Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Bootlegger by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott, read by Scott Brick.
It is 1920. Prohibition and bootlegging are in full swing. When Joseph Van Dorn is shot and nearly killed while in pursuit of a rum-running vessel, his friend and employee, Isaac Bell, swears to him that he will hunt down the lawbreakers. But Bell doesn't know what he is getting into.
When a witness to the shooting is executed in a manner peculiar to the Russian secret police, it becomes clear that these were no ordinary bootleggers.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I'd recommend the entire Isaac Bell series. I'm a real fan and the adventures are first rate
Would you be willing to try another book from Clive Cussler and Justin Scott ? Why or why not?
I'm trying to find the ones I haven't listened to!
What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Scott brick IS Isaac Bell. I couldn't imagine anyone else narrating the Bell Series. His portrayal of Bell, Van Dorn and the various other characters are superb.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If I could, I would!
Any additional comments?
The Bootlegger is another enjoyable installment, although maybe slightly weaker than previous adventures. Still, If you've enjoyed other installments of the series, then you'll enjoy this.
