Description
Ex-CIA ship captain Juan Cabrillo leads the crew of the Oregon on a quest to save a kidnapped politician in this #1 New York Times-bestselling adventure series. 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.

        January 26, 2009
        Subduing a band of Somali pirates is just the warmup for Juan Cabrillo and the valiant crew of the supership Oregon
        in the rousing sixth Oregon Files thriller from bestseller Cussler and Du Brul (after Plague Ship
        ). Cabrillo’s main mission is to locate U.S. Secretary of State Fiona Katamora, who’s been kidnapped en route to important international peace talks in Libya. Katamora’s abductor, the terrorist Al-Jama, wishes to disrupt the talks. “It is only through conflict that we are truly the beings that Allah intended,” Al-Jama asserts. A major subplot involves the search for an ancient corsair, a sailing ship that contains writings that could bring peace to the Mideast. The hunt for a pendant known as the Jewel of Jerusalem and a mystery surrounding Al-Jama’s actual identity also figure in, but these are minor diversions. As ever, the principal draw for the series’ faithful readers is the clever, indefatigable Cabrillo along with his merry band of tough, tech-savvy, fighting men and women.

        April 27, 2009
        When a plane carrying the U.S. secretary of state, en route to a Middle East peace conference, disappears over Libya, the techno-wizards aboard the supership Oregon
        try to track it down and recover any survivors. Juan Cabrillo and his crew discover a terrorist presence that reaches to the highest levels of the Libyan government. This exciting story translates well into audio format, and Scott Brick's performance enhances the action-adventure. His moderate tone makes for easy listening, and his clarity renders the scientific and political elements—and intrigues—at the heart of the book comprehensible. Brick has narrated previous Cussler novels and his renditions of the characters will be familiar to fans, who will find themselves in the company of old friends. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Jan. 26).
