Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm a big fan of Cussler and have been for many years. DESPITE his predictability and repetitive plots.

This book is so unlike Cussler and I will give the credit to Justin Scott. I loved this book. It was a refreshing change from Cussler's formulaic (but enjoyable) Dirk Pitt stories.

It was one of those books that kept me going until the end. I couldn't put it down and really needed to see what happened next. I plan to see what else Justin Scott has put out.

I haven't read the first book because I didn't know it existed. So it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the story. But I do plan to read it.

The book's not perfect, but close. The bad guy seems more like a supervillian with everything he can do. But this IS a Cussler novel. And as someone else mentioned, how does the hero NOT see who the bad guy is? But I can forgive these small details because of the strength of the rest.

Great story.

These were excellent stories told by a demanding Author.
Demanding in the fact that he really kept the reader busy not only with the story line but by the number of people that come an go through out the story but all end up being an integeral part of that story. Also the vastness of the scenes, all across America and also into Europe in the case of the Wrecker.
They both have historical facts interwoven through them which brings so much life to them, along with the fact that they are very fast moving stories. They were intriguing to me to the point that I could hardly put them down.
To make the most of them,and to keep them in chronilogical order they should be read in that order. The Chase first and then the Wrecker.
They are stories involving the Southern Pacific Railroad and the troubles that they endured in establishing themselves. They hired a Detective agency and the stories revolve around the main Detective.
I have enjoyed several other books by Clive Cussler but these two really did it for me as I am a life long TRAIN nut and modeler.
For an enjoyable and fast moving read you can't beat these two.
Thankyou Mr. Cussler, I had read "The Sacred Stone before these and I have now purchased "The Navigator" and "Polar Shift" to confirm my loyalty to you. I wish I would have found you years ago.

Greed and corruption is not new. Isaac Bell is rather new. Detective Isaac Bell is not your typical crime fighter, but he is your typical Cussler protagonist. Does no wrong, but has his weaknesses. Fights and usually wins - figures some things out and is good enough to get lucky. Age of rail. Fantastic Story.

I have read the first book and now this one and I think it's not as good as the first one but it's still a good read. If you enjoyed the new setting in which those stories take place ( Turn of the 20th century far west ), we are going back to the same place and it's a pleasant ride.

Has for the presentation of the product, I got the hardcover version and the quality of the book is good.

Format: Hardcover
So it was, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, "It is the king of Israel!" Therefore they surrounded him to attack; but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him, and God diverted them from him. -- 2 Chronicles 18:31

If you liked The Chase, you will probably like The Wrecker even better. They story has an even more diabolical and daring villain, and the plot is deliciously complex and rewarding to unravel. If you haven't read The Chase, read it first. You'll like The Wrecker better if you do.

It's 1907, the year after the great San Francisco earthquake (nicely featured in The Chase), and Isaac Bell has been charged with protecting the far-flung operations of the Southern Pacific Railroad, which is taking a desperate gamble to finish a new line through the mountains before winter and itchy financiers set in. The Wrecker moves at will and strikes everywhere, both planned and unplanned, to pull out the foundation under the railroad at a time when it is terribly exposed. On behalf of the Van Dorn Detective Agency and an army of railroad police, Bell is facing a losing battle. The Wrecker need only go where Bell and the detectives aren't, and he can do lots of damage . . . especially when he recruits allies among the disaffected, anarchists, disgruntled union men, and those who hire out to the highest bidder.

Clive Cussler and Justin Scott do an admirable job of setting up dangerous situations for Bell to defuse, each one more challenging than the last. The tension builds and builds, making the thriller aspect work quite well.

There's only one flaw in the ointment: Bell seems to be monumentally obtuse in not identifying who The Wrecker is. As a result, the story doesn't work quite as well as it might.

You'll have fun anyway. Enjoy!
