The Isaac Bell Series by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott

by:  Clive Cussler and Justin Scott
published by:  Putnam Adult

In The Chase we are introduced to Isaac Bell.  The hero of this series by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott.  It takes place in 1906 and tells the story of private investigator Isaac Bell and his quest to capture the "Butcher Bandit".  The Bandit travels by railway and Bell follows him all over the country in an attempt to catch him before he robs the next bank and kills all the witnesses.

The second book in this series is The Wrecker.  Isaac Bell is back and this time he is employed to capture a saboteur named The Wrecker.  He travels the railways, destroying rail
lines, blowing up trains and train depots.  However, he is someone that everyone least suspects.  He is a master of disguises and he is an elusive catch for Isaac and his team.

I really like this series.  The characters in these books are so much fun.  These books take place in the early 1900's and that's one of my favorite times to read about.  The writers seem to capture the atmosphere so well.  The audiobooks are also read by Scott Brick who does an excellent job.  I would definitely recommend this series to the mystery readers and the fans of historical fiction.
