give Bell's fans a fresh look at their favorite private investigator."--"Booklist "

Praise for THE STRIKER

"[Might] be the best yet in the series by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott . . . The history of the unions in early 20th-century America along with the hazardous working conditions of the coal mines would be fascinating reading. Add a James Bond style flair with sabotage and villainy and the end result is a great action thriller."--"Associated Press"

In 1902, Van Dorn detective Isaac Bell is hired to investigate a series of coal-mining accidents that have led to violent conflict between labor and management. The miners are working in dangerous, primitive conditions, and a fledgling union is trying to improve their circumstances while railroad tycoons and mine owners resist any efforts to reduce hazards and increase the miners' pay. Bell discovers that management is willing to do just about anything-including murder-to preserve their profits. Isaac Bell doesn't have the spectacular globe-trotting adventures of other Cussler (Poseidon's Arrow) protagonists such as Dirk Pitt or the Fargos, but the series more than makes up for it with careful plotting, good writing, and believable characters. Longtime narrator of Cussler audiobooks Scott Brick is flawless in his delivery and maintains the suspense from the spectacular mine accident that begins the book to the nail-biting finish that finds Bell fighting for his life.
