Clive Cussler has been one of my top five favorite authors for a long time now. Since Isaac Bell came along, he is one of my top ten fictional characters. The addition of a co-writer has not created any diminution of my opinion. This installment of Bell’s saga was long anticipated, and does not disappoint. The characterization of Bell is consistent with the other novels. Lord knows the action is nonstop. I don’t do spoilers in a review, but I will comment on Cussler’s trademark contemporary bookends. His matching Prologue and Epilogue are clever, and appropriate. In them, he links his first lead character, Dirk Pitt the hero of “Raise the Titanic “ with this latest opus featuring his newest hero,, Isaac Bell. By mentioning the Titanic in the Prologue, he kind of telegraphs future plot elements, but it works. This is a thoroughly enjoyable book. Glad I preordered it. Can’t wait for the next one.
Jack DuBrul rescued the Isaac Bell series, Definitely a five-star PLUS. He has worked with Clive to deliver a story that will keep you reading late into the night.
Dirk Pitt is given a journal that had been written by Isaac Bell concerning the truth behind the mining of byzanium and the parts that Dirk did not know.
After Dirk has his own harrowing experience of raising the Titanic years ago, he is about to learn even more.
Isaac Bell a private investigator for the Van Dorn Agency, he has kept a journal of his experience involving the case private until long after his own demise. Now his story has been given to Dirk, and it is an amazing adventure filled with danger and death following Isaac and the miners throughout the never before telling of this side of the story.
This is a fabulous story for those who love to devour action and adventure.
The Titanic Secret fills in the story of the sinking of the Titanic and the stories that eclipsed the characters who crossed paths is such an amazing way. I had great difficulty putting the story down!
You will love this amazing storytelling as more of the remarkable mind of Clive Cussler!
The authors have written a compelling book that is hard to put down. They have written this book in such a way that makes you feel like you are standing next to the people in the book and watching everything unfold in front of you eyes
