Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon have undergone many hair-raising adventures before - but never one quite like this. Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Cabrillo and his remarkable men and women must survive them all. A devastating new weapon unleashed in thirteenth-century China ...a daring rescue in the snowbound mountains along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border ...a woman gone missing in the jungles of northern Thailand and Myanmar ...for Cabrillo and company, all of these events will come together - leading to the greatest threat against US security that the country has ever known.

Publishers Weekly, 2011-05-30 The crew of the Oregon is engaged for a rescue mission that takes them deep into the Burmese jungle where the natural perils are hardly more deadly than the manmade ones. Their quest for the missing daughter of a Swiss billionaire, takes them all over the globe-and Juan Cabrillo and crew are caught up in a harrowing race to save the world. This installment in the Oregon Files adventures requires a narrator who can make the most of the drama and suspense without taking it over the top, and Jason Culp is up for the challenge. His voice's rich timbre makes for easy listening, and male characterizations are spot-on. Female voices, however, are not his strong suit: they're either nasal or throaty and make for uncomfortable listening. Fortunately the female dialogue is scant, and this flaw does not detract from what is a fantastical, exciting audiobook. A Putnam hardcover. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Publishers Weekly, 2011-01-24 Juan Cabrillo and his crew of mercenaries engage in one daring rescue operation after another with progressively higher stakes in Cussler's high-octane eighth Oregon Files novel (after The Silent Sea), his sixth collaboration with Du Brul. The rescue of a kidnap victim, an Indonesian teenage boy, from an Afghan village, yields a bonus in the form of MacD Lawless, a former U.S. Army Ranger, who proves of immediate value. Betrayals, more rescues, and escapes follow as one mysterious man seeks world domination using a discovery linked to 13th-century China. Cabrillo's handpicked team members, who operate from their state-of-the-art ship, the Oregon, are the only chance to stop a plot that threatens to bring the U.S. government to its knees. The frenetic action moves from Afghanistan to Singapore and the Burmese jungle with lots of derring-do at sea before climaxing in a surprising locale in a fashion sure to delight series fans. (Mar.)
