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.

Fantastic story. Even better narration. Cussler never fails to spin an incredible story. Scott Brick puts life into narration beautifully, with emotion at the right moment and enthusiasm in the action and suspense.
Don't miss this one!
Perhaps I'm getting old.
I couldn't follow this meandering story.
Then realized I didn't care what happened
The performance was excellent but it couldn't save this story.
I finally thru in the towel with 21/2 hours remaining.
In my opinion, this was the best of the series so far. It was fun to learn more about Isaac bells backstory and seeing him when he was younger and less sure of himself.
While it's clearly a novel, The Striker gives an important look at one of the most formative periods in American history. Well written, and worth listening to several times.
I started over twice in the first chapter since I was not giving it the attention it deserved. I actually took the time to google and see the early turn of the century vehicles being referred to. Then I swallowed the hook and was still enjoying it to the very end.
Yet again, clive cussler brings a great issac bell story! This was my favorite one yet! Thank you audible for helping me to enjoy this fantastic story!!
