Synopsis

Detective Isaac Bell returns in a remarkable new adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

It is 1902, and a bright, inexperienced young man named Isaac Bell, only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency, has an urgent message for his boss. Hired to hunt for radical unionist saboteurs in the coal mines, he is witness to a terrible accident that makes him think something else is going on…that provocateurs are at work and bigger stakes are in play.

Little does he know just how big they are.

Given exactly one week to prove his case, Bell quickly finds himself pitted against two of the most ruthless opponents he has ever known—men of staggering ambition and cold-bloodedness who are not about to let some wet-behind-the-ears detective stand in their way.


From the Paperback edition.

The Big Story

Good
Reviewed by Jeff Ayers on Mar 05 2013

The history of the unions in early 20th-century America along with the hazardous working conditions of the coal mines would be fascinating reading. Add a James Bond style flair with sabotage and villainy and the end result is a great action thriller.

...a little lacking are some of the more historical aspects of the time period. I am not sure if this is flaw of the co-authorship or just an oversight. But the descriptions are more clinical than messy...
