The Grey Ghost: Fargo Adventures #10 Reviews
This book is so boring, that it took me more than a week to finish. The Fargos fight some small British criminals. No thrilling adventure and treasure hunt in that story. This is for sure the last Cussler novel, that I bought.
Auch dieser Band der Serie ist wieder spannend, wie oft bei dem Autor ist es fast eine Reise durch die Geschichte
This is a really good book and does not contain the usual required suspension from reality in most Cussler books. My guess is that Robin Purcell did the majority of the writing and it made for a thoroughly enjoyable experience. What was really different were the passages back in time to 1906 and history/investigations by Isaac Bell. Each journey to the past was well written and very interesting. While some of the typical period language found in the Isaac Bell series was missing, it still was a positive part of the book. This Fargo tale seemed more like a multi topic and character detective novel, rather than highlighting the usual adventure content. I found it terrific. While the cast of characters were numerous, they all were identified and explained thoroughly, which added to the book's enjoyment. I also enjoyed the multiple geographic locations used in the novel, which added to the mystery and history. This a book best enjoyed over a series of reading episodes rather than a speed reading novel. The content is complex from time to time. If you have read the Isaac Bell series it will add to the enjoyment of the book.
Isaac Bell meets Sam and Remi Fargo in this latest installment of the Fargo series.In 1906, a Rolls-Royce Gray Ghost vanishes in Manchester, England. Detective Isaac Bell is assigned to the case and tracks down the Ghost. But the mystery doesn't end there, for three men were murdered and a supposed treasure was hidden inside the Ghost.Fast-forward to the present day, where Sam and Remi Fargo are drawn in to the mystery of the Gray Ghost, for once again, it has been stolen. Sam and Remi travel from the U.S. to England, Italy, and France looking for the elusive car, all the while trying to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. Will they succeed in finding the Ghost and the hidden treasure?I'm a fan of both the Fargo and Isaac Bell series, and it was interesting to see how Cussler intertwined both of these characters in the same novel. I enjoyed the story, and there's a definite level of excitement as it goes on. The characters are well-developed, and I especially enjoyed seeing Isaac Bell make a cameo. Looking forward to the next Fargo (and Isaac Bell) adventure.
"Clive Cussler writes formulaic stories...""Cussler is over the top..."Yeah, I've read all the criticisms of Cussler and his adventure novels and, while some of those critiques are probably valid, I really don't care.The fact is that Cussler, while no threat to win a Nobel Prize for Literature, knows how to create engaging characters and tell a great adventure story."The Gray Ghost," featuring two of my favorite Cussler heroes, is an example of what I'm talking about.The story revolves around the long-ago theft of an early Rolls-Royce prototype and a famous train robbery. Flash forward to the present day when Sam Fargo finds out he is a distant cousin to a British noble family that is in dire financial straits. Skeptical as to the Brit family's motives, he and his wife Remi agree to go to England to at least look into the situation. Predictably, adventure follows leading to a chase through Italy and France in search of that legendary motorcar and a hidden treasure.Full of dramatic action sequences, colorful characters, and exotic locales "The Gray Ghost" is a fun read; a perfect backpack companion for a day at the beach or a lazy summer afternoon in the park.
I was curious to see how Clive Cussler would integrate The Fargos and Isaac Bell into one story, since they are from different ages. I was impressed with how it was accomplished. A Fargo adventure utilizing a journal mentioning Isaac Bell as a character solving a crime which ties in extremely well with the present adventure. A typical Cussler adventure: containing drama and excitement. The Fargos must find the Gray Ghost Rolls Royce which was stolen first in 1905 and then disappeared soon after World War 2. All the while, trying to save Albert Payton a Viscount arrested for a crime, he was unable to commit. As well as finding The Gray Ghost, and the treasure associated with it all without the financial means necessary. At the same time the Fargos never know who the mastermind is behind this adventure. A excellent multi layered adventure, which never confuses the reader. And still contains the elements of a good Clive Cussler novel. I'm not a big fan of the Fargos adventures but this a good one. Thumbs Up!
Another triumph for Clive Cussler, my favorite author. But, this time he added a new twist. The story begins in 1905 in England with the building of the Gray Ghost by Rolls Royce and a train robbery. But, the Gray Ghost is stolen along with the booty from the train robbery. Fast forward to the present and enter Sam and Remi Fargo. They have been contacted by the family of the original owners of the Gray Ghost. Sam and Remi are shown the journals that were written by an ancestor who lived back in 1905 when the Gray Ghost was first Stolen. Enter Isaac Bell who was hired by the family to find the Gray Ghost and the treasure stolen in the train robbery. If you love Clive Cussler or have never read one of his books you will love this book and all the turns in the plot that it takes!
