5.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining, June 28, 2010
This review is from: The Spy (An Isaac Bell Adventure) (Hardcover)
I was not sure what to expect when I picked this book up. I have not read the previous two as I've been occupied with Dirk Pitt, the Oregon Files and the others from Mr. Cussler and his co-authors. I took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. Not only was it an absorbing mystery, but it was fun to read and kept me glued to my chair. I wasn't able to read it in one sitting, but it was only a matter of days.

I like the setting, atmosphere and especially the MC, Isaac Bell. He played cat and mouse with "The Spy." Throughout the story, I had many suspicions but was still surprised to find out who the spy really was.

The setting in turn-of-the-century America was a refreshing change. Whether it was 100% accurate to the era was not something I was going to worry about. I'm not that nit-picky. Someone deep into the history of the era may find flaws, but to me, it was real enough that I felt I was there.

I was starting to think Mr. Cussler was diverging too much from his tried and true formulas but I have now decided that this was a nice change. I am still anxiously awaiting the next Dirk Pitt adventure, but after reading The Spy, I may have to go back and pick up the previous two.

I hope he continues this series, as long as he doesn't stop writing the Dirk Pitt novels. This was a great read and I highly recommend it.
