Skeleton Coast is Clive Cussler's fourth Oregon Files adventure, featuring captain Juan Cabrillo. 1896: HMS Rove vanishes in a shocking storm off the African coast. Aboard is a fortune in stolen diamonds...Present day: Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the covert super-ship Oregon have just escaped a double-cross on the Congo River when they come to the aid of Sloane Macintyre - looking for some long lost treasure. Sloane's story is strange and when Juan checks it out, he finds that there's much more than just diamonds at stake on the African coast. A deranged militant and his followers plan to unleash a devastating power that will kill millions and cause worldwide havoc. Soon the Oregon is steaming to the rescue - but some forces are so extreme that even a hero like Juan Cabrillo thinks twice before getting involved...The number-one bestseller Clive Cussler, author of the thrilling Dirk Pitt novels Crescent Dawn and Atlantis Found, and co-author Jack Du Brul tell a gripping story of treasure hunting and treachery in the fourth novel of the adventure series The Oregon Files. Skeleton Coast follows Sacred Stone and Dark Watch. Praise for Clive Cussler: 'The guy I read' Tom Clancy Bestselling author Clive Cussler has kept readers on the edges of their seats for four decades with his thrilling action novels. As well as the Oregon Files series there are also the NUMA Files, the Dirk Pitt stories (which started it all), the Isaac Bell adventures and the Fargo series. The other titles in the Oregon Files are: Golden Buddha, Sacred Stone, Dark Watch, Plague Ship, Corsair, The Silent Sea and The Jungle and are all available in Penguin paperback.
The book came in bad shape, most of the cover was missing and the pages torn and wrinkled. The book itself was good.

If this combination of authors ever come up with a bad book, I will find it impossible to believe. Both of them are fine authors, and Cussler has been a favorite since he began, many books ago. This is an excellent plot and it moves along at a pace that only Cussler readers understand. I have almost all of the books that Cussler and his associate authors have written. I am losing my vision, and want to finish them all prior to having the please of reading them, over hearing them. I hope these two produce more books, and when they are printed, I will read them. My thanks to both men, who write the way I would, that is if I could. Grandpa Ron... P.S. I have yet to read a Cussler book that I would not rate five stars.
