Publisher's Summary

A no-nonsense detective is on the trail of the sharpest and deadliest criminal mind he has ever encountered: a serial robber who murders any and all witnesses in cold-blood.

©2007 Clive Cussler; (P)2007 Penguin

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)

    "Great book and narration, felt like I was there."

    Listened to this book on a road trip and had to continue after I completed my trip. What a story and narration. Thanks

    Story
    "The butcher bandit kept me entranced."

    The preamble of a locomotive salvage is attention getting and invites speculation. The story line build logically and smoothly but with twists that refocus expectations.

    Another excellent job by Scott Brick.

    "This is a good book if you like Cussler's style"

    It is unfair to criticize a book because one doesn't like the author's style, but different people have different tastes. I will readily admit that this could be a good book for someone else, but it was not for me. On the contrary, I had a hard time finishing it. The background of the story is very well researched, as usual by this author, and the details regarding vehicles, customs and locales are excellent. The descriptions of events in San Francisco are fascinating. But then, there is the story. I just can't fathom why such a good backdrop had to be spoiled by this turn of the century super hero surrounded by beautiful ladies fighting a horrible bad guy while accomplishing incredible feats. The performer did a good job but added to the Sunday matinee effect. Sorry Mr. Cussler, I tried. I just wish you would use your historical research genius to produce a more serious work one day. I will buy it.

    "Long"

    But could've been about half as long and the narrators voice is all sounded pretty much the same

    "Outstanding, hard to stop listening"

    This is one of Clives best. It was hard not to shut it off. I haven't read or listened to any of his books I didn't like. I look forward to the next.

    "Melodramatic"

    The narration was a little melodramatic for my taste. But the plot was good, and the inclusion of historic events adds an interesting element.

    "GRIPPING STORY"

    For someone who likes computers or SCI-FI in his stories I found this very engaging.

    "so predictable and corny dialogue"

    I used to listen to the Dirk Pitt novels by Clive Cussler, which were fun. But this book is embarrassing. I don't even know why I finished it. The only interesting part was some of the history from 1906 and discussion of some of the "technology" of the age...otherwise, its a waste of time.

    "Fast moving and entertaining"

    I needed this after coming off a slow boring book. I listened to this as often as I could which is how I rate books. If I don't want to stop and turn it on as soon as I can, it's a fiver.

    Story
    "I was wrong about Brick"

    I am about 3/4 of the way through the book and have liked the story so far. Before I purchased it however, I was confused about the negative reviews on Mr. Brick's narration. I have always liked his narration on previous books; even LOVED it on occasion. I thought the negative reviewers were just wrong. Unfortunately, they are correct and I was wrong. What is he thinking? It's like he chose his inflection before reading the sentence and will not alter to fit the meaning of the sentence. It is so irritating, I thought about stopping and returning the book. I haven't because the story is quite good. I can't imagine why Mr. Cussler continues to use him. IRRITATING!!
