Description
Chairman Juan Cabrillo and the rest of the Corporation's mercenaries fight to stop a corrupt activist group from unleashing a viral attack in this #1 New York Times-bestselling adventure from the Oregon Files.Captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo and manned by a crew of former military and spy personnel, the Oregon is a private enterprise, available for any government agency that can afford it. They've 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

        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.

        Two different narrators tackle abridged and unabridged versions of Plague Ship
        —with strikingly different results.
        Plague Ship
        Clive Cussler
        with Jack Du Brul, read by Jason Culp. Penguin Audio
        , abridged, five CDs, 6.5 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-0-14-314309-3

        The fifth installment of Cussler's Oregon series is a thrilling and wildly entertaining adventure in which the top-secret ship comes across a cruise ship in the Atlantic with a cargo of dead passengers littering its deck. Jason Culp reads with a gritty, darker tone geared toward the more mysterious aspects of the tale. The result is a truly involving experience in which the characters are realistic and well played, the atmosphere is dark and brooding, and the story itself unfolds steadily. The only downside here is that crucial plot points tossed overboard for this abridgement take away from the story as a whole. Nevertheless, Culp manages to command his audience and successfully guides them through the treacherous waters. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 14).

        Cussler and coauthor Du Brul ("Skeleton Coast") lurch through Cussler's latest high-tech fantasy, dropping dozens of subplots into a blender and printing the result. The chief threat? Bad guys intent on sterilizinghalf the world use a trendy zero population/family planning group as cover. Into the breach steps Juan Cabrillo, his supership "Oregon", and his loyal cast of special-ops wizards. Did I mention Noah's Ark? So does Cussler. Readers will ask for him by name, so buy accordingly. [See Prepub Alert, Z"LJ" 2/1/08.]
