Collaborating with Justin Scott, well-known action/adventure author Clive Cussler has written another sure bestseller. The Spy is the third in a series featuring the travails of Detective Isaac Bell. If you intend to read The Spy I suggest that you read the first two books, namely The Chase followed by The Wrecker, because there are frequent references that having read the earlier books makes this one even more enjoyable.
The authors do a beautiful job of tying the glory days of rail travel back in the early 1900’s along with international intrigue, and there are plenty of interesting and dangerous circumstances developed throughout the book. This is a great relaxing summer reading experience that I hope you will enjoy as much as your Commander has over the past couple of days.
