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.

Book 3 in the Oregon Files series published 2005. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4. This remark is about to tell you just how long my memory is, as for me, this book felt like ‘Mission Impossible’ meets the ‘A Team’, a mission so impossible that only the A Team could succeed.

Dark Watch , one of the Oregon Files novels, is pretty much what you expect from the cover. Clive Cussler's books are a general type - adventure happens, horrible bad guys do horrible things, upstanding good guys (usually Juan Cabrillo and his crew) do good and risky things to stop them, a few capers Leggi tutto
Good stuff, very short.
4.5 stars, after the second book is questioning whether or not to continue the series, but so glad I did. Such a great story!
I think I am starting to like the Oregon books better than the original Pitt ones. I could totally see their adventures becoming a tv series. It contains a very good cast of characters and real life stories that people could connect to.
4.5 stars The start was fairly disjointed despite the multiple story threads but it ended up coming together very nicely in the end

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
