Book 6, An Isaac Bell Adventure

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Detective Isaac Bell returns in the remarkable new adventure in the #1 New York Times–bestselling series.

It is 1902, and a bright, inexperienced young man named Isaac Bell, only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency, has an urgent message for his boss. Hired to hunt for radical unionist saboteurs in the coal mines, he is witness to a terrible accident that makes him think that something else is going on, that provocateurs are at work and bigger stakes are in play.

Little does he know just how big they are. Given exactly one week to prove his case, Bell quickly finds himself pitted against two of the most ruthless opponents he has ever known, men of staggering ambition and cold-bloodedness . . . who are not about to let some wet-behind-the-ears detective stand in their way.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 21, 2013 – Bestseller Cussler and Scott explore the origins of their series hero in the exciting sixth Isaac Bell adventure (after 2012’s The Thief). In 1902, Bell’s employer, the Van Dorn Agency, dispatches the private detective to West Virginia, where he’s to go undercover as a coal miner and ferret out the identities of saboteurs looking to do damage to the Gleason Consolidated Coal & Coke Company on behalf of a union outraged by the ultrahazardous working conditions. When a train accident leads to fatalities, the Pinkertons finger union organizer Jim Higgins as the person responsible. Bell is baffled as to how the chain that connected the lead coal car to the engine could have been fractured in plain view of hundreds of workers without anyone, including himself, seeing anything. The action flows swiftly, and the authors do a good job depicting the work conditions and the class warfare of the time.

Customer Reviews

Good read

Typical of their work, a little slow at first but picks up quick. It is a two day read, can't stop reading it.

The Striker

One of the best ever by our friend of many names, just read this one and enjoy the story and smile at the end wishing there was more


I liked The Striker least of the Isaac Bell novels. It was typical of his plots and not very suspenseful. It must be difficult creating story lines when you pen several books each year.
