Book Description

4 Mar 2010 Oregon Files 7

On 7 December 1941, four brothers exploring a pit on a small island off the coast of Washington state make an extraordinary discovery, only to be interrupted by news of Pearl Harbor.

In the present, Juan Cabrillo, Captain of US spy-ship Oregon, chasing the remnants of a crashed satellite in the Argentine jungle, makes a shocking discovery of his own. His search to untangle the mystery leads him, first, to that small island and its secret, and then much farther back, to an ancient Chinese expedition, and a curse that seems to have survived for over 500 years. If Cabrillo's team is successful in its quest, the reward could be incalculable. If not . . . the only reward is death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cussler 20 Mar 2010
By Hobo
A thoroughly enjoyable rip-roaring read.I have read a number of Cussler novels,some better than others,I had some concerns regarding Cussler co-writing with other authors, but his collaboration with Jack Du Bruhl works very well.
Four brothers embark on an adventure to Pine Island in search of Pirate treasure buried in a deep shaft,little knowing of the tragedy about to unfold. A scientist at a research station in the freezing Antartic is driven to madness. Juan Cabrillo and his team from the "Oregon",search the South American Jungle for a missing satellite,make an interesting find, get involved with a Psychopathic Argentinian and his Special Forces team.An ancient Chinese seagoing expedition.Argentinian and Chinese cooperation also feature. Lots of action, death and destruction. Three stories intrinsically linked which keeps the reader engrossed all the way through. If you enjoy Adventure,escapism and a good read,I can recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 7 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Clive Cussler writes (sometimes in collaboration with others) some of the best Fantasy/Adventure stories ever. I am not going to describe the plot but if you have read Cussler before you will know what to expect. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Light Reading 13 Mar 2012
By Sue
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a good book for a holiday read. Covers a lot of ground in a fairly fast-paced fashion. James Bond style - ie no one could be that lucky / physically perfect etc. But story has enough interest to keep you going to the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cussler disappoints ... 30 May 2010
... but only if you don't want a slam bang rip roaring adventure with lots of blood and guts.
Myself, I prefer Cussler's wild, wonderful and often wacky plotlines and in this book it seems as if the plot started off as a story from the 'NUMA Files' and got hijacked halfway.
The premise is that Argentina has been taken over by a right-wing neo-Nazi junta and an American rocket has just crashed over their border. The Chairman and his crew go hunting for it and, in the process fall over the gondola of a crashed airship, inside of which is the sheleton of the pilot and some papers carefully left on a table. The team decide to take the papers back to their family and are almost killed by an Argentinian Death Squad. From there on, the Chairman and his crew are involved in a desperate effort to stop Argentina annexing Antartica.
We never hear what happened to the passenger(s) on the airship and although the 'Silent Sea' is pivotal to the story, we are told very little about the discovery itself. So,yes, I was disappointed, ...
but what really spoiled the book for me was the comment that, in the past, Argentina had invaded the Maldive Islands. It did? When? What use would a bunch of islands in the north-west of the Indian Ocean be to Argentina? Oh-oh, seems to be a classic example of 'Spellchecker Error'.
People who write a lot ought to be more aware that SPELLCHECKERS LIE. They do so frequently and often and one of the ways in which they do so, is to replace words that they don't know with words that they do. This is a mistake which I don't even think that the authors made, but if they did, the Editor should have caught it.

2.0 out of 5 stars A rushed and careless production. 16 Feb 2014
By Pete
Format:Kindle Edition
What spoilt this book for me was the sloppy editing. If you’re buying a self-published book for 99p off Kindle you might expect a few typos – but if you’re paying rrp 18.99 for a first edition hardback, you expect quality and professionalism. You can barely go 8 pages without a typo – some of them glaring. And not just the editing – the authors made one or two real clangers themselves. Try this for size: (p75)
‘…converging on a levelled-off section of hillside at least two acres across….’
That’s like saying ‘I trod in a puddle that was six gallons deep.’
At another point it became evident that much of the story had been dictated, as a similar sounding word but of completely different and irrelevant meaning had been inserted. Overall the quality of editing gave me the impression of a rushed production.
The story: Usual Cussler production line. Entertaining, plenty of action, technically plausible, but variation on the same old theme. Something gets lost a long time ago; clues lead to its rediscovery today; good guys chase bad guys to find it first; confrontation; good guys win. All very predictable.
Don’t get me wrong – I like Clive Cussler novels. They’re pure escapism and if you don’t mind reading the same plot over and over, with just the settings and some of the characters changed, they’re good fun. However, the sloppy editing in this one spoilt it for me, and for that I give it a 2 star rating.
