Un nemico spietato.
Un Isaac Bell alle prime armi.
La nascita di un eroe.
1902. Sono passati solo due anni dal suo apprendistato presso la Van Dorn Detective Agency, quando un brillante ma inesperto Isaac Bell ha un messaggio urgente per il suo capo. Ingaggiato per scovare sabotatori unionisti nelle miniere di carbone, assiste a un terribile incidente che potrebbe essere il risultato di una macchinazione ben più complessa di quanto i suoi superiori possano pensare. Ma Isaac non può neanche immaginare quanto alta sia la posta in gioco. Con una settimana di tempo per dimostrare la validità delle sue ipotesi, Bell si trova a fronteggiare due degli avversari più temibili e spietati che abbia mai incontrato, uomini crudeli e divorati dall’ambizione che non si lasceranno mettere i bastoni tra le ruote da un giovane detective alle prime armi...

Let me fill you in on a little-known fact: I am not - let me repeat that, not - a history buff. Back when I finished the first of what would be three basic freshman history classes in college, in fact, I changed my major simply so I could avoid taking the other two. So when I saw the period setting o Leggi tutto
It gets rounded up to a 4 because it takes place in Pittsburgh, typical Issac Bell.
Justin Scott and I have been friends for many years, and I am a big fan of much of his work. This series with Clive Cussler, starring the dashing detective Isaac Bell, is great good fun. Meticulous research into the swirling array of settings, modes of transportation, ladies' fashion - well, everyth Leggi tutto
3.5 stars.... I wasn’t thrilled with this book..
2.5 Stars The Striker is the worst book in the Isaac Bell series, it just felt like an inferior copy of The Wrecker, with many of the plot details recycled. Justin Scott comes dangerously close to phoning this one in. It seemed like he ran out of ideas so he decided to do a prequel. He obviously didn Leggi tutto
This is the 6th of Clive Cussler’s Isaac Bell Adventures which I have read. (Actually it is a prequel to the others.) It sometimes seems that the series is caricature of detective novels, but they have been entertaining. Set in the early 1900’s, they contain many word pictures of technology of the t Leggi tutto
A prequel of sorts to the Isaac Bell series, the majority of the story takes place when Isaac is first starting out as a detective for the Van Dorn Agency. He is set to spy on the coal miners to see if any of them are going to strike, but when an instigator tries to frame the union, Bell's loyalties Leggi tutto
I love the back story of Issac Bell. Clive Cussler has once again given his readers what they want. At least this reader is very happy to see Issac as an inexperienced young dectective who is learning the ropes of from the best of the Van Dorn Detective Agency. The story is set in coal country in 19 Leggi tutto
Series is getting worse. The Chase and The Wrecker were good, skipped The Spy, The Race was tiresome, The Thief was lackluster, The Striker was abysmal. I hoped for being something of an origins story, the book would develop Bell's character, but the narrarive jumped around too much between unimpress Leggi tutto
I've generally been souring on Clive Cussler. All the books are kind of the same. They're mind candy. Dirk Pitt, Juan Cabrillo, Kurt Austin, the Pitt kids. They're all the same guy. I don't go anywhere near the Pitt books anymore. Cabrillo and Austin, I'm looking to just get those guys occasionally. Leggi tutto
