Mr. Custler, in concert with his usual co-writer - in this case, Justin Scott, has done what he should have long ago and that is to write historical fiction. As any Custler fan should know, he is responsible for more underwater archaeology than probably any other private citizen alive. His knowledge of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century is legendary to many. It is excellent then, to read a novel from that time period which is written in his inimical style.

There is the usual buff male lead, who is followed about by the usual buff female lead. There is the brilliant but flawed bad guy who is doomed to fail in his nefarious plans due to the buff male lead. Oh, it is a close thing and the bad guy wins a few too, but in the end - well you know. It is Cussler after all.

Having said that, it is a well researched tale and the West is portrayed as it might have been. It verily tears along and is a great afternoon read. Good on you sir, I say. Let's have more of these.
