I haven't quite finished the latest Isaac Bell venture, but I am so loving it. The historical aspect is particularly intriguing, and the return to one of my favorite Cussler characters is a joy. The plot is developing very nicely, and I can't wait to reach the inevitably fascinating conclusion. A must-read for airplane buffs.

no way

let's see. An e-book has no paper, ink, bindings, etc., but costs more than a book that does! outrageous! electrons must be in short supply. I'll wait for the library. SO much for switching to the "inexpensive" electronic format.

    Disappointed

    The sequel to the other three Clive Cussler books is quite a disappointment for me because all the other ones were smash hits while this one is just plain boring. Seriously? Cussler could have done much better knowing he produced a LOT of good ones, I really hope the next one would be much more okay.

    Far from Cussler's best

    More than a little beyond believable. Historically inaccurate.

    Enjoyable - But not up to Standard of Books 1-3 in the Series

    This was a quick read, but the mystery was not as complex, detailed or the book as long as Books 1-3 in the Isaac Bell series. I waited for months for this one - and was done in like 2 days. Disappointed - not quite up to Cussler standards. Will hope for better things in Book 5 !!

    Seriously?

    What happened? The excitement of having a follow up book after I read the first three was killing me then when I finally got hold of the book and read it I did not like what I read. More please!

    wait till price drops!

    This book series got off to a good start but has traveled downhill quickly. This book had a great chance to tell a good story that hasn't been told in many years and in my recollection never in the United States. It apparently was written hastily and without much forethought to fight scenes and other points of entrigue. I could go on and on but I will forbear.
