The new thriller in the #1 New York Times–bestselling Isaac Bell series from grand master of adventure Clive Cussler.    As Van Dorn private detective Isaac Bell strives to land a government contract to investigate John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil monopoly, the case takes a deadly turn. A sniper begins murdering opponents of Standard Oil, and soon the assassin—shooting with extraordinary accuracy at seemingly impossible long range—kills Bell’s best witness, a brave and likable man. Then the shooter detonates a terrible explosion that sets the victim’s independent refinery ablaze. Bell summons his best detectives to scour the site of the crime for evidence. Who is the assassin and for whom did he kill? But the murders—shootings, poisonings, staged accidents—have just begun as Bell tracks his phantom-like criminal adversary from the “oil fever” regions of Kansas and Texas to Washington, D.C., to the tycoons’ enclave of New York, to Russia’s war-torn Baku oil fields on the Caspian Sea, and back to America for a final, desperate confrontation. And this one will be the most explosive of all.

3.0 For nothing more than an entertaining read, this 8th book in the Isaac Bell series is perfect!
Driving up north from Florida, I listened to Clive Cussler’s latest book. As usual, it was a fast paced, exciting story designed to keep the reader involved even when the characters were in the most implausible situations. The back story begins at the turn of the 20th century, but most of the action...
