Detective Isaac Bell returns in the remarkable new adventure in the #1 New York Times--bestselling series.
It is 1902, and a bright, inexperienced young man named Isaac Bell, only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency, has an urgent message for his boss. Hired to hunt for radical unionist saboteurs in the coal mines, he is witness to a terrible accident that makes him think that something else is going on, that provocateurs are at work and bigger stakes are in play.
Little does he know just how big they are. Given exactly one week to prove his case, Bell quickly finds himself pitted against two of the most ruthless opponents he has ever known, men of staggering ambition and cold-bloodedness . . . who are not about to let some wet-behind-the-ears detective stand in their way.

This would have been a better book if the heroine did not get killed off.

An interesting book, filled with secrets and mystery. Not one of my favorites but would recommend giving a try.

Great book for those nights you can't fall asleep. This book will put you to sleep. I think the author was under the gun to complete this boring mess.

Another good Isaac Bell adventure from Cussler/Scott. If you like the Isaac Bell series, you will most certainly enjoy this one.
