Book 3, An Isaac Bell Adventure

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


One man wants to destroy the world.
One man can save it.
Isaac Bell is on the case.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 19, 2010 – Set in 1908, bestseller Cussler and Scott's action-packed third adventure featuring Isaac Bell, head operative of the Van Dorn Detective Agency, leaves behind the railroad theme of the first two books (The Chase and The Wrecker), focusing instead on the espionage-riddled world of warship and armament manufacturing in the buildup to WWI. Someone is murdering the leading lights of America's naval research and development. When the indefatigable Bell looks into the supposed suicide of chief gun designer Arthur Langner, he uncovers a succession of possible international suspects, all of whom are attempting to disrupt America's development of a fleet of dreadnought battleships. Bell clashes with old enemies and new until the climactic battle, where he must stop a massive submarine attempting to sink the navy's newest battleship. The expanded area of interest will attract new readers to this exciting series in the Cussler franchise.

Customer Reviews

Good read

Sometimes hard to follow. The depiction of Mr Bells exploits will keep you wondering what is next. I would like to think this is how it was in the early 1900's. Riding on trains to get to where you wanted to go. I just love the description of Mr Bells locomotive car. Makes you wonder how it would be to drive a car like it. Almost give the impression of driving by the seat of your pants. What can I say great book. A must read if a Clive fan.

Not Cussler's Best

Clive Cussler has a history of producing entertaining adventure novels with heroes larger than life in science fiction escapades. With Isaac Bell, he's out of his comfort zone. The novels are set almost a century in the past, and the setting doesn't suit his style as well as the "a few years in the future" timeframe in his other series. That's not to say it's a poor read, just that it doesn't meet my expectations for a Cussler novel.
