Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Assassin by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott, read by Scott Brick.

As private detective Isaac Bell strives 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. Then the shooter detonates a terrible explosion that sets the victim's independent refinery ablaze.

Bell summons his best detectives to scour the site for evidence. Who is the assassin and for whom did he kill?

The murder-shootings, poisonings, staged accidents have only just begun as Bell tracks his phantom-like adversary worldwide before returning to America for a final, desperate confrontation.

Another good Bell Adventure

Any additional comments?

The Assassin is another enjoyable part of the Isaac bell series. This time Bell is on the trail of an assassin bent on revenge - who will stop at nothing in order to achieve their goal.
Scott Brick turns in another flawless performance (he really is a credit to Audible).
Similarly to the other books in the Isaac Bell series, you don't necessarily need knowledge of past escapades to enjoy this one (although it does help in my opinion).
For me, The Wrecker is the benchmark in the Isaac Bell series, and The Assassin falls just short of that. Still, if you're a Cussler (or Bell) fan, then you'll undoubtedly enjoy this one too.
