“Isaac Bell is an extraordinary detective and has been very successful in arresting his quary. This time he ha come up with a very smart criminal... known as the Butcher Bandit. The Chase, of course, is Bell's attempt to catch this murdering bank robber.
Almost all of the story takes place in 1906. Clive Cussler's style is somewhat different from what you would expect to see in a novel at this time. I have never before read a book by this author, so I don't know if he always writes in this style, or if he is doing it deliberately to make it sound more like 1906. I enjoyed the book, although it was predictable and I think I will try some of his other books to determine if he uses the same style of writing.”
