Good, but not the best. I have really enjoyed the Isaac Bell adventures, the way historical events and lifestyles are mixed in to the stories are fascinating. My only complaint (hence the 4 stars and as others have noted) is that America's greatest detective missed some major things that were right under his nose. Scott Brick as always delivered an excellent performance. Overall it's still a great adventure and worthy of a read.
The Issac Bell series is the best thing to come out of Cussler since the early days of Dirk Pitt. These stories are just great for my long commutes. I looked forward to this for months and I was just thrilled when it came out. Planes, trains and automobiles! In my opinion Cussler is better at landlubber novels than he is at sea novels. But that's just me. As usual Scott Brick is outstanding. He could read the phone book and keep me listening.
