What the Critics Say

"Cussler takes a breather from his several ongoing series with this historical thriller set in the western states, circa 1906. The U.S. government hires the renowned Van Dorn Detective Agency and its equally renowned lead agent, Isaac Bell, to capture the bank robber known as the Butcher Bandit....Once San Francisco gets hit by the 1906 earthquake and the principals climb aboard a pair of fire-breathing locomotives, the novel cranks up a head of steam and some high-speed thrills." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Scott Brick is one of the best"

    The combination of a Cussler barb burner and the outstanding performance of Scott Brick is unbeatable. I have listen to the series three times and I feel I will never stop listening to them.

    "As usual a very convincing story."

    What's not to love about Clive Cussler and Scott brick! It takes a really good story and adds a wonderful narrator so you can't lose reading those combinations!

    "Another Great Series by Clive Cussler"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Scott Brick does an outstanding job of bringing the book to life. His accents for the different characters really let you visualize and identify with the different personality. Clive Cussler add unique specific details that let you see exactly what is the scene in. He adds nuances which help you fill in all the gaps. AAAA+++

    "Good Yarn"

    While there were a few places the story stretched out a bit overall it was a good yarn and full of the details that are Cussler's style. All the loose ends were neatly tied up. The narration was excellent, easy to listen to, and well paced.

    "Change of pace for me...quite enjoyable!"

    This book, and the writing style of Cussler, is quite a change of pace from what I usually read. That being said, I quite enjoyed this book. The story is set at the turn of the 20th Century, and I loved the quaint, slow-paced setting. The characters were believable, and fairly well developed. I didn't find myself becoming overly attached or invested in any of them, other than the possible exception of the main protagonist, Mr. Bell. However, the story line was quite witty and entertaining.

    The narrator nearly caused me to quit this book after a few short hours. His style is very over-dramatic (think J. Peterman from Seinfeld), but once I got a little more "in tune" with it I actually began to enjoy it for this style of book. Overall a good experience, and I am intrigued enough to venture further into the Bell series.
