For five novels, Clive Cussler has brought readers into the world of the Oregon, a seemingly dilapidated ship packed with sophisticated equipment, and captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo. And now the Oregon and its crew face their biggest challenge yet.
Corsairs are pirates, and pirates come in many different varieties. There are the pirates who fought off the Barbary Coast in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the contemporary pirates who infest the waters of Africa and Asia, and the pirates . . . who look like something else.
When the U.S. secretary of state’s plane crashes while bringing her to a summit meeting in Libya, the CIA, distrusting the Libyans, hire 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.
“Readers will burn up the pages following the blazing action and daring exploits of these men and women and their amazing machines,” writes Publishers Weekly of the Oregon Files series. And they’ll do it once again, with Corsair.
If you've read cushier before, you won't be disappointed.
However, the process to bring this book electronically has caused passages of text to disappear! Does this book get read before release to the library?
Looking for an update to fix missing text! I have also seen other books with the same issues!
Worth the ride
Excellent book and hard to put down. I found myself feeling the thrill of the ride. I have a new appreciation of Cussler the author.
I started this book about a year ago.... Put it aside and started up only recently. The setting and story line are amazingly relevant to what's happening today in Libya. As always, Cusslers plot development is masterful and his characters are great fun to get to know. If you're a Cussler fan, this is a must read. If you've never read Cussler, this would be a great start, and your first of many.
