“Cussler and Scott have written another wonderful page-turner . . . This is historical action-adventure fiction at its rip-roaring best!”—Library Journal (starred review)
“The Isaac Bell series continues to tell compelling stories. Tidbits of history are sprinkled throughout the narrative, and it’s fun to filter out fictional characters and events from historical facts.”—Associated Press
“As always in this series, the novel is very exciting, with excellent pacing and some very well drawn characters. With his combination of mental and physical prowess, Isaac Bell could easily become a sort of superhero (imagine a blending of Sherlock Holmes and Doc Savage), but the authors do a nice job of keeping him from crossing that line. Another fine entry in a strong series. Cussler is a perennial A-lister, popularity-wise, and his Isaac Bell novels are the pick of his prodigious litter.”—Booklist
“[A] laudable historical action novel.”—Publishers Weekly
Praise for The Striker
“This adventure might be the best yet in the series. The history is fascinating reading. Add a James Bond style flair with sabotage and villainy, and the end result is a great action thriller.”--Associated Press
“Interesting historical scene-setting facts; action that shifts from the dangerous depths of a coal mine to Wall Street, to a confrontation in a tunnel being dug for the New York subway and to a riverboat battle between two paddle-wheelers; deft characterizations; and hard-boiled dialogue. Classic Cussler."--Kirkus Reviews
“The Isaac Bell series is by far the most interesting and enjoyable of Cussler’s novels. They continue to show him at his best, commercially and literarily."--Booklist
“Exciting…The action flows swiftly, and the authors do a good job depicting the work conditions and the class warfare of the time.”--Publishers Weekly

A hat tip, as always, to Roland Dahlquist for his artwork that graces the pages in "The Bootlegger."
Life in the prohibition era East Cost, attempted murder of the head of the Van Dorn agency, corrupt Detectives and Police Officers, Bootleggers, Anarchists and Pre-World War II Germany. How could it not be a great read?
Clive Cussler and Justin Scott have done it again.
The writing is first rate, the plot is carefully crafted, and there are lots of colorful characters. This is one of the best novels in the Issac Bell series (I have read them all) and was very entertaining.
