Praise for The Gangster
“Cussler’s thrilling ninth Isaac Bell adventure pits Bell against Antonia Branco, who’s outwardly a respectable New York City businessman, but is in fact a ruthless crime boss . . . A fascinating and suspenseful plot.” —Publishers Weekly
“As usual, the latest Bell thriller combines a vivid historical environment with a top-notch story and enjoyable, realistic characters. Bell, the detective whose nimble intellect often gets him out of tight situations, is one of Cussler’s most engaging protagonists, and the series remains fresh and exciting.” —Booklist
“Cussler has written another wonderful historical thriller. The action is fast and thoroughly enjoyable.” —Library Journal
Praise for the Isaac Bell Novels
“Cussler and Scott have written another wonderful page-turner. This is historical action-adventure fiction at its rip-roaring best!” —Library Journal (starred review)
“As always in this series, the novel is very exciting, with excellent pacing and some very well-drawn characters. Cussler is a perennial A-lister, popularity-wise, and his Isaac Bell novels are the pick of his prodigious litter.” —Booklist
“The Isaac Bell series is a fun jaunt into America’s past and the books are a wonderful examination of life in the early twentieth century.” —Associated Press
“The Assassin is . . . action-movie-paced entertainment.” —Kirkus Reviews
About the Author
Clive Cussler is the author of more than fifty books in five bestselling series, including Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Fargo. His life nearly parallels that of his hero Dirk Pitt. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he and his NUMA crew of volunteers have discovered more than seventy-five lost ships of historic significance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley, which was raised in 2000 with much press publicity. Like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features more than eighty examples of custom coachwork. Cussler lives in Arizona and Colorado.
Justin Scott is the author of thirty-one novels, including The Shipkiller and Normandie Triangle; the Ben Abbott detective series; six thrillers under his pen name Paul Garrison; and his coauthorship with Cussler of The Wrecker, The Spy, The Race, The Thief, The Striker, The Bootlegger, The Assassin, The Gangster, and The Cutthroat. Scott lives in Connecticut.

Now, Isaac travels to London to pursue his hunch, while in America, a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde play travels across the country. It's possible that the killings of the young actresses might lie with this play troupe. To make matters even more difficult for Isaac, his wife, Marion Morgan Bell, has proposed making the Jekyll and Hyde play into a movie, thus putting herself in danger. "The Cutthroat" promises to be Isaac Bell's greatest case yet.
I've read all of the Isaac Bell series, and have enjoyed each one. I especially like the time period setting for each novel. As with the previous books in this series, this story is very exciting and builds in intensity throughout while leaving the reader to guess who the "bad guy" is until the very end. The characters have become old friends, many of whom have appeared in each of the previous books in the series. I'm a big fan of Isaac Bell as well as Cussler's other characters and I'm anticipating the next Isaac Bell adventure. Highly recommended.
This is written in plain English and is the sort of book you can share with your prayer group. The only cuss word I noted was the d-word. Therefore, if this was a film I expect it would be rated G.
I suspect this most of the writing in this was by Justin Scott. This is not a bad thing, but, unfortunately, I and many others probably opted to spend 15 bucks on it because of the Cussler brand and in knowing that we've bought all or most of the previous nine Isaac Bell adventures. Had it not given top billing to Cussler, I probably would have passed on the purchase. Especially because the time period just after the turn of the century and just preceding World War One is, for me, rather blase.
Passing up the purchase based on my prejudice, however, would have been a mistake. The prologue grabbed me with a sense of curiosity and its humor. Following the prologue, chapter one confirmed that this Action-Adventure would have plenty of humor and would not be blase.
At 407 pages, I found this a relatively fast read. In part due to the humor, suspense, and the page-turner hooks at the end of each chapter. Indeed, next month I will add the 9 hours, 21 minute Audible version to my library, of course.
Four stars out of five. Explaining why I am rating it less than five stars would necessitate a spoiler, which I am loathe to do on purpose. At any rate, this is a clean, fun Action-Adventure that most anybody can enjoy. Unlike so many in its genre, it doesn't take itself too seriously.
Comments regarding your opinion of this book or of my review, whether favorable or unfavorable, are always welcome. If you buy the book based on my review and become disappointed, especially, I do want to know that and I want to understand how I can improve as a book reviewer. Just please be polite.
I know Mr Cussler is expected to turn out new books in each of his series quickly. I would love to see new Issac Bell and Oregon books at least every three months, but even I know that is impossible. I am willing to wait extra time for the exceptionally good reads I have come to expect from the Cussler series.
I give this four stars because this is the first of the Issac Bell books that I found not up to par. If there is another sub par book in this series, I would likely give it two or three stars.
