Publisher's Summary

Detective Isaac Bell returns in the extraordinary new adventure in The New York Times' best-selling series.
It is 1920, and both Prohibition and bootlegging are in full swing. When Isaac Bell’s boss and lifelong friend Joseph Van Dorn is shot and nearly killed leading the high-speed chase of a rum-running vessel, Bell swears to him that he will hunt down the lawbreakers, but he doesn’t know what he is getting into. When a witness to Van Dorn’s shooting is executed in a ruthlessly efficient manner invented by the Russian secret police, it becomes clear that these are no ordinary criminals. Bell is up against a team of Bolshevik assassins and saboteurs - and they are intent on overthrowing the government of the United States.

Very hard to get into but got better toward the end. Not up to Cussler's usual high standards. A little disappointing.

What would have made The Bootlegger better?

add a little excitement in both the reading and the story. Not the usual Dirk Pitt hero. In fact who is the hero. Got through about 2 hours and still not sure. Was it really Bell?

What could Clive Cussler and Justin Scott have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Give me a character to hook on to.

How could the performance have been better?

Was just a bit flat.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

Just disappointed. I really like the usual Clive Cussler and this did not fit that bill.
