Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

As always in this series, the novel is very exciting, with excellent pacing and some very well-drawn characters. Cussler is a perennial A-lister, popularity-wise, and his Isaac Bell novels are the pick of his prodigious litter. Booklist
The seventh page-turner featuring indomitable detective Isaac Bell—great fun from one of the better Cussler series. Kirkus Reviews
Cussler and Scott have written another wonderful page-turner. This is historical action-adventure fiction at its rip-roaring best! Library Journal (starred review)
The Isaac Bell series continues to tell compelling stories. Tidbits of history are sprinkled throughout the narrative, and it’s fun to filter out fictional characters and events from historical facts. Associated Press
This latest Bell thriller combines a vivid historical environment with a top-notch story and enjoyable, realistic characters. Bell, the detective whose nimble intellect often gets him out of tight situations, is one of Cussler’s most engaging protagonists, and the series...remains fresh and exciting — Booklist   “Fascinating and suspenseful plot
Cussler has written another wonderful historical thriller.The action is fast and thoroughly enjoyable. Library Journal
