Product Description

Product Description

Mirage is the new heart-in-the-mouth adventure thriller in the Oregon Files from Clive Cussler.



October 1943. A US Navy warship vanishes at sea off the coast of Philadelphia. Its disappearance was rumoured to have been a result of a classified military experiment into the effects of electromagnetic radiation. The story has long since been considered a hoax.



But Juan Cabrillo and his colleagues aboard the top-secret spy ship Oregon aren't convinced.



Now, a powerful new weapon is for sale - one linked to genius inventor Nikola Telsa, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the original Philadelphia experiment? Are his notes in the hands of his enemies?



As Cabrillo and his crew race to unearth the truth they discover that stakes are dangerously high. And it may already be too late . . .



Offering an irresistible combination of breakneck pace and audacious plotting that Clive Cussler has made his own, Mirage is state-of-the-art action-adventure. The ninth title in the Oregon Files series, it is preceded by The Jungle and The Silent Sea.

More About the Author

Clive Cussler began writing novels in 1965 and published his first work featuring his continuous series hero, Dirk Pitt(R), in 1973. His first non-fiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York, considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. 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.

Cussler is an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, (NUMA) a 501C3 non-profit organization (named after the fictional Federal agency in his novels) that dedicates itself to preserving American maritime and naval history. He and his crew of marine experts and NUMA volunteers have discovered more than 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites including the first submarine to sink a ship in battle, the Confederacy's Hunley, and its victim, the Union's Housatonic; the U-20, the U-boat that sank the Lusitania; the Cumberland, which was sunk by the famous ironclad, Merrimack; the renowned Confederate raider Florida; the Navy airship, Akron, the Republic of Texas Navy warship, Zavala, found under a parking lot in Galveston, and the Carpathia, which sank almost six years to-the-day after plucking Titanic's survivors from the sea.

In September, 1998, NUMA - which turns over all artifacts to state and Federal authorities, or donates them to museums and universities - launched its own web site for those wishing more information about maritime history or wishing to make donations to the organization.

In addition to being the Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is also a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London. He has been honored with the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration.

Cussler's books have been published in more than 40 languages in more than 100 countries. His past international bestsellers include Pacific Vortex, Mediterranean Caper, Iceberg, Raise the Titanic, Vixen 03, Night Probe, Deep Six, Cyclops, Treasure, Dragon, Sahara, Inca Gold, Shock Wave, Flood Tide, Atlantis Found, Valhalla Rising, Trojan Odyssey, Black Wind, Treasure of Kahn and Arctic Drift (the last three with his son, Dirk Cussler) as well as The Chase; the nonfiction books The Sea Hunters, The Sea Hunters II and Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt (R) Revealed; the NUMA(R) Files novels Serpent, Blue Gold, Fire Ice, White Death, Lost City, Polar Shift, The Navigator and Medusa (written with Paul Kemprecos); and the Oregon Files novels Sacred Stone and Golden Buddha (written with Craig Dirgo) and Dark Watch, Skeleton Coast, Plague Ship and Corsair (written with Jack Du Brul).

Clive Cussler lives in Arizona.

The best of the Oregon Files to date. Fast paced and gripping. Cussler once again has stolen my weekend and left me with an impossible work deadline! Not that I mind... this book is a bloody good read and worth every penny. I hope work is well underway on the next one.

Another great page-turner from the master novelist himself: Clive Cussler.

Health warning: do not start reading this book late at night if you have an early start the next morning!

In his characteristic style, Cussler expertly blends together several plots, fast paced action, and an array of unexpected twists, to form another page-turning novel that's hard to put down. It's a compelling and compulsive read.

I can't wait for the next one in the series!

It's like going back to meet an old friend! The book is well paced and has all the characters you come to expect in an Oregon File novel. Still quite expensive for the kindle version, but well worth reading!
