When the US 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 two-hundred-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.

    " Another goodie. This one would make a great movie! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 2/9/2014

    " Typical "Oregon Files"...a historical prologue followed by fast action...with that makes it hard to stop turning the pages...parts of the story dealing with Somali pirates is torn from today's headlines...eventually Jaun Cabrillo and his band save the world and some of history's artifacts...a predictable and successful formula...a fun read all around! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meredith | 2/9/2014

    " Too violent, not enough history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Reeser | 2/4/2014

    " Better than average popcorn thriller from Cussler and company. This was more fun than a few of the other Oregon novels. Plenty of action, and not a complex story. Just enough to keep it all rolling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 1/31/2014

    " Light entertaining action packed read with pretty predictable terrorism based plot. As typical of Cussler novels, lots of high tech gizmos and plot twists with a link to some historical event "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 1/25/2014

    " Who can resist Juan Cabrillo and the swarthy men who battle for our freedom, with great technology and dashing good luck. Yes, they overcome all the ills of the world once again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jared | 1/24/2014

    " This was a very enjoyable fast read. "Pulse pounding" from a cynical reader. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clint | 1/18/2014

    " Nice fun pulp fiction from the Clive Cussler family of storytellers "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/18/2014

    " Even though this was an Oregon files book it got back to some old school Clive Cussler. Good guy kicking bad guys butt. Throw in some pirate action and it was a fun read. Not a big fan of the twist on the last pages but oh well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaft | 1/3/2014

    " The books have been getting so much better than before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 12/15/2013

    " a bit violent but more exciting than most of Cussler's others "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn Harris | 11/24/2013

    " Considering that there are more books in this series, I'm fascinated to see how they top this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lianne | 11/19/2013

    " What can I say about Clive Cussler books - adventure, excitement, treasure, bad guys, good guys. He has it all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward | 11/1/2013

    " A lot of action, and the expected accessible and direct writing style both Cussler and Dubrul have. It didn't really feel like a thriller, though, thus the three stars. a bit less of the unexpected other than a few specific unique action scenes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo-Ann Murphy | 10/16/2013

    " Another great Indiana Jones type adventure from Mr. Cussler. Full of archeologists, the desert, booby trapped caves and an ancient treasure play into the modern terrorist activities that emperil the life of the United States Secretary of State. A great quick read with almost non-stop action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Kilburn | 8/26/2013

    " A great action story with improbable heros. A mix of Christianity and Muslim entertwined and a satisfying ending that made me smile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacie | 5/26/2013

    " I love Clive Cussler. This book is thought provoking giving the current situtation in Somolia. I have read and reread many of Cussler's books. I cant get enough........ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 4/6/2013

    " It never ceases to amaze me how Clive Cussler takes that exact same cookie cutter story but each and every one are fresh and keep you guessing. He weaves historic events, with modern events, and some type of archeological find. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 9/26/2012

    " I always look forward to a new Clive Cussler. But, for some reason, this one seemed a little flat to me. I still enjoy the main character of Juan Cabrillo - but the adventures and suspense in this one weren't as intense as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 8/7/2012

    " This book/series (the Oregon Files) reminds me of the fast paced TV thriller series "24". You can hardly catch your breath before something else happens page to page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sus | 7/25/2012

    " Very technical and adventurous-all is well with the world! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mona Fox | 7/22/2012

    " Love Clive Cussler "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick | 5/28/2012

    " Oh come on. People really read this stuff? Might make a good action movie with an unlimited budget for blowing stuff up and killing hapless terrorists, but to read? I think I'm one and done with Cussler, unless anyone out there recommends another of his that is at least slightly plausible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy | 4/20/2012

    " The crew of the Oregon help to bring peace to the Middle East. Nothing out of the ordinary here when it comes to a Clive Cussler novel. Not one of his best, not the worst. A quick and enjoyable summer read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 2/17/2012

    " A nice lite read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delilah Trenaman | 10/18/2011

    " Clive Cussler comes through again. I am trying to read all of his books and i do enjoy them but my favorites are the Dirk Pitt ones. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raymond | 9/26/2011

    " This is REALLY a bloody and imaginative story! It includes some archeological story lines similar to an Indiana Jones novel! It was interesting how the authors link contemporary events to action that happened during early colonial era! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 9/11/2011

    " good. standard cussler but entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick Hughes | 8/29/2011

    " I've never read a Cussler book I haven't liked and this one is no exception. (You do have to suspend disbelief a time or two but still a good read) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan Jordan | 7/30/2011

    " Clive Cussler knows how to spin a nautical tale. This book entertains and provides interesting insights into history. We learn about the Barbary coast and we explore slavery and terrorism. I enjoy listening to the reader, who has a pleasant voice and reads at an appropriate pace. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C | 7/18/2011

    " This book was hysterical. The scenarios were ridiculous, but the action was entertaining as hell. If Michael Bay wrote books, he'd be Clive Cussler. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jack | 6/24/2011

    " The ending was very cheesey to say the least, if I hadn't listened to it on CD I wouldn't have read it. Pass the time away novel about a lost treasure ship and it gets weird from there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stan | 6/24/2011

    " light reading- plenty of less than believable violence, no sex. Very much like Indiana Jones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 6/7/2011

    " I had a hard time getting in to this story for some reason. I liked the concept in general and found some of the correlations intriguing, yet I just couldn't engage in the story as well as I'd hoped. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 5/8/2011

    " Most of the Oregon files books are long and complicated like an Oceans 11 plot. This one more than most. In the end the book is good but but it doesn't quite live up to the previous books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 4/11/2011

    " I've never read a Cussler book I haven't liked and this one is no exception. (You do have to suspend disbelief a time or two but still a good read) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fred | 4/3/2011

    " Juan and the rest of the crew of the Oregon save the day once again. Set in Tunisia and Libya, Juan and crew save the life of the American Secretary of State, thwart the plans of the second most-wanted terrorist, and discover a long lost pirate's cache. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 3/30/2011

    " AUDIObook - Well- it was a good swash-buckler until the very end. Then just too sappy and unbelievable (yeah, right - a Beliveable swashbuckler??). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 selenized | 3/23/2011

    " The action sequences were really cliché and there wasn't much mystery as to what was going on. It was also pretty obvious from the get go who the villain would turn out to be, which is probably why it was a good thing that the dramatic reveal appears to have been left on the editors table. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raymond | 2/21/2011

    " This is REALLY a bloody and imaginative story! It includes some archeological story lines similar to an Indiana Jones novel! It was interesting how the authors link contemporary events to action that happened during early colonial era! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ranadok | 12/28/2010

    " A big dumb action movie of a book. Emphasis on the dumb. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nance | 12/2/2010

    " Very dificult to follow. Too may things going on at one time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 10/20/2010

    " I like the characters, I like that he has women that are strong and capable. I will continue reading this author "

About the Author
Author Clive Cussler

Clive Cussler, an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, began writing novels in 1965. He published his first work featuring continuous series hero Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first nonfiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the State University of New York Maritime College considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a PhD thesis and awarded Cussler a doctor of letters degree in May 1997. It was the first time since the college was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed. His books, many of which are New York Times bestsellers, have been published in more than forty languages in more than one hundred countries. He splits his time between Arizona and Colorado.
