The Wire Devils

by Frank L. Packard

If you have read and enjoyed the Clive Cussler books "The Chase" and "The Wrecker," it will become apparent that he has read "The Wire Devils" and based his hero on the one found here.

This is the story of a man pursuing a master criminal using all the latest technology available, much like a James Bond novel - it uses the latest telegraph and telephone science, as well a mastery of steam locomotion.

The story has the cadences of early twentieth century, but the attitude of much more recent mystery novels.
