Book Description

Clive Cussler's fifth Oregon Files novel, Plague Ship, pits Juan Cabrillo against a deadly adversary.

In a Norwegian glacier during World War Two a Nazi officer makes an extraordinary discovery - the most legendary ship of all time . . .

Sixty years later Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon - a top secret state of the art military vessel disguised as a heap of junk - reap the terrible rewards of this find. In the Persian Gulf they encounter a cruise ship full of the dead and the dying. While attempting a rescue, the stricken liner erupts into a fireball. Cabrillo escapes with his life, and one survivor.

When Cabrillo decides to probe deeper into this mystery, he finds a powerful cult obsessed with the end of the world. It is a discovery that sees the Oregon and her crew racing against time to prevent a sinister madman from using the secrets of the past to to destroy the future . . .

Plague Ship is a high-stakes, high-seas adventure you won't be able to put down. The number-one bestseller Clive Cussler, author of the thrilling Dirk Pitt novels Arctic Drift andValhalla Rising, and co-author Jack Du Brul are back with their most exciting Juan Cabrillo assignment yet in the fifth novel of adventure series The Oregon Files, Plague Ship.

    I have to admit I'm a fan of Cussler's Oregon-set tales. Led by ex-spy Juan Cabrillo, they're peopled with such an interestingly diverse cast (even more so than his Kurt Austin or Dirk Pitt novels) and revolve around such an ingenious 'base' that they have huge possibilities. Those possibilities to go pretty much anywhere and do some of the most imaginative stuff conceivable are exercised to the full here. Cabrillo and his team of do-gooder mercenary types with teeth are up against a rolicking adventure, filled with gruesome horrors, a barmy evil plan, and some fascinatingly loopy bad guys. The chases and fight scenes are tense and exciting and the set-pieces are expertly handled.
    I was pleasantly surprised - but not shocked - as I had found Cussler's first teaming with Jack Du Brul (Dark Watch) his best novel in years. Skeleton Coast wasn't quite as stunning, but still good. But this cemented the Cussler/Du Brul teaming for me as a pairing of true rip-roaring excitement and talent.
    This is by no means intended as serious, entirely believable fiction. Cussler's novels are about maniacs, impossibly noble and daring heroes, and insane megalomaniacal plots. As such, they're entertaining guilt-free relief from the real-world - pure turn off and enjoy relaxation.
    As that, this book doesn't just cut the mustard - it whips it up freshly, puts itself in a pretty bowl and orders you a steak. Great entertainment and highly recommended.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Cussler (and partner) at his best 14 Dec. 2011
    No one writes maritime adventures better than Cussler. Even the fact that this is a collaboration with a writing partner (shades James Patterson) does not detract from the thrills and excitement of this book. In fact, in some ways, the extra pair of hands seems to add a new lease of life. Here they blend ancient legend into high-tech modernity like Adam Palmer in The Moses Legacy. This book is a winner because of the all-round excitement and the brisk pace that the authors manage to keep up for 600 pages. I read it hot on the heels of David Kessler's Hidden Menace (The Dov Shamir adventures) (also with a maritime angle) and it just goes to show that a thriller doesn't have to be short in order to be fast-paced and exciting. I wish I could have given it TEN stars!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Thought this would have been a movie by now.. 11 Sept. 2011
    Great read, for a long(ish) book it kept me interested all the way through. Its the first one of the oregon series that I've read and I will definately read another. I normally try to stick to books of around 300 pages, because im scared i'll get bored before the end, but this one kept me reading and wanting to know more all the way through. This is the 3rd Cussler book Ive read, and Ive enjoyed every one so far.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and engrossing 16 Oct. 2009
    By M. Wake
    Despite some of the negative comments in other reviews I found this book engrossing and enjoyable. The stakes are pretty high, and the Oregon herself features quite prominently. While the large crew fit neatly into their stereotypical roles the characters do move the story along. I finished this in fairly short time but there's a fair amount of entertainment value to be had here.

    it was quite good but the technical stuff I found o.t.t. Also found storyline a bit unbelievable. Ok if one likes that sort of book I suppose. Ending was the best bit not just because it was the end if one gets my meaning! People that like that sort of thing will like it. I like my thrillers a bit more in depth, a bit more subtle. Leaves one wondering!?

    1.0 out of 5 stars Not his best work 2 Sept. 2009
    By Roni
    Have to agree with some of the other reviews this is not Cussler at his best but we keep buying his books - why? Obviously we need some new blood. Have found a writer called Colin Turner, he has two books out there and they are both gripping reads. Move over Cussler my friend!Virgin HunterThe Oil Raider

    5.0 out of 5 stars Technical Wizardry And Gadgetry Galore 6 Nov. 2012
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This is a fast moving plot (with several side ones going on at the same time) All the 'Oregon' stories are the same formula.I love all the technical wizardry and amazing gadgets that Juan Cabrillo and his crew have at their disposal.A good holiday read as per usual.Look forward to the next story in the series which is 'The Corsair'

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic from Clive Cussler 6 May 2009
    A non-stop start to finish Action Thriller from this prolific author, in collaboration with Jack du Brui.
    Even though you know that a lot of the Action is completely implausible it is still enjoyable., A great way to relax and escape from the stresses of every day life ion the real world.
    A great read.
