Publisher's Summary

For five novels, Clive Cussler has brought listeners into the world of the Oregon, a seemingly dilapidated ship packed with sophisticated equipment, and captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo. And now the Oregon and its crew face their biggest challenge yet.Corsairs are pirates, and pirates come in many different varieties. There are the pirates who fought off the Barbary Coast in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the contemporary pirates who infest the waters of Africa and Asia, and the pirates...who look like something else.When the U.S. secretary of state's plane crashes while bringing her to a summit meeting in Libya, the CIA, distrusting the Libyans, hires Juan Cabrillo to search for her, and their misgivings are well founded. The crew locates the plane, but the secretary of state has vanished. It turns out Libya's new foreign minister has other plans for the conference, plans that Cabrillo cannot let happen.But what does it all have to do with a 200-year-old naval battle and the centuries-old Islamic scrolls that the Libyans seem so determined to find? The answers will lead him full circle into history, and into another pitched battle on the sea, this time against Islamic terrorists, and with the fate of nations resting on its outcome.

Action packed Cussler

This is a really action packed book. I really enjoy Cussler but at some points this was a bit much. Juan did some things that make James Bond look like an amateur. All that being said, if you like Cussler's style and the Oregon Files series, you'll love this. If you haven't read any of the series but like action/espionage you won't be disappointed.

Corsair extrordinare

This was one of the best Clive Cussler books I have read with great relationship of current events and past history. The patriotic and "do the right thing" approach to events allowed my total buy-in and made me feel involved in the adventure.
