Sarah Broadhurst's 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 Patrick Woodrow, Robert Ludlum and Michael Cordy.

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 Zero Hour; the Oregon Files, such as Mirage; the Isaac Bell Adventures, which began with The Chase; and the highly successful most recent series, the Fargo Adventures. He lives in Arizona. Justin Scott is the author of twenty-six novels, including The Shipkiller and Normandie Triangle; the Ben Abbot detective series; and five modern sea thrillers under his pen name Paul Garrison. He lives in Connecticut.
