Cussler's back, this time with coauthor Dubrul. For those readers who are still counting, it's Cussler's twenty-eighth book. This one involves the clandestine spy ship Oregon, whose crew--led by one Juan Cabrillo--work for what Cussler describes as "high-powered Western interests." Cabrillo's newest employers are a consortium of Japanese shipping tycoons who are being threatened by pirates. The plot includes commercial freighters that are disappearing, missiles that North Korea is selling to Syria, bad guys planting a bomb on a ship that the U.S. wants to destroy, the sinking of a research vessel, covert operations from any number of nations, and the threat of diseases such as typhoid and cholera that could run rampant--and that's just the first 100 pages. These are a few trite lines ("We can't see diddly," for example) and an ending that doesn't come as a surprise, but Cussler's countless fans won't care. George Cohen

About the Author
Clive Cussler is the author of many New York Times bestsellers, most recently The Spy and Lost Empire. He lives in Arizona.
Jack Du Brul is a graduate of the Westminster School and George Washington University. Trying to add as much adventure to his life as he does to his novels, Du Brul has climbed Masada at noon, swam in the Arctic Ocean off Point Barrow, explored war-torn Eritrea, camped in Greenland, and was gnawed on by piranhas in the Amazon River. He collects zeppelin memorabilia and when not writing or traveling (25 countries and counting), he can be found in a favorite chair with a book and a brandy. Jack Du Brul lives in Burlington, Vermont.

I don't recommend A lot of books but do check out the thriller/adventure "Tourist in the Yucatan" you wont be disappointed!
This is the 4th book in this series that I have read and it dawned on me that all these books are very very similiar. And it's just not that the same characters are involved, the ship is the same etc etc.
With unlimited money, state of beyond the art technology, contacts with everyone in power throughout the world and the world's best luck the drama that I experienced in the first few books just isn't there anymore as I know they will prevail in the end.
So I'd recommend picking iup a couple of books ion this series but then move on.
Exciting for the first few books, but then repetitive, other than the antagonist, each book thereafter
