This is a story with almost everything that makes a book difficult to put down' from a rich plot full of intrigues, breath-taking suspense and succinct historical details; to characters that are colorful, rugged, vicious, smart and daring; to a setting that is far-reaching, complex and fascinating. It is a style I found particular appealing in the story of Gavin in Triple Agent Double Cross. This story has adventure, murder, integrity, values and love wrapped up so well.

This latest addition to Isaac Bell's adventures is as enjoyable as ever. As usual, the rhythm of action is breathtaking and the depiction of the fabulous american railroad system of yore spot on; In addition to these somehow predictable elements in a Cussler's book, he masterly uses the prohibition period in the USA and the post WW I unrest in Germany as well as the birth of Commintern worldwide operations as a credible background.
