1896: HMS Rove vanishes in a shocking storm off the African coast. Aboard is a fortune in stolen diamonds…Present day: Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the covert super-ship Oregon have just escaped a double-cross on the Congo River when they come to the aid of Sloane Macintyre - looking for some long lost treasure. Sloane’s story is strange and when Juan checks it out, he finds that there’s much more than just diamonds at stake on the African coast. A deranged militant and his followers plan to unleash a devastating power that will kill millions and cause worldwide havoc. Soon the Oregon is steaming to the rescue—but some forces are so extreme that even a hero like Juan Cabrillo thinks twice before getting involved…

    " An African terrorist group working with a European eco-terrorist to create the deadliest storm ever to hit the Americas, this was an amazing book, you cant stop turning the pages "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/8/2014

    " So Far, i like it. De Brul's writing is better than Cussler's but still has Clive's story telling...something gets blown up about every other chapter!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debra Meyer | 1/27/2014

    " Clive Cussler is a good author but he has a habit of writing books within a book and sometimes it gets so confusing that you get the feeling your reading a whole bunch of short stories and by the time you get to the end your kind of getting it but still feel confused. This is one of the most confusing so far of his books I've read and it almost needs a map at each chapter just to help figure it out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicola | 1/21/2014

    " One of my audio books in the car - and it is as good as all of Clive Cusslers others! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samuel | 1/19/2014

    " The usual cheese and ease with Cussler books. Again, fine to read for a trip or some days on the beach. Nothing mind bending, but fun and easy to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 1/16/2014

    " Um...I feel sort of like a jerk doing this. But I have to warn people. I wish someone had warned me. Clive Cussler is CHEESE BALL. His characters, at least the "hero" of his story in this case, are so incredibly beyond believable. They go through days on end of brutal conflicts against man and nature, never sleep a wink, and still come out on top, beating down the bad guy with a whole lot of self-righteous oratory. I get it. You are supposed to suspend your disbelief when you are reading fiction, but this goes beyond the bounds of all reason. And I really don't need Cussler's lecture on moral behavior at the end (don't you just hate it when authors stick their noses into books in an obvious and self-serving manner). I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't just put the book down when I realized how over the top it was. I won't, however, make the mistake of picking up a Cussler novel again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Millerbug | 1/11/2014

    " This book was ok. It wasn't a bad read, but the books are starting to sound the same. This was about the Company fighting ecoterrorists, trying to restore a Nelson Mandella (who just turned 90 today!!) type into government, opposed to a corrupt African government, and a lost ship with a ton of raw diamonds aboard. It all interconnected and turned out all fine in the end. But the book didn't have the pizzaz the others did. If I ever come across the next in the series I'll probably read it, but I'm not in a hurry, for now I'm done with this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/5/2014

    " I really liked this book and will read some more from Cussler. Not a Dirk Pit novel, but similar in nature (he was mentioned in the book). Full of action, some funny parts, and it kept you guessing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay Flick | 12/22/2013

    " I loved how this book went back in time and discussed what happened to the travelers! I also love the main character, he is strong but not arrogant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 12/4/2013

    " Enjoyed this book; held my interest throughout. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob | 11/30/2013

    " Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul have done it again! A great book on the Oregon Files with the Corporation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 10/9/2013

    " Really enjoyed this book and I loved the cameo appearances by Cusslers other leading men - Dirk Pitt and Kurt Austin. Even though this story was written several years ago it really fit for this year since it deals with an oil spill. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rhonda | 8/15/2013

    " The handsome one legged hero, and the lovely amazing heroine, a little to harlequin! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 7/3/2013

    " I got utterly bored in the last 5th of the book (the battle scenes). Plus I didn't like the liberal-bashing -- which was more obvious in this book than in others. Ecoterrorists-bad. People who wear Birkenstocks--Not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Klei | 5/28/2013

    " This was more of a page turner for me than other CC books... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 3/31/2013

    " Excitement, mystery, action...I feel kind of guilty as I started listening to this with my husband and I finished it without him. Lots of action, written like a movie plot, but definitely kept my interest. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patrice Benoit | 1/19/2013

    " The first 75% was good then it got predictable. Still great story but I notice I always enjoy the first half of his books than the 2nd. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 12/19/2012

    " My first Clive Cussler book and defenetley worth the paper its printed on. With plenty of action, and a fantasticly detailed, action-packed finale, despite sometimes seeming rather far-fetched. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 12/16/2012

    " A fun and fast moving story. Those who love adventure with some science mixed with history will enjoy this book about lost diamonds, ships in the sand and crazy environmental scientests. "

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

    " I liked it, but the author is definitely a Man's Man. Lots of paragraphs dedicated to the description of the AK-47 guns in the fight scenes. Fun story though. Love the global warming twist lol. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharron | 5/30/2012

    " Well I've only ever been a fan of the Dirk Pitt books and I hated Kurt Austin so I was pretty sceptical when I was lent this one. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 3/5/2012

    " I think I have a character crush on Juan Cabrillo.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marina | 2/11/2012

    " Love Juan & the gang! On to the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donald Stevens | 2/6/2012

    " First one of this series I have read. A good read. Went through it quickly could not stop turning the pages. "

    " I enjoyed this book. Learned alot about Africa as well as warefare. Action packed and very creative and invovled plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.P. McNeill | 10/6/2011

    " I love the Oregon Files Series and this book filled all my expectations! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 6/29/2011

    " Pretty standard Cussler, pretty much a Micheal Bay movie in book form. Entertaining though, and nice and light. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corry | 6/20/2011

    "
    As most of Clive Cusslers books, this is an adventure, an interesting story of the past to begin with, and then ....into the future. Just a book you start and finish in (almost) one sitting.
    Entertaining.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikem | 6/12/2011

    " One of Cussler's better books in along time. Very entertaining and an easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 6/4/2011

    " Love Juan Cabrillo & the Corporation books (The Oregon Files). This is one the best in the series. Non-stop action. Very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 5/23/2011

    " We are liking this book better than some of Clive Cussler's books. He goes into a lot of detail so listening to his books is sometimes tedious, but this one seemed more interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 5/21/2011

    " One of Clive's better yarns, with a great surprise at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christin | 5/16/2011

    " This is a Tom Clancy, Brad Thor type read, yet completely clean. Not one swear word or adult situation. Although most is cloak and dagger, there is violence, more than my kids would be ready for so age appropriateness be at least older than 12.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 5/16/2011

    " Just another Clive Cussler Thriller where the good guys sweep in and win the battle against unbelievable odds! Just the way I like my stories!
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank | 5/15/2011

    " One of the best in the Oregon Files series. Maybe THE best. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lemonitsa | 5/15/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Phil | 5/10/2011

    " This was an OK light entertainment read. Plenty of ridiculous stuff in it, but enough of a story to keep it decently good. Not much else to say about it... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 5/10/2011

    " Clive Cussler Novels = My Guilty Pleasure. :) "

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.
