Lovereading view...

A franchised collaboration which does show for it lacks the depth of a straight Cussler but if you are looking for an easy, escapist, undemanding read then this is fine. Smugglers, USA versus Russia, gang warfare and booze, lots of booze, for this is prohibition America.

If you like Clive Cussler you might also like to read books by Steve Berry, Matthew Reilly and Dale Brown.

Synopsis

The Bootlegger Isaac Bell #7 by Clive Cussler

The Bootlegger is the seventh of Clive Cussler's bestselling Isaac Bell novels. It is 1920. Prohibition and bootlegging are in full swing. When Joseph Van Dorn is shot and nearly killed while in pursuit of a rum-running vessel, his friend and employee, Isaac Bell, swears to him that he will hunt down the lawbreakers. But Bell doesn't know what he is getting into. When a witness to the shooting is executed in a manner peculiar to the Russian secret police, it becomes clear that these were no ordinary bootleggers. Bell is facing a team of Bolshevik assassins and saboteurs - and they are intent on overthrowing the government of the United States. An adventure laced with secret cargo and assassins, The Bootlegger is the seventh of Clive Cussler's Isaac Bell novels, and follows The Spy, The Thief and The Striker. Praise for Clive Cussler: Cussler is hard to beat . (Daily Mail). The guy I read . (Tom Clancy). The Adventure King . (Sunday Express). Clive Cussler is the author or co-author of a great number of international bestsellers, including the famous Dirk Pitt[registered] adventures, such as Arctic Drift; the NUMA[registered] Files adventures, most recently The Storm; the Oregon Files, such as The Silent Sea; the highly successful Fargo adventures; and the Isaac Bell series which begins with The Chase. He lives in Arizona.
