    " Picked it up at the library on a whim. I was so surprised how much it really enjoyed it. I have read Dirk Pitt but never anything. I will no longer hesitate, all of Cussler's novels are fabulous!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arman Arifi | 1/29/2014

    " Classical Clive Cussler. A clever person is a powerful one. No matter what you do, it never tastes as the thing u long most doing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 1/22/2014

    " The series is a excellent read. If you looking for well rounded characters and a good plot line look no further. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bhanuraj Kashyap | 1/9/2014

    " Superb. The grandmaster of adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Hoff | 12/23/2013

    " The start of a great series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/24/2013

    " See, I knew there was a reason I should never, ever, have picked up a Clive Cussler book. I couldn't put the %$#@! thing down, and now I'll have to read the avalanche of novels the man has written. Sigh. They aren't high literature, and I know all the hooks he's using to suck you in- stunningly attractive main characters, good guy always right, alomst dies (at least twice) but manages to pull through albiet with a few major injuries, a romance or two, some self sacrifice, and a really, really despicable villian. Now, I've only read one of this guys books, but be honest with me, they are all like this aren't they? And yet I feel compelled to read more... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bradley Hartman | 10/22/2013

    " This has become my favorite Clive Cussler book. Isaac Bell is a character that rivals the top characters in fiction today, his nemesis Cromwell is both evil and totally entertaining, a perfect match for Bell. Through non-stop action and a serious look into Bell's own creation, this is a total package of adventure, excitement and plain old good reading. The train theme is wonderful, bringing flashbacks to mind of the Wild, Wild West train from the TV show of the same name, while the setting of San Francisco is refreshing as you go from hill to hill and Cromwell's mansion and bank to an earthquake that changes everything. This is a must read for any Clive Cussler fan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 10/12/2013

    " Very enjoyable in true Cussler fashion, even though it was not the usual characters or setting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Hayward | 10/6/2013

    " I'm a sucker for historical fiction and this one is (to my mild surprise) quite well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 D | 10/3/2013

    " Very interesting mystery and adventure. I was surprised by the story as Clive's tales are usually more convoluted but I did enjoy the race to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beauchampt | 9/24/2013

    " Another great on by Clive. He continues to keep his books unpredictable and fun to read. The turns and twists make you not want to put the book down even to sleep. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 9/3/2013

    " Very enjoyable novel (thanks for the recommendation, Dad). Good character development in this law-man/criminal chase story -- infused with true-life historical events. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy Vaughan | 8/31/2013

    " kept my mind on its toes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colleen | 6/18/2013

    " First half was great, second half with the car chase and the train chase got a little too long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janeal | 5/31/2013

    " This book really had me guessing the entire time! Loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clint | 5/28/2013

    " Slow, and nt as good as a dirk pitt "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/14/2013

    " A typical Clive Cussler adventure story but this book was interesting to me because part of the story took place in Telluride, Colorado. I learned facts about the history of Telluride that I had not known before. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank Wilem | 4/13/2013

    " Liked it okay but not as good as some of his others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick Hodges | 3/8/2013

    " Listened to this one while commuting. Pretty typical fair. Straightforward plot, with a bit of intrigue. Cliche characters. Fun, but nothing special. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Maxwell | 7/21/2012

    " Quite a good adventure novel about a bank owner who leads a double life as a bank robber, using a luxury railcar to escape his pursuers, and the hotshot detective who is trying to capture him. A bit unlikely, but a lot of fun if you dont take it too seriously. Good for a long plane trip. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 P J | 7/2/2012

    " I'm a real Clive fan but in this one he really did his homework. I know it was written just for me - about banking in the old west days of early railroad. I learned a lot about banking, railroads and early electricity! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 5/17/2012

    " always fun to read while traveling, quick and engaging "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nose-in-a-book | 5/10/2012

    " I liked this more than I thought I was going to. It's an easy "junk-food" read, but I liked the history added. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 4/5/2012

    " I enjoyed this book. It was an easy read with an engaging story. Lots of suspense kept it interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Douglas | 3/18/2012

    " I'm a great fan of Cussler books and though this one was written in a different style, it did not disappoint. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edi | 3/1/2012

    " I wasn't expecting a Western set in 1906, but this is a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TJ | 1/29/2012

    " Good story. A different story than usual, but good. Glad that he can write a different, but fun story. Enjoyed it a lot "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 1/8/2012

    " Fun mix of the old west with modern thriller! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nickwhipple | 6/28/2011

    " An action-packed quick read. Don't expect to be enlightened, but sometimes you just need entertainment, and this book provided just that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 6/21/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. The history is fascinating as is the detective work of the early part of this century. I love Isaac Bell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 6/20/2011

    " I loved the historical and geographical. But I am a character driven reader and the characters weren't very real for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 6/2/2011

    " Sometimes over-explains history, facts, etc. but entertaining read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 6/2/2011

    " I don't particularly like westerns, so when I started the book, I thought I might not like it. But it was not completely a western. I kept my interest from when I picked up and when I put it down 2 and a half hours later finished. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 5/29/2011

    " Clive cussler books always make me interested in the history....awesome stuff about quake of 1906 san francisco, takes a long time to read, spend half my time on wiki reading about history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nate | 5/19/2011

    " Solid Clive Cussler! If you like his stuff, you will like this one too. Good stuff!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/6/2011

    " Cussler is always a good read, but I especially enjoyed this one. It is very different from his other books and series. The story takes place in the early 1900's and is just a great, fun read. You have your action and adventure and some romance thrown in. I highly recommend The Chase. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carl | 4/17/2011

    " This was my first Cussler book, and will probably be my last. While it held my interest enough to finish it, the pure good vs pure evil became almost laughable, and the incredible achievements of the vehicles of that era was way off the charts. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tom | 4/13/2011

    " i thought the dialogue was absolutely amaturish.the male female interaction was corny.this was my first clive kussler and my last! "

    " This was a good book and I had read it before. I didn't like it aa well as "The Wrecker" This was the first one of that series. "

About the Author
Author Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler, an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, began writing novels in 1965. He published his first work featuring continuous series hero Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first nonfiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the State University of New York Maritime College considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a PhD thesis and awarded Cussler a doctor of letters degree in May 1997. It was the first time since the college was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed. His books, many of which are New York Times bestsellers, have been published in more than forty languages in more than one hundred countries. He splits his time between Arizona and Colorado.
