The Wrecker

In the 2nd installment of the Isaac Bell historical fiction/action-adventure series by Clive Cussler, The Wrecker, Issac Bell returned in another fantastic historical action-adventure. This time, he was up against the Wrecker, who've destroyed trains and wrecked railroad facilities across the country for no reason at all. The South Pacific Railroad President, Osgood Hennessy, had plans to finish the railroad by winter and hired Isaac Bell.. If the railroad isn't completed in time, Hennessy would lose funding and his company would be destroyed. But with the Wrecker who had plans of sabotaging the railroad, that was when Isaac Bell and his team came in to stop him in a race against time. 

This was a great break from the modern-day action-adventure of the many NUMA series. I love the cross-genre of historical fiction and action-adventure for this as well. I found Isaac Bell a fantastic lead character for this on-going series.  I also love the race against time theme for this one, when it dealt with railroads. I also loved the nature of espionage and sabotage, too. I did care about Isaac and Hennessy, because they dealt with a sabotaging maniac. I loved the time period of the 1900s and the West Coast, too. Great historical drama, plenty of fantastic action, intense adventure and lots of intrigue that was packed into this novel.
