Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon face their toughest challenge yet when a violent bank heist during the Monaco Grand Prix decimates the Corporation's accounts. To get the money back, Juan joins forces with an old friend from his days in the CIA, so they can track down a rogue hacker and a ruthless former Ukrainian naval officer. It is only after the hunt begins that the enormity of the plan comes into focus: The bank theft is just the first step in a plot that will result in the deaths of millions and bring the world's economies to a standstill. The catalyst for the scheme? A stunning document stolen during Napoleon's disastrous invasion of Russia. But 200 years later, it may be the thing that brings Europe to its knees.

Swashbuckling Adventure story
The book opened up in the Sahara desert with Juan Cabrillo, Eddie and Link infiltrated into a terrorist group. The terrorists found a downed USAF Strategic Command plane from the Cold War with nuclear weapons aboard. No sooner has the team dealt with this problem, and then they find someone has stolen the corporation’s money that was in an offshore account. They find out they’re up against a skilled and cunning foe with a very sophisticated yacht with weaponry more advanced than that of the Oregon. I cannot believe it: a member of the Oregon crew is killed. Then suddenly the story shifts to Napoleon escaping from St. Helena and then back to modern day hunting for Napoleon’s diary of the failed Russian campaign.
The book is well written with lots of a variety of types, land, sea and air action. The pace is very fast. I have always enjoyed Cussler’s method of intertwining the modern day story to a not so well known fact of history. I enjoy the various Oregon crew members with a surprising range of skills and talent. The variety of characters keeps the story from getting dull. As always Scott Brick does an excellent job narrating the story.

Non stop action and Scott Brick completely immerses you in the action so you feel like you're watching it live.. I LOVE the Oregon files... Wish they could write one every month... But the research the authors have to put in makes it worth the wait.. I've listened or read every one of Clive Cussler's novels.. And I dare say there's not a better fan of his out there!
