Publisher's Summary

Detective Isaac Bell's investigation into an attempted assassination brings him to the construction site of the Panama Canal - and straight into a nest of vipers - in the latest adventure in the number-one New York Times-best-selling series from Clive Cussler.

Detective Isaac Bell's wife has said that he is always in the wrong place at the right time. This is certainly the case when Bell thwarts the assassination of a US senator shortly after meeting the man. This heroic rescue is just the start of the mystery for Bell, who suspects that the would-be assassins have a much larger and more dangerous agenda - one involving the nearly constructed Panama Canal. While the senator supports the building of the canal, there are many, including a local Panamanian insurgency known as the Red Vipers, who never want to see its completion. 

With millions of dollars and the fates of two nations at stake, Bell heads to Panama to find answers. After a deadly bombing at the canal's construction site, he is determined to stop the insurgents - or whoever is funding them - before they can attack again.

The Saboteurs

I don’t know if this was the last of the books. Be.Cussler or not but it was one of the best for sure.

Excellent

Another great story. Scott Brick always delivers and I am never disappointed. One of the best in the Issac Bell series.

Just is not the same since Justin Scott left.

What happen to starting in the future then going back to the past then ending in the future again. For instance The Chase,

Justin Scott did his homework and it showed in his books. He great at what he does, Who did it novels. I was always trying to guess who was it and who did it. The first 3 chapters I already figured out who was the bad guy. So then it became a straight action book, which the Oregon Files were and you knew who did it in those books also right away,

Jack, is not a great fit for Isaac Bell Novels.

The ending didn't go well with me either.... again it should go back to present, or future time, for Bell. ie the first couple of books in the series.

The first books in the series are the ones that got me hooked, These are books that got my mind thinking. The history and attention to detail of subject. like the Cutthroat, kept me invested in this series.

I think I am going to stop my purchases of The Isaac Bell Novels. Unless Justin Scott wants to come back, This is not the same novels that Justin was a part of.

Another 5-star trip back in time.

Clive Cussler's "Issac Bell" series is one of my favorite Historical Fiction series of all times. It is also one of my favorite "Who Dunnit" crime series of all times. Combined in one series... it is an unbeatable and an amazingly accurate trip back to the early 1900's crime fighting. This book is as captivating and imagination immersing as the books in the series before it. The worst part of the book is coming to the end and realizing it will be 2 or 3 more years before a new one is available. Great, relaxing, fun summer read.

Good book Not Great

I liked the story, liked Brick, but the book lacked the little period specific details that make you believe you are in the early 1900’s

Great story

I love all of the Issac Bell novels. He is a typical hero who always gets his man. As long as you know what to expect from the Issac Bell books you will be pleased with this one. Historically Informative and entertaining as well.

not Dirk Pitt

it was more struggle than Cussler's Dirk Pitt books. it was hard getting used to it being from a long time ago. i love history but it was unusual. i love how Cussler usually ties a modern Dirk Pitt sdventure into a long ago historical mystery. This was set in the Teddy Roosevelt days as Pres. i think I would have enjoyed reading this more than in audio.
