Clive Cussler’s new book: The Chase

The Chase
I’ve been a fan of Clive Cussler and his novels for years and received his new book “The Chase” as a Christmas gift from a friend. Although this current novel differs from the norm (ie. Dirk Pitt or Kurt Austin NUMA storylines), the story of a steam locomotive recovery from the days of the old west looks entertaining. According to a summary, the historic “thriller” takes place in Montana where a locomotive involved in a 1906 string of bank robberies and murders are connected. Can’t wait to find the ‘quiet’ time for this pleasure reading … thanks Jeff!

    just want to say ” The Chase” took me a little by surprise. I guess i was expecting Dirk or Kurt to save the day but now it seems that i have a new character that Clive takes to the limits of the time but not to far overboard or unbelievable. Just want to say “thanks Clive” all of us guys exchange your books all the time in the marina and you give us something that we understand and know and that is ………..WAY KOOL…….thank-you very much
