The Chase

Clive Cussler

For years I have been a fan of Clive Cussler’s novels with his character of Dirk Pitt. So I thought I would try this novel which is a period piece with the main character, Isaac Bell, as a larger-than-life detective. Set in 1906 in the western U.S. Isaac Bell of the Van Dorn Detective Agency chases down the most ingenious and ruthless bank robber in history. Much like watching an Indiana Jones movie or reading a Dirk Pitt novel, you must suspend your belief about one man not being able to withstand all of the predicaments that confront him – one after the other. Using the setting and time period in the old west this story weaves a tale of fantastic adventure and nonstop action.
