Publisher's Summary

The author of the bestselling NUMA and Dirk Pitt series returns with a novel of adventure and intrigue featuring his unbeatable hero of the high seas: Juan Cabrillo.Cabrillo and his motley crew aboard the clandestine spy ship Oregon have made a very comfortable and very dangerous living working for high-powered Western interests. But their newest clients have come from the Far East to ask for Cabrillo's special brand of assistance. They're a consortium of Japanese shipping magnates whose fortunes are being threatened by brutal pirates trolling the waters of Southeast Asia.Normally, such attacks on the high seas are limited to smaller ships and foreign-owned yachts-easy targets on the open ocean. Now, however, giant commercial freighters are disappearing. But when Cabrillo confronts the enemy, he learns that the pirates' predations hide a deadly international conspiracy-a scheme of death and slavery that Juan Cabrillo is going to blow out of the water.

Dark Watch

This is another story about the ship Oregon and crew. Covers pirates to human trafficking to banking. Fast pace and lots of action. Tom Wopat did a good job reading the story. The only downside to the book was that is was abridged. They did a good job with the abridgment as I could keep track from one action and problem to the next. Book was not long enough but good for a short book between longer or more complicated books. Worth the read.

- Jean "I am an avid eclectic reader."

could have been good.

though im a huge clive cussler fan, getting Tom Wopat to act out the book was a horrible choice. I like Tom as a tv actor. But, he's no Scott Brick when it comes to reading a book. For the most part I couldn't get involved in the book because he was just reading using very little voice characterization. the female part was terrible. like I said. I like Tom and though good for tv only. I wish I could get my money back because it wasn't worth it. Sorry Clive I'm huge fan of yours. But, not the best choice.
