I read this book very, very fast. I have read one book by this author and to be honest with you I got tired of the Superman image he gave the main characters. They could shot any weapon or drive any vehicle made by mankind. And the cars drive you nuts with the description of each one down to the last nut and bolt. But this book was not even close to that. It was most refreshing. He did tend to dwell on the car during the chase of the train but that was about it. The last 100 pages are really fast pace and exciting. After reading the book I went back and read the first chapter again and then it all fit into a nice tidy story. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fast pace read. I hope this author comes up with another of these early 20th century stories.

Very Disappointing

Having read all of the Cussler books, I couldn't wait for this one. Talk about a letdown! I could swear he didn't write this one or that he wrote it much, much earlier in his career. Jo B Charleston,SC

    The Chase

    The book was lent to me; good thing, as I would hate to have wasted good money on it.
    Having an interest in steam locomotives and antique cars, both of which feature prominently in the book, I slogged through it, but Mr. Cussler`s laughably inept writing style continuously intrudes on an otherwise interesting plot. The cliches come hot and heavy and the dialogue produces almost non-stop winces of disbelief.
    Now, having said that, Mr. Cussler seems to have a sufficiently large fan base to have made him millions over the years. He has amassed an antique car collection of sufficient magnitude to have allowed him to open his own museum, for which he finds it necessary to charge admission. Odd.
    I have nothing against "garbage fiction"; find it enjoyable to intersperse the occasional "summer reading" thriller with more serious stuff but this one was an annoying waste of time.
