The Wrecker by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott
Prior to teaming with Clive Cussler on the Isaac Bell series, Justin Scott published twenty-three thrillers and mystery novels, including The Shipkiller, Normandie Triangle, A Pride of Royals, Rampage, The Widow of Desire, and The Nine Dragons. Using the pen name of Paul Garrison, Justin wrote five bestselling sea adventures starting with Fire and Ice (1998 NY: HarperCollins).
“The partnership between Clive and Justin is like a gift to the adventure genre junkie” says John Hutchinson of Norwood Press. “The reader is guaranteed to be taken on the ride of a lifetime with these two terrific writers.”
In The Wrecker (2009 NY: Penguin), it is 1907 and train wrecks, fires and explosions sabotage the Southern Pacific Railroad’s Cascades express line. Desperate, the railroad hires the fabled Van Dorn Detective Agency, where top investigator Isaac Bell quickly discovers that a mysterious saboteur haunts the hobo jungles of the West. “The Wrecker travels the American West causing damage and loss of human life, but no one knows who he is or what he wants” reports Hutchinson. “It will keep you turning pages until the very end.”

Justin Scott, (AKA Paul Garrison), one of my favorite authors, is bringing back Isaac Bell, the hero in Cussler‘s bestselling The Chase. The new novel is called The Wrecker, and is scheduled for release on November 17. VJ Books plans to offer this book in both US and UK editions, as well as our Norwood Press editions.
It is 1907. Train wrecks, fires and explosions sabotage the Southern Pacific Railroad’s Cascades express line. Desperate, the railroad hires the fabled Van Dorn Detective Agency. Van Dorn sends in its top investigator, Isaac Bell. Bell quickly discovers that a mysterious saboteur haunts the hobo jungles of the West. Known as The Wrecker, he recruits accomplices from among the down-and-outs to attack the railroad, killing them afterwards. The Wrecker travels the vast spaces of the American West as if he had wings, striking wherever he pleases, causing untold damage and loss of human life. Who is he and what does he want? Is he a striker? An anarchist? A criminal mastermind engineering some as-yet unexplained scheme? Whoever he is, whatever his motives, The Wrecker knows how to create maximum havoc. Bell senses that he is far from done – indeed, it would seem that The Wrecker is building up to a grand act unlike anything committed before. If Bell doesn’t stop him in time, the entire future of the country could be at risk.
