Publisher's Summary

Detective Isaac Bell returns in the extraordinary new adventure in The New York Times' best-selling series.
It is 1920, and both Prohibition and bootlegging are in full swing. When Isaac Bell’s boss and lifelong friend Joseph Van Dorn is shot and nearly killed leading the high-speed chase of a rum-running vessel, Bell swears to him that he will hunt down the lawbreakers, but he doesn’t know what he is getting into. When a witness to Van Dorn’s shooting is executed in a ruthlessly efficient manner invented by the Russian secret police, it becomes clear that these are no ordinary criminals. Bell is up against a team of Bolshevik assassins and saboteurs - and they are intent on overthrowing the government of the United States.

You will not be disappointed in this one!

I found this a fun fast listen, the look inside what it must have been like during prohibition was fun. (If you are a fan of Clive Cussler books you will enjoy this,)
Me and my husband listened to this book together and you can not get a more entertaining snow day adventure than this.

Another solid offering in the Isaac Bell series

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

I like Scott Brick's narration better than some folks. I think some find him a little too melodramatic. I find if I listen to him at a faster speed it makes it a much more enjoyable listen.


Any additional comments?

Takes place during Prohibition and examines the complete disregard many had for that particular law, and how *gangsters* got rich because of it.

A typical Cussler yarn, but from me that's a compliment. The historical setting is interesting as well.

An easy listen, but worth it.
