"It is 1906, and in New York City, the Italian crime group known as the Black Hand is on a spree: kidnapping, extortion, arson. Detective Isaac Bell of the Van Dorn Agency is hired to form a special "Black Hand Squad," but the gangsters appear to be everywhere--so much so that Bell begins to wonder if there are imitators, criminals using the name for the terror effect. And then the murders begin, each one of a man more powerful than the last, and as Bell discovers, to his dismay, the ultimate target may be the most powerful man of all" -- provided by publisher

I would rather shove my hand in a meat grinder than praise this trash. so unfocused, I don't think even the villain knows his end game. So bland, boring, forgettable, and with characters so bland and underdeveloped, they might as well be cardboard, this book is an insult from one of the greatest writers ever. My personal favorite author, the ingenious science of "Raise the Titanic", the treasure hunting adrenaline rush of "Lost Empire", has produced a piece of writing that doesn't even deserve the title. I have taken a hiatus from Clive Cussler, and sadly, may not return. This is the one that broke me. :(

The only Cussler book I've been unable to finish. Dialogue was silly, not usual standard
would expect from this series. The books right before this one and right after were
better.

Not my kind of a read.

Just not up to the usual standard. For one thing there were several pages of just characters in the book. So many had trouble keeping them all straight.

This book is fine if your a teen
otherwise I'm sure you will find it a huge disappointment. I tried to stay with but near the end it got even more juvenile.
I couldn't finish it.
