This is Jack Du Brul's first teaming with Clive Cussler, and it's an astonishing debut pairing. I wasn't vastly impressed or excited before by the Oregon files novels, although they had charming and diverse characters and a fascinating central base. However with this pairing, the characters, the Oregon itself and the story have all taken wings, and soar. The pirate raids upon shipping are dangerous and exciting, and when Cabrillo and his crew of wonderfully different characters (at their charismatic best) take them on the book erupts into exciting firefights and high drama. With a darker, edgier slavery sub-plot than expected, this could have unbalanced the story. Instead it adds a dark dramatic edge to the derring do and adventure, and as Cabrillo and co race against time to stop the vicious bad guys it helps to fuel many truly exciting scenes.
The extra edge of danger and determination Du Brul's input seems to have added (when compared to the previous pairing of Cussler and Craig Dirgo for Golden Buddha) made this one of the most exciting Cussler novels in ages for me. Barnstormingly tense, dramatically written and flavoured with blistering action, it really hit the spot in the best possible way.
A must-have without any doubt.

Everyone who reads Cussler should understand that his books are not at all realistic, but then neither are James Bond films. Cussler's books offer boys own escapism, and this is one of the better ones. If you don't want to think too hard and you have some time, then suspend disbelief put your feet up and read this book, it's worth the effort. However i must take exception to Cussler's blatant product placement, if i'd read one more detailed discription of a computer or a watch etc i'd have screamed. Added to this the un- ashamed rip off of charging £10 for an e-book ( re: price set by publisher ) come on mr Cussler you're getting nearly as bad as some of your villains......

Another good read, with plenty of twists - you know the bad guys will lose in the end, but it's fiction after all.

One minor beef with Clive Cussler, he's not always accurate when the action is outside the USA - in this one there's a passage "... children. One born April second and the other March first. Four/two, three/one."

But in Europe the format is "Day"/"Month" - so in this instance they would have got the code wrong as the dates are Two/four and one/three

excellant book, unable to put down, and the story really flowed. The follow up book Skeleton coast carried straight with the action, recommended.

The story cuts back and forth in the great Cussler tradition, bringing various scenarios to a gripping conclusion. A real modern pirate story, fantastic.

I did read this to the end, but I didn't particularly enjoy it. I haven't read any other of Mr. Cussler's books, so it's not necessarily a criticism of him as a writer. However, the problem I had with this particular book was believability - by the time I was two-thirds of the way through I felt like I was reading a Thunderbirds novel.

In the new series the Oregon Files, Cussler introduces a new hero, Juan Cabrillo and his team of mercenaries onboard the old (looking) ship the Oregon. But the cast, plot and storytelling is still pure Cussler at his best!

Dark Watch is number three in a series (so far) of six books about the Oregon and Juan Cabrillo. The books can be read individually, but your probably better of starting with the first book "Golden Buddha", and read on from there.

I have been a great fan of Clive Cussler for many years now, I do not think there are any books left that I have not read, Though I have to say pensioning off Dirk Pitt was a mistake, it has opened up a lot of new avenues for NUMA books.
