The newest entry in Clive Cussler's Isaac Bell series is, in my humble opinion, the best so far. Cussler and Scott depart from the railroad venue prominent in the first two novels and venture into the spy world of 1908. The subjects of naval architecture and warfare are subtly used to enhance an exciting story that ranges from New York's Hell's Kitchen all the way to Mare Island near Vallejo, California. The action is well paced and supports the story without overpowering it. The identity of the spy was a well kept secret and revealed so casually that I had to read the page twice to make sure I had actually read it correctly. Cussler's recent novels just seem to get better and better and this one is no exception. I can't wait for the next entry!

Great Series

The Issac Bell series is a great addition created by Clive Cussler and his co-writer Justin Scott. I really like that it takes back in the early 20th century with all its ruggedness.

    I have read at least a dozen Clive Cussler books, including three isaac Bells. I obviously enjoyed the, or I wouldn't have rad so many. But this is one of the worst books ihave ever read, or any author. For one thing, it was much too technical. But the main reason I hated it, was the violence. Violence that was gruesome. Since I read #4 before this (#3), I'm hoping that the authors will tone it down in the future.

    Great bedtime reading - if you need help getting to sleep

    I've like every other Cussler book I've read, but found this one incredibly boring. By the end, I didn't care at all who the perpetrator was or how he would be caught. It droned on endlessly. As my nighttime reading though, I can say it did a good job of helping me get to sleep.
