Radio Houstoned: Clive Cussler and The Chase
Click the button below for Night & Day Editor Olivia Flores Alvarez's interview with author Clive Cussler.
New York Times bestselling author Clive Cussler is a lot like the men he writes about -- he’s tough, weather-worn and always ready for an adventure. For his latest book, The Chase , Cussler has left Dirk Pitt (the lead in 19 Cussler novels) at home and instead taken up the story of detective Isaac Bell.
As the author is a deep sea diver who has discovered more than 60 shipwrecks, it’s no wonder that an underwater wreck is featured in The Chase. Moving between 1906 (during a two-year crime spree by the Butcher Bandit) and 1950 (when a train car containing the watery remains of three of the Bandit’s victims is discovered at the bottom of a lake), The Chase is full of twists and turns. Is Bell hunting down a killer? Or is he being hunted down? Cussler keeps the action going full-speed ahead from start to finish. He reads at 6 p.m. Friday. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet.
