It is 1907—a year of financial panic and labor unrest. Train wrecks, fires, and explosions sabotage the Southern Pacific Railroad’s Cascades express line and, desperate, the railroad hires the fabled Van Dorn detective agency. Van Dorn sends in his best man, Isaac Bell, who quickly discovers that a mysterious saboteur haunts the hobo jungles of the West, a man known as the Wrecker, who recruits accomplices from the down-and-out to attack the railroad—and then kills them afterward. The Wrecker traverses the vast spaces of the American West as if he had wings, striking wherever he pleases, causing untold damage and loss of human life. Who is he? What does he want? Is he a striker? An anarchist? A criminal mastermind engineering some unexplained scheme?

Whoever he is, whatever his motives, the Wrecker knows how to create maximum havoc, and Bell senses that he is far from done. If Bell doesn’t stop him in time, the railroad won’t be the only thing at risk …

    " Cussler sure can spin a good yarn! After the first Isaac Bell, I had to read the rest. Edge of your seat stuff! "

    " Overall, really good action detective story. Starts a little slow but once you get into it, you're hooked. Lots of interesting background on the railroad industry in the early 1900's. Didn't realize this was book #2 of a series, so I'll probably find the first one and read it also. "

    " This really got me hooked on Clive Cussler's new series. Issaac Bell is a definative Cussler character. The Van Dorn Agency he works for has a motto: "We never give up, Never." The story starts in Germany with Issaac coming upon a castle in the middle of a blizzard in 1934. Then it jumps to 1907 and catches steam from there. The story goes from Oregon to Ogden, Utah. Then to New Jersey and back to Oregon, then to New York and all the way back to Oregon. Clive takes you across the country by the best transportation of the time; steam locomotive with all of the opulence to the era. I don't want to give away the ending, but just remember the motto of the Van Dorn Agency. I hope that you will enjoy this book and get hooked to this author. This was second time to read this and I will most gladly read it again and again. "
