Read in June, 2010

Like all of Cussler's books this was an adventure based on historical events Dating back to 1907, a year of financia panic, but also a time of railroad building towards the northwest. The rail road hires a famous detective agency to track down a mysterious saboteur named, the "Wrecker".
The chase goes all over the country--via railroad, of course, involving banking, the telegraph system, the workers and their environment, the lush living of the rich--and the chase.
The main reason this did not get my higher rating was too much detailed description that made the story drag.
