The fast pace, the action, the unpredictability — the sheer entertainment! The Wrecker was all of that and more. Set in as the new rail line continued to be built across the US while they struggled to stop the sabotage which was putting them further and further behind.

When a tunnel was dynamited and many died, the Van Dorn Detective agency was brought in to find the culprit — Isaac Bell was a determined and thorough investigator. A thoroughly enjoyable, rollicking ride which I highly recommend. View all 6 comments. Dec 01, Valerie rated it really liked it Shelves: male-protagonist , historical-fiction. It took me a whole month to finish this book and I usually finish about a book on average in a week so I was frustrated reading this book but I tried not to let that influence my rating.

My first impression was, "Wow, these guys know a lot about America. I knew about the San Francisco earthquake and some about the railroad but these guys went all It took me a whole month to finish this book and I usually finish about a book on average in a week so I was frustrated reading this book but I tried not to let that influence my rating. I knew about the San Francisco earthquake and some about the railroad but these guys went all out on their research and it definitely showed.

Their knowledge of the time period is what impressed me most but it also is what made the book longer than necessary. There were some parts were I thought they really could have skipped some details. I'd say they could have taken out maybe a quarter of the book, or 50 pages at least.

I mean seriously, I really don't need to know what every other person wore at each particular event going on; they could have just wrote that they were finely dressed and get on with it. And I don't need to know what caliber each pistol had. Details helped with finding hints and clues but these weren't necessary. I really like the detective Bell, he is smart of course , tough naturally , chivalrous, and handsome which wasn't greatly focused on thank goodness.

The other characters were given enough depth and they are very helpful to Bell. If changing points of view bother you then steer clear of this book. It was fun to see how intricate his whole plan was and how Bell is quick thinking. I could completely understand Bells frustration sometimes because I was frustrated too.

But the ending was completely satisfactory, no frustration whatsoever. I read mostly young adult and if I were to compare Clive Cussler I assume he is the money maker of the pair seeing that his name is bigger on the cover to a young adult author it would be it would be Tamora Pierce. It's like Pierce except for non-fantasy men instead of fantasy young adult girls.

But like I mentioned there were only a few. And the two are good writers; I couldn't even tell there were two writers. I read this book to broaden my spectrum of reading, get some more adult books and male guys on my list, and I'm glad it didn't end in disaster.

Isaac Bell and the Van Dorn Detective Agency are back, this time chasing after someone who is deliberating sabotaging the Southern Pacific Railroad's expansion efforts into Oregon. Yes, this book is set in , in the age of railroads and when the West was still a bit wild, and it's an ideal period for Cussler's imaginative storytelling.

There's a lot more lawlessness to play with, and a lot more h The second of the Isaac Bell novels, and the first where Cussler has a co-author for this series. I don't know if Scott brought the subtle differences to this book, or if Cussler just grew into Isaac Bell in this sequel, but the book is a much more enjoyable story than The Chase.

Bell is more accessible and human in this novel, and while you know he's never in any real danger, the writing is such that you still wonder how in the world he'll survive the Wrecker. Jul 01, Susan rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. What can I say?

I love my Cussler's. They are one of my secret pleasures in life. The Wrecker is an excellent follow-up to The Chase. We follow Issac and fellow detectives as they try to locate and twart "the Wrecker" who was causing train wrecks.

What did the Wrecker have to gain, and why was he so intent on destroying one particular train company following the Great San Francisco Earthquake?

Excellent piece on mannerisms and culture of the time era. Jun 23, Bhakta Jim rated it really liked it. Clive Cussler is writing books with collaborators these days, but it hasn't affected the quality of the stories. As much as I like the Dirk Pitt books, this series is in some ways even better.

Cussler and his writing partners really bring the early 's to life on the page in a way that is totally convincing. Isaac Bell is a millionaire's son who has decided that he would rather be a private detective with the Van Dorn agency than take over the family business. This agency takes on cases that Clive Cussler is writing books with collaborators these days, but it hasn't affected the quality of the stories. This agency takes on cases that the U. The villain in this one is a doozy. He wrecks trains all over the country, and he is what a James Bond villain would be in the early 's.

Cussler and company did a lot of research for this one.
