Swordplay. Isaac Bell is one of my favorite protagonists among the many characters in the multiple Clive Cussler franchises. The 10th Bell novel is titled, The Cutthroat, and fans will enjoy the return of a familiar cast of characters, especially the quirky crew of the Van Dorn Detective Agency. A new skill for Bell in this installment involves swordplay, and as fans would expect, Bell is pretty good at this activity. Novels in this series, and anything with Cussler’s name, can be relied on for some distracting entertainment, packed with tension and action, and a reliable resolution in which the good guys win at the end.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
