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

    Absolutely terrible

    The story was compelling, but this is a horribly written book. I have a really hard time believing that Clive Cussler even proofed this, much less wrote it. I'm sorry I wasted my money.

    Just okay

    The Chase by Clive Cussler is a very different endeavor for him. I have been reading Cussler novels since the mid seventies, starting with Raise the Titanic I own every book and movie-so far. This one just did not bite me like the others, even though I do like the time period 'Early 1900¿s'. As always historically he is correct with his facts. This story seems juvenile ¿sorry. I will give it two stars, one because it¿s a Cussler, and one for trying something different. It is still worth a read!

    Confused!

    I'm finding this a very fast read. However, keep stumbling on apparent inconsistencies. Like the bank guard in the Salt Lake city bank. Two different guns on two different days? Ok, it's a different guard. How about Jackie Ruggles? on p 86 he has 'curly light brown hair' and on p87 he has 'unruly red hair.'

    cussler's worst ever

    I've read them all and usually speed through them and can't wait for the next one. This one was difficult to get through. Not because of the prose, but because it was so bad. I'm not looking forward to any more like this. This was pure bad.
