Publisher's Summary

Detective Isaac Bell returns in the remarkable new adventure in the number-one New York Times best-selling series.

It is 1902, and a bright, inexperienced young man named Isaac Bell, only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency, has an urgent message for his boss. Hired to hunt for radical unionist saboteurs in the coal mines, he is witness to a terrible accident that makes him think that something else is going on, that provocateurs are at work and bigger stakes are in play.

Little does he know just how big they are. Given exactly one week to prove his case, Bell quickly finds himself pitted against two of the most ruthless opponents he has ever known, men of staggering ambition and cold-bloodedness...who are not about to let some wet-behind-the-ears detective stand in their way.

    "Disappointing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I do like the Isaac Bell Series, but this book is slow and not up to the caliber of the other books in the series.


    Has The Striker turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I will try another, but I will move onto another series for now.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I do like the series set in the historical past


    Any additional comments?

    I do like the Isaac Bell Series, but this book is slow and not up to the caliber of the other books in the series.

    "Not your typical Cussler"
    Would you listen to The Striker again? Why?

    I really could not wait for it to be over.... I did not read the intro very well... Too much Atlas Shruged in it. Read by the same guy... OUCH


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    OK


    Which scene was your favorite?

    wasnt one


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no wait... the office scene where he uses the steam statue...


    Any additional comments?

    Read what it is about and do not just go for the authur...

    "Another good Cussler story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I have already recommended it because it is the style of book that both of us read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Isaac Bell is a likable hero in the depth of historic trauma. His thinking and decisions are intriguing.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick is one of the best readers of audiobooks. He uses several voices to indicate different characters keeping the pace of the story going without having to say the name.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No idea

    "Boring"
    What would have made The Striker better?

    Seems to be just a re-tread of the Isaac Bell series.


    What was most disappointing about Clive Cussler and Justin Scott ’s story?

    It drones on and on and on and on.....


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. As always, Brick is a good performer. However, even his reading cannot save this one.


    What character would you cut from The Striker?

    What sort of question is this? The boring story doesn't get fixed by cutting a character.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't normally write reviews; however, hate to see someone else waste a credit on this incredibly boring book.

    "A little difficult to follow"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm a daily audible listener. I do listen mostly for enjoyment and because I listen often while I exercise I will admit that my mind does wander sometimes. That said, however, I found this book a bit difficult to follow. I can truthfully say that I was hoping the book would end so I could get on to something more enjoyable. Great reading performance, but I thought the story was weak and hard to follow.
