"As Van Dorn private detective Isaac Bell tries to land a government contract to investigate John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil monopoly, the case takes a deadly turn. A sniper begins murdering opponents of Standard Oil, and soon the assassin kills Bell's best witness. Who is the assassin and for whom did he kill? Bell tracks his phantom-like adversary from the "oil fever" regions of Kansas and Texas to Washington, D.C., to the tycoons' enclave of New York, to Russia's war-torn Baku oil fields on the Caspian Sea, and back to America for one final, explosive confrontation"--Provided by publisher.

One of most frustrating Clive Cluster books attempted to read - and have read many.

Actually stopped reading after 200 plus pages. Author attempted to fill in way too many names, places, smart details, etc... totally forgetting to carry on a plot.

Another well written, action packed, hard to put down Isaac Bell adventure. But then, aren't they all?
