Thoroughly enjoyed the story and could hardly put it down.
Have no reservations in recommending this audio book.
I loved it I read a few Clive Cussler books in the past when I was younger but couldn't finish them due to reading print difficulties. but listing to it painted it a picture in my mind almost like a movie I could fallow every word. as if i was standing next to him the whole time.
I really enjoyed the historical details of the trains, automobiles, and cities. There were, however, parts of the plot that knocked me out of the story either through their incredible coincidence or by stretching by ability to suspend disbelief and accept the plot of the book. I liked the idea that a banker was robbing banks to fund his own bank and then could not stop because of the thrill. Overall I thought the book was good but I'm not sure I'll continue the series.
This was a fast paced book that just kept building steam until the climatic final battle. The tone and speed of the book reminded of Cussler's early Dirk Pitt novels. Over all it reminded me why I started reading Cussler's books in the first place.
The story revolves around trains and the story picks up speed as it goes. Building up so that the reader is kept on the edge of his or her seat.
Over all this is a great book with a story that will keep you hooked and leave you wanting to stay in your car to finish it.
I wanted to like this book if, for no other reason, than it's narrated by Scott Brick.. but I found myself speeding up the narration towards the end to "just get it over with". There are some interesting aspects to the story, and most of the characters are wonderfully brought to life, however, the positive parts are overshadowed by a hero who is unrealistically lucky and able to make inexplicable leaps to the correct conclusions. An occasional coincidence or miracle in a story is fine, but when overused, turn a potentially great story into a boring one.
