The Gangster (Isaac Bell, #9) by Clive CusslerI see a historical suspense book like this as a sort of palate cleanser between more substantial courses of reading, and in that role The Gangster serves very nicely. Its historically accurate to the extent it needs to be, the plot moves along briskly, the characters are believable if somewhat one-dimensional and it builds suspense nicely even if its not exactly filled with surprising twists and turns. Im no expert on Cussler - this is the first book of his Ive ever picked up - so I can make no point of comparison with his other books or others in this apparent series built around the character of an early 20th century private detective named Isaac Bell. But it certainly is entertaining enough to keep you reading and you dont need to have read anything else in the series to follow the plot or appreciate the characters. If youre not a stickler for dramatic excesses, youll likely find this a sufficiently enjoyable departure from more-serious fare. And, as such experiences ought to do, youll probably be well prepared to dig into something more nutritious and rewarding.
