Una strana ondata di pirateria sta dilagando nel mare del Giappone: a essere presi di mira non sono piccole navi e yacht turistici, ma enormi mercantili, che «spariscono» letteralmente insieme al carico e all'equipaggio. Pirati che hanno unito le forze? O una nuova centrale di terrorismo internazionale che ha trovato un modo di finanziarsi? Juan Cabrillo, capitano della Oregon, viene chiamato in azione. Ma quando, insieme al suo equipaggio di uomini e donne superaddestrati e pronti a tutto, si confronta direttamente con il nemico, scopre che la posta in gioco è molto più alta e che a muovere le fila di tutto sono figure davvero insospettabili.

4.5 stars The start was fairly disjointed despite the multiple story threads but it ended up coming together very nicely in the end
This is the 3rd book of the Oregon Files series by Clive Cussler. With this book, he has changed his co-author from Craig Dirgo to Jack duBrul. While the first two books were good, this one was so much better. The writing style was stronger, the plot had more tension and there was significantly more Leggi tutto
