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. Another remarkable adventure from the limitless imagination of Clive Cussler.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Simplistic

My first and certainly last Cussler. This book consists of a sequence of clichés. The story has absolutely no originality, everything reads/sounds familiar. At the end of the 19th century some of the ideas might have been innovative (see Sherlock Holmes) but seriously writing this at the beginning of the 21st century is an insult to the reader. The characters are flat, stereotype and implausible. Very disappointing. Reader = OK.
