Edit, Nov. 5, 2009: Funny to start reading a book about the "Southern Pacific Railroad" at the same time as financial tycoon Warren Buffet buys the second largest railroad in the US, "Burlington Northern Santa Fe"...
Edit, Nov. 8, 2009: Through! As speedy a read as the trains moving accross Amerioca in this gripping thriller. I enjoyed it very much.

I really enjoyed this one! I think Isaac Bell is becoming one of my favorite Cussler characters. As much as I enjoyed The Chase, I think I liked this one even more. Part of this was because some of the story took place in Ogden, Utah - my home town. Utah is a predominantly Mormon state, however, Ogden was a hub of the rail industry from when the golden spike was driven in 1869 to the 1940s and WWII. Railroad and military men gathered in Ogden and the result was a definite non-Mormon atmosphere of bars and brothels. This is detailed very well in The Wrecker. The story itself was a great actioner and quite enjoyable. The only complaint was that I didn't quite understand why Bell was unable to recognize the Wrecker from the drawing that had circulated when the Wrecker boarded the train in Ogden. Two other Van Horn agents did recognize him from the drawing and ended up dead in the Ogden back alleys. Otherwise, I enjoyed this one immensely and am looking forward to the next Isaac Bell story: The Spy, which will be published in June.

Thanks book-man-8 as usual for sharing your books. I will try to pass this on as a RABCK or possibly ray it forward if there is interest. Advertising on the forum.

This book arrived yesterday as a RABCK from perryfran. Thanks so much!
I've flipped through a few pages, and it looks like it's going to capture my interest. Historical fiction is a genre that I haven't explored very fully. From previous readers' reviews, it sounds like there's a good deal of "true history" woven into this tale.

Thanks also for including a bookmark, perryfran; can always use an extra one of those!
