Praise for The Silent Sea:

"Fast-paced and a lot of fun-delivers the wallop Cussler's fans have come to expect."
-Booklist

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.

great read! read it in 4 days (and I am a slow reader). I've read a dozen cussler books and all are fast, asy and enjoyable reading. action, action, action. 1st time that I have read a book with this central character - juan cabrillio. good to occasionally change characters to add some fresh elements. juan and his crew are like a team of 007's/commandoes. if you are a fan of cussler, then you will enjoy it. if you are new to cussler, be prepared to lay aside some time, because you won't want to put down his books until you've reached the back cover.

This story is unfortunately missed named. The jungle is only one minor scene in the whole yarn, and it would have been aptly named `The Rescue' due to the five recues that take place in it. While I'm at it, I will critic Cussler for his lack of foreshadowing; that is his tendency to have things appear out of the blue. Need a hi speed boat to get away from the bad guys? Then the boat the good guys are on is high speed.

What I liked about this story is Cussler's usual fast paced action, knowledge of high tech and other types of equipment, and the clever plot twist at the very end. During the special op to knock out the secret evil centre and save the day, the good old US of A, and the world, the quantum computer acts rational and does something unusual. You have to like the genre to enjoy this book. It does entertain and keep you reading more and more well into the night.

Format: Hardcover
"Flash forth lightning and scatter them;
Shoot out Your arrows and destroy them.
Stretch out Your hand from above;
Rescue me and deliver me out of great waters,
From the hand of foreigners,
Whose mouth speaks lying words,
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood." -- Psalm 144:6-8 (NKJV)

Most thrillers follow one of these formulas:

1. Superhuman heroes attempt to overcome impossible odds and succeed.
2. Heroes use advanced technology and quick wits to surprise and defeat overconfident opponents.
3. A global plot to dominate the world threatens life as we know it and a small band is all that can stop what's going on.
4. Wisecracking heroes take on tough tasks with panache.

What happens in each case is that the heroes resemble Superman more than any real person . . . combined with an ability to rarely make a mistake. The fun comes from either the surprising ways that the heroes succeed or the appeal of their swagger as they do.

After you've read hundreds of such stories, you yearn for something a little different . . . and that's what Clive Cussler has delivered with Jack Du Brul in The Jungle. Be prepared for some occasional heroic fallibility. It makes for a nice change of pace, without slowing down the action . . . which involves a lot of different venues and story lines.

Each aspect of the story brought at least some tiny surprises that brought a smile to my face.

Why, then, didn't I rate the story at five stars? As in some of the Dirk Pitt novels, the authors' technological imagination goes a little too far to be fully credible. Instead, you lose your ability to stay immersed in the novel from time to time . . . and find yourself watching the story unfold.

I have always been a Clive Cussler fan. As always, reading this book brought adventure and enjoyment. Sometimes Clive's books are described in such a way that I feel I am part of the action. Is that neat or what? Only one other author has been able to do that with me.
