Acrobat. The formula for the Isaac Bell series by Clive Cussler is for the competent hero to overcome the treachery of a villain who is a worthy adversary. In The Thief, the villain is Christian Semmier, a talented German military leader who wants to steal technology to help his country in the run up to a likely war. His acrobatic skills provide much dramatic action in this novel. Readers who like to read quick and entertaining thrillers will find some entertainment here. It’s no spoiler to relate with satisfaction that the good guy wins in the end. Rating: Three-star (Recommended) Click here to purchase The Thief from amazon.com.
