Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Spy, Clive Cussler and Justin Scott's compelling third instalment in the Isaac Bell tales. Isaac Bell is on the hunt for the killer of some of America's finest minds....

In 1908, when a brilliant American battleship gun designer kills himself, his grief-stricken daughter is deeply suspicious. She turns to the legendary Van Dorn Detective Agency, where chief investigator Isaac Bell finds clues that indicate murder. Uncovering more suspicious deaths, Bell realises that someone - an elusive spy - is orchestrating the destruction of America's brightest technological minds. And the murders all connect to a top-secret project known as Hull 44. As Bell gets closer to the truth and the spy himself, he is pitted against German, Japanese, and British agents. More than the future of his country is at stake - it's the fate of the world.

Another great Isaac Bell adventure....

What did you like most about The Spy?

Superbly narrated by Scott Brick once again.
I wasn't drawn into the story as I have so often been with other Cussler stories, however this was still well worth the listen.
I realy enjoy Cusslers early 1900's detail. Such a fascinating period....

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favourite?

Isaac Bell of course...however some of the other Van Dorn operatives are interesting characters too...

Any additional comments?

Well worth a credit!

Not up to standard

Disappointed in this outing for Isaac Bell. Plot was muddled and too heavily populated. Couldn't seem to decide whether it was a crime or espionage story and the epilogue was almost ridiculous. Not sure that I will be following Isaac any further.

Another rip roaring tale

An enjoyable listen with some gentle twists and turns. I felt the story was honey for the ears but could have done with an occasional bee to offer a sting.

Isaac bell is a bit poo.

Well as a relatively big Clive cussler fan the Isaac bell series seems to be lacking the same inventiveness of other adventures.

One of the most bloodthirsty books I have read.

I do like a good adventure yarn .. and of all Clive Cussler books I admire detective Bell. But this has been the worst, the bloodiest, in terms of murder, types of murders. I almost didn’t get to the half way point, but put the book aside for some Jules Verne adventure. Will take a long rest from Clive Cussler and get back to a lighter tale or two. Maybe read Ladies of Missalonghi again.

Isaac Bell is everything you want in a hero

loved it like I loved all the previous Isaac bell books. Great story, great detail if not historically accurate.

Gripping

this story line is gripping with enough human relationships intrinsically woven through the plot making it all the more interesting
