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.
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
The two best adventure writers currently drawing breath deliver another superb adventure from the Oregon Files.

Skeleton Coast is my first Cussler book and I'm a bit underwhelmed. It started off quite well with a decent idea of lost diamonds in the desert but as soon as the unbelievably, too-good-to-be-true heroes of the Oregon show up, all credibility went out the window. These guys can go without sleep for d Leggi tutto
I got hooked on Mr Cussler through Dirk Pitt...but that was many years ago. I needed a quick read just for fun and revisited Juan Cabrillo in the Oregon Files series. There are many reviews that will tell you the plot and such, but, you, the prospective reader, just want to know if you needed to read Leggi tutto
