Synopsis

In The Chase, Clive Cussler introduced an electrifying new hero, the tall, lean, no-nonsense detective Isaac Bell, who, driven by his sense of justice, travels early-twentieth-century America pursuing thieves and killers . . . and sometimes criminals much worse.

It is 1907, a year of financial panic and labor unrest. Train wrecks, fires, and explosions sabotage the Southern Pacific Railroad?s Cascades express line and, desperate, the railroad hires the fabled Van Dorn Detective Agency. Van Dorn sends in his best man, and Bell quickly discovers that a mysterious saboteur haunts the hobo jungles of the West, a man known as the Wrecker, who recruits accomplices from the down-and-out to attack the railroad, and then kills them afterward. The Wrecker traverses the vast spaces of the American West as if he had wings, striking wherever he pleases, causing untold damage and loss of human life. Who is he? What does he want? Is he a striker? An anarchist? A revolutionary determined to displace the ?privileged few?? A criminal mastermind engineering some as yet unexplained scheme?

Whoever he is, whatever his motives, the Wrecker knows how to create maximum havoc, and Bell senses that he is far from done?that, in fact, the Wrecker is building up to a grand act unlike anything he has committed before. If Bell doesn?t stop him in time, more than a railroad could be at risk?it could be the future of the entire country.

Filled with intricate plotting and dazzling set pieces, The Wrecker is one of the most entertaining thrillers in years.

About the Author

During a very active, interesting life, author. Clive Cussler became interested in writing. He was in the Air Force during the Korean War followed by a career in advertising writing award winning commercials. In 1996 he wrote his first notification work, The Sea Hunters. From that work he was awarded a Doctor of Letters degree, with his work being accepted in lieu of a thesis. Then, in 2002 he was awarded the Naval Heritage Award for his efforts in the subject of marine exploration. He is also a Fellow in three prestigious marine organizations.

In keeping with his marine interests, his books revolved around character, Dirk Pitt, who was a marine engineer, government agent, and adventurer. His first two novels were more traditional maritime thrillers, but the third, Raise the Titanic, established his iconic style.....a blend of high adventure and high technology involving villains, sunken treasure, and beautiful women.

Cussler writes in the style like fellow authors, Michael Crichton, creating techno - thrillers that do not depend on any certain settings with great spectacular and outlandish plot devices. He has had more than seventeen titles on the New York Times fiction best seller list.
