Description
An exhilarating new adventure in the New York Times—bestselling Oregon Files series.For four novels, Clive Cussler has charted the exploits of the Oregon, a covert ship completely dilapidated on the outside but on the inside packed with sophisticated weaponry and intelligence-gathering equipment. Captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo and manned by a crew of former military and spy personnel, it is a private enterprise, available for any government agency that can afford it–and now Cussler sends the Oregon on its most extraordinary mission yet.The crew has just completed a top secret mission against Iran in the Persian Gulf when they come across a cruise ship adrift at sea. Hundreds of bodies litter its deck, and, as Cabrillo tries to determine what happened, explosions rack the length of the ship. Barely able to escape with his own life and that of the liner's sole survivor, Cabrillo finds himself plunged into a mystery as intricate–and as perilous–as any he has ever known and pitted against a cult with monstrously lethal plans for the human race . . . plans he may already be too late to stop."Readers will burn up the pages following the blazing action and daring exploits of these men and women and their amazing machines" (Publishers Weekly).From the Compact Disc edition.

Plague Ship
fullDescription
An exhilarating new adventure in the New York Times—bestselling Oregon Files series.
For four novels, Clive Cussler has charted the exploits of the Oregon, a covert ship completely dilapidated on the outside but on the inside packed with sophisticated weaponry and intelligence-gathering equipment. Captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo and manned by a crew of former military and spy personnel, it is a private enterprise, available for any government agency that can afford it–and now Cussler sends the Oregon on its most extraordinary mission yet.
The crew has just completed a top secret mission against Iran in the Persian Gulf when they come across a cruise ship adrift at sea. Hundreds of bodies litter its deck, and, as Cabrillo tries to determine what happened, explosions rack the length of the ship. Barely able to escape with his own life and that of the liner's sole survivor, Cabrillo finds himself plunged into a mystery as intricate–and as perilous–as any he has ever known and pitted against a cult with monstrously lethal plans for the human race . . . plans he may already be too late to stop.
"Readers will burn up the pages following the blazing action and daring exploits of these men and women and their amazing machines" (Publishers Weekly).

        April 14, 2008
        In the dependably entertaining if less than top-notch fifth Oregon Files thriller from bestseller Cussler and Du Brul (after Skeleton Crew
        ), Capt. Juan Cabrillo, who heads the Corporation, a covert military company for hire, and the multifaceted crew of the Oregon
        , a high-tech ship disguised to look like a tramp steamer, take on a group known as the Responsivists. The Responsivists publicly espouse a program of global population control, but are secretly planning a devastating attack on the human race utilizing a virulent virus found aboard an ancient ship that may be Noah’s Ark. The authors are up to their usual high standards when in fighting mode, though the chief villain, the doctor who heads the Responsivists, falls short of Juan’s billing as “the single-most-evil human being I have ever met.” Readers may wish that next time out the bad guys put up more of a struggle.

        Cussler, writing with Du Brul, offers the fifth installment of his Oregon series, which follows the exploits of a covert ship that does the government's dirty work as long as the price is right. Scott Brick reads with a flare of the theatrical, at times sending his voice soaring, up, up, up in an attempt to create tension and excitement. Brick's characters are over-the-top and his pronunciation is slightly unbelievable. His reading is certainly entertaining but at odds with Cussler's staid prose that is layered with rich detail and deeply researched information. The story flows well and draws the audience in, but Brick's theatrical performance distracts. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 14).

      • content: Jason Culp's masterful use of accents sets the scene when Captain Juan Cabrillo of the OREGON boards a cruise ship adrift at sea. He finds the ship littered with hundreds of dead bodies, except for one survivor in sick bay. With dramatic delivery and timing, Culp captures the rising tension when Cabrillo learns of the Responsivists, a group intent on controlling the world's population. Their diabolical plan is to sterilize the world with a virus strain that may link back to Noah's Ark. The virus, an archaic but powerful weapons-delivery system originally intended for dispersal by Stalin, is thwarted by Cabrillo. Undaunted, the Responsivists' new plot is almost foolproof. Authentic sound effects complete this action-packed audio. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
