WOW! What a thrilling “CHASE”! This book review for Clive Cussler’s novel “The Chase” is abosulutely superb readers will hold onto each page, flipping it terribly as a detective is out on a “fox hunt” for a vicious bank robber and murderer out on a spree robbing one bank at a time and leaving dead bodies for the sake of the thrill and pyshcological high.
1906, Western America: Detective Isaac Bell is up for a challenge, considered to The best of his time he is now given the task by the government to apprehend the vicious “Butcher Bandit”. If Detective Bell is the best of his field the criminal is no ordinary criminal as he has the mind, power and connection to wring detective Bell’s neck more than he expected. The “Butcher Bandit” is more slippery than a catfish and more cunning and dangerous than a tiger. Isaac Bell sets himself off to hunt the criminal but as the story unfolds he is slowly trapped in a web where he gets hunted himself! Will he catch his prey or will the prey devour him?
This would be my first Cussler novel and I must say it wont be my last! A complete adventure set in the “wild west” this novel would have to be one of my best read under “suspense and thrilling”. It is gripping and full of twists that I was driven away with “The Chase”.
I give this novel a five out of five stars.
Enjoy the indulgence of reading a book for not a lot us now have the luxury to do so.
