The sixth historical adventure featuring Isaac Bell, here investigating trouble in a coal mine in 1902 where strike action is imminent and skulduggery afoot. This goes back to Bell as he is just starting out as a young detective but you can actually read any of these in any order. This is race-against-time stuff again. Just what fans would expect.

Synopsis

The Striker Isaac Bell #6 by Clive Cussler

The Striker is the sixth novel in Clive Cussler's Isaac Bell series. It is 1902, and Isaac Bell is investigating sabotage in a West Virginia coal mine. But when he stops a runaway train, saving countless lives, Bell discovers that it is part of a conspiracy to frame striking miners. From West Virginia to Pittsburgh, New York City and Cincinnati, Bell is now on the hunt for clues to discover who is behind this murderous scheme. It puts him up against a ruthless agent provocateur allied to a cabal of staggering ambition and cold-bloodedness. Bell must prevent them starting a war which could bring the nation to its knees. Introducing us to Isaac Bell early in his career, The Striker is a pulse-pounding adventure from the world's favourite writer of non-stop thrillers.
