Sembra una missione di routine per Juan Cabrillo e l'equipaggio della Oregon. L'ipertecnologica nave si trova sul fiume Congo per concludere un accordo con l'esercito rivoluzionario del Paese. Ma una missione all'apparenza tranquilla si trasforma in un'avventura senza respiro... Tutto ha inizio quando Cabrillo intercetta il mayday di un'altra imbarcazione, a bordo della quale si trovano due esploratori sulle tracce del Rove, un vascello scomparso un secolo prima di fronte alle spiagge del deserto del Kalahari. Qualcuno sta ostacolando la loro ricerca e li vuole morti. Perché? E come considerare la storia che uno dei due, l'affascinante Sloane Macintyre, racconta a Cabrillo riguardo a un attacco di giganteschi serpenti di metallo in un tratto di mare al largo della Namibia?

This was the 4th book in the Oregon series. I did enjoy the story lines but some of the technical stuff is way over my head. I like the crew members very much and find the characters very interesting. I will continue reading on as I want to see what else Juan Cabrillo and crew will get involved it.
The late, great Clive Cussler lives on through his amazing adventure novels. With plenty of excitement and intensity, this is a prime example of the author's skilled writing.
Chairman of the Corporation Juan Cabrillo and his mercenary crew steer the Oregon into battle against a militant leader and his cult-like followers.. To be honest the final confrontation with the main antagonist was weak and I expected a lot more. Also his "cult like" followers were only cult like in Leggi tutto
I am definitely hooked on the Oregon Files series now. As always, fast paced with some historical background. I can’t wait for the next one!
The two best adventure writers currently drawing breath deliver another superb adventure from the Oregon Files. This book bears the distinct stamp of both Cussler and duBrul, which means a great read for us! Though I kind of miss the old format of the Corporation pulling off a multi-pronged heist of Leggi tutto
Skeleton Coast is the fourth book of the series, The Oregon Files . In this installment, the crew of The Oregon take on African rebel armies, eco terrorists, "giant snakes" and search for a cache of lost diamonds - all in a day's work. As usual, this is a fun, adrenaline-filled story with lots of hig Leggi tutto
Amazing book! I love that it goes into depth of the main characters but also stays true to Clive Cussler fashion of hard hitting adventure, action, and a bit of off hand humor. I could not put it down and even have the audio version so I can listen to it at work.
What a difference a single author can make to a series. I’ve made it no secret that I couldn’t really stand the first 2 books in the Oregon series. Whether Cussler bit off way more than he could chew, or didn’t care what Dirgo put out under his name, both Golden Buddha and Sacred Stone were huge disa Leggi tutto
Good plot and storyline line I really enjoy this series. Each book seems to get better. I like the the author blends the plots together
