1909, Stato di New York. Il re dei quotidiani, Preston Whiteway, ha deciso di offrire una somma notevole all'aviatore che, per primo, riuscirà ad attraversare l'America in meno di cinquanta giorni. In realtà, vuole che a vincere sia Josephine Frost, la pilota più in gamba e, soprattutto, più affascinante del Paese. Motivo per cui ha ingaggiato Isaac Bell, della Van Dorn Detective Agency. Josephine, infatti, ha visto qualcosa che non avrebbe dovuto vedere; ora qualcuno la vuole morta e non si fermerà davanti a niente e a nessuno, nemmeno davanti a Whiteway e a Bell, il quale, per garantire l'incolumità della giovane e temeraria aviatrice, dovrà imparare a volare per seguirla nelle sue spericolate manovre. Nel frattempo, una serie di misteriosi incidenti mette a rischio la vita degli altri partecipanti alla competizione.

Another really good Isaac Bell book. I loved how much he loved flying!
I lost interest in this one compared to the first few. I struggled through and hopefully the next one will be better
The book is has a good story but it sure didn't grab me like the other Isaac Bell novels. It seemed like they were all bad guys. Not even close to being as gripping as the Wrecker was.
Where Cussler got the idea of a protagonist that was a Pinkerton-like operative at the turn of the 20th century, I'll never know. Thank God I only have three previous novels in the series to catch up with. The story was enough to allow me to overlook the sometimes over-heated writing and stereotypica Leggi tutto
This was in the beginning and middle a fast paced action packed story. Very interesting and full of colorful characters that all played a part in making this a possible 5 star rating story. But alas came the ending, an ending that was both anticlimactic and lazy in its detail and suspense. So all I
The fourth book in the Isaac Bell series, the action revolves around a transcontinental air race in the early days of aviation. This Adventure struck struck me as a cross between Wacky Races and Dastardly and Muttley which made it a really fun read!
