"Another action-movie-paced entertainment from Cussler's historical-thriller series." — Kirkus Reviews
Praise for THE BOOTLEGGER
"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
"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. 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
"[Might] be the best yet in the series by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott . . . The history of the unions in early 20th-century America along with the hazardous working conditions of the coal mines would be fascinating reading. Add a James Bond style flair with sabotage and villainy and the end result is a great action thriller."—Associated Press
"Fans of the Isaac Bell series will note the same exciting storytelling and vivid early twentieth-century setting, but they'll also note something different: even though it's set only four years earlier than the first Bell novel (2008's The Chase), the book features a much different Isaac: younger, more impetuous, less calmly analytical . . . this origin story (every hero needs one) will give Bell's fans a fresh look at their favorite private investigator."—Booklist - Praise for THE ASSASSIN
