Publisher's Summary

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon return in the extraordinary new novel in the number one New York Times best-selling series by the grand master of adventure.
In 1902 the volcano Mt. Pelée erupts on the island of Martinique, wiping out an entire city of 30,000 - and sinking a ship carrying a German scientist on the verge of an astonishing breakthrough. More than a century later, Juan Cabrillo will have to deal with that scientist's legacy.
During a covert operation, Cabrillo and the crew meticulously fake the sinking of the Oregon - but when an unknown adversary tracks them down despite their planning and attempts to assassinate them, Cabrillo and his team struggle to fight back against an enemy who seems to be able to anticipate their every move. They discover that a traitorous American weapons designer has completed the German scientist's work and now wields extraordinary power, sending the Oregon on a race against time to stop an attack that could lead to one man ruling over the largest empire the world has ever known.

Weak MacGuffin

Typical Cussler book except weakest MacGuffin ever. As usual Scott Brick does great narration, but no matter how much action the lack of being able to suspend belief of main plot device weakens entire book. Really wanted to like the book more being a major Cussler fan. Kept on thinking, "Give me a break"!

Action packed adventure

This is book ten in the Oregon series. I saw an ad for book eleven in the series and discovered I had missed reading book ten. It has been awhile since I read a Cussler book.

This book follows the Cussler tradition of non-stop action. The characters no sooner get out of one predicament than they plunge into another. In this story the book opens in 1902 with the eruption of Mt. Pelé on Martinique then switches to modern times. Lawrence Kensit is attempting to take over the world. Admiral Dayana Ruiz of the Venezuelan Navy is helping him and of course the crew of the Oregon is out to stop both of them.

The book is well written and has all the high tech wizardry that I like about the series. I did notice the style of writing was different and saw there was a change in co-authors from Jack DuBral to Boyd Morrison. Scott Brick preformed his usual excellent job narrating the story. Brick is known as one of the golden voices of audiobook narration. He has won over 50 Earphone Awards and two Audie Awards. Some of his recent awards are the 2016 Best Voice in Science Fiction, 2011 Best Voice in Mystery and Suspense, 2010 Best Voice in Biography and the 2008 Best Voice in Science Fiction. He has also won awards for acting.
