    PULP FICTION REVIEWS CATCHES A THIEF!

    The ThiefRon Fortier returns with another Pulp Fiction Review. This time out Ron takes a look at The Thief (An Isaac Bell Adventure) by Justin Scott from Berkeley Books. Isaac Bell created by Clive Cussler.

    THE THIEF
    (An Isaac Bell Adventure)
    By Justin Scott
    Character created by Clive Cussler
    Berkeley Books
    420 pages

    Every single time I finish a new Isaac Bell book by Justin Scott, I feel both satisfied and sad. Satisfied in that Scott has one again entertained me with his exploits of the turn-of-the-century Van Horn Detective Agency’s chief detective; sad that I now have to wait for the next one.

    The real joy of this series is its setting in history at a time when science and technology were altering the world on such a grand scale; it truly was an age of marvels and wonders. In the midst of all these remarkable achievements, as is always the case, the eternal war between good and evil continued to rage. While wondrous inventions made the lot of mankind easier, lessening the burden of daily toil, it also provided men of power with the incredible tools to subjugate less advanced nations.

    Imperialism was on a crash course with democracy and a World War loomed just over the horizon. This is the era of Isaac Bell and the love of his life, Marion. In “The Thief,” we are happy attendants at their wedding aboard the magnificent ocean liner, the Mauretania. At the same time, Bell fatefully comes to rescue of two scientists about to be kidnapped by German spies. He soon learns that the men have developed a new process that will make talking motion pictures possible. As Marian is a director of silent movies, she quickly educates her new husband on the importance of such a device and how it could revolutionize the media. Still, Bell is puzzled as to why the Imperial German Government is so obsessed with possessing what he sees as a mere entertainment device.

    Before the ship can reach the docks of New York, the older inventor is murdered by a German spy known as the Acrobat leaving only his young protégé with the knowledge of how to produce the new “talking” film machines. Bell vows to product the young man and escorts him to small town in California called Hollywood. Along the way Bell has to stop several attempts to kidnap the inventor, all orchestrated by the Acrobat. Although filled with authentic movie history set pieces, Scott keeps the action moving flawlessly leading up to a fantastic climax confrontation between Bell and the Acrobat you don’t want to miss. Thumbs way up on another great Isaac Bell novel.
