Detective Isaac Bell returns in the remarkable new adventure in the number-one New York Times best-selling series.
It is 1902, and a bright, inexperienced young man named Isaac Bell, only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency, has an urgent message for his boss. Hired to hunt for radical unionist saboteurs in the coal mines, he is witness to a terrible accident that makes him think that something else is going on, that provocateurs are at work and bigger stakes are in play.
Little does he know just how big they are. Given exactly one week to prove his case, Bell quickly finds himself pitted against two of the most ruthless opponents he has ever known, men of staggering ambition and cold-bloodedness...who are not about to let some wet-behind-the-ears detective stand in their way.

Excellent, really enjoyed this one.
The striker does very well against the other Cussler books, it's probably the best Isaac bell book so far.
The Issac Bell character, especially with Brik's performance really works well. The story doesn't often leave Bell so you don't really get enough time to form any strong connections with anyone else.
It's asking me what my favourite scene is, but that would surely be spoiling it.
The Wrecker and The Theif are both great, after that I felt the series was getting a bit tired, this one goes back in time to the early part of Bell's career, and it's just what these books needed!
Most of the hero's in adventure books (apart from Bond) grow old and end up being the president, and it gets well boring. Issac was heading that way, so it's great to go back to the whippersnapper days.
What a great addition to the Issac Bell series!
Clive Cussler keeps this series fresh and exciting with another great addition to the Issac Bell series ... I can't put any of the books in this series in any particular favorite order as they all are wicked entertaining ... Scott Brick does it again too - he is a fabulous reader ... this book is set before the first book in the series, "The Chase", and gives us a look at Issac Bell in his early years as a detective but I would not recommend reading the series out of order if you plan to read the entire series ... thanks Clive Cussler & Justin Scott for another hang on to the seat of your pants fun book!
