From The seventh Oregon Files adventure thriller begins on December 7, 1941, when five boys encounter tragedy while looking for buried pirate treasure on a small island off the coast of Washington State. Flash-forward to today: Juan Cabrillo, captain of the Oregon (a high-tech vessel posing as a tramp freighter), is in Argentina, trying to recover a downed NASA satellite. Well, don’t you know, Juan stumbles on something he totally didnĂ‚Â’t expect to find, and soon heĂ‚Â’s chasing after the secrets of an ancient curse that might still be causing trouble. Fast-paced and a lot of fun, the latest Cabrillo novel delivers the wallop CusslerĂ‚Â’s fans have come to expect. Cabrillo himself—he shares his name with a sixteenth-century Portuguese explorer, by the way—makes a fine protagonist, sharp-witted and two-fisted. Considering the Oregon Files novels involve action, exploration, and high-tech gadgetry, itĂ‚Â’s surprising no one has turned them into movies yet. The prolific Cussler, who, like James Patterson, now employs coauthors (Du Brul in this case), is often accused of writing by the numbers, but this time those numbers add up to entertaining fare for high-adventure fans. --David Pitt Product Description The thrilling new adventure from the #1 New York Times- bestselling author. Clive Cussler's tales of the Oregon and its crew-"the clever, indefatigable Juan Cabrillo and his merry band of tough, tech-savvy fighting men and women" (_Publishers Weekly_)-have made fans of hundreds of thousands of readers. But the Oregon's sixth adventure is its most remark­able one yet. On December 7, 1941, five brothers exploring a shaft on a small island off the coast of Washington State make an extraordinary discovery, only to be interrupted by news of Pearl Harbor. In the present, Cabrillo, chasing the remnants of a crashed satellite in the Argentine jungle, stumbles upon a shocking revelation of his own. His search to untangle the mystery leads him, first, to that small island and its secret, and then much farther back, to an ancient Chinese expedition-and a curse that seems to have survived for more than five hundred years. If Cabrillo's team is successful in its quest, the reward could be incalculable. If not . . . the only reward is death.

this was a pretty good book. i'm a fan of his van dorne detective series and thought i'd try one of these too. i wasn't as happy with it and didn't enjoy the writting as much but it was still a really good book. it may be because i'm used to the other and the story was really interesting and cool. takes place for the most part in the arctic, which i love.

What does a treasure pit in Washington, a blimp in Argentina and a sunken Chinese junk in Antarctica have in common? That is the mystery Clive Cussler solves for us in the action packed adventure.

While not my all time favorite of the Cussler novels I've read, it's still an entertaining read and just what Cussler fans desire. Since the characters were introduced to me in a previous novel, this one offered the comfort of familiarity and was as much fun as I expected it would be. It also didn't slip into the 'made-for-TV, unstoppable super hero and bad guy' stereotype. I have to thank the writers for that.

Good read. ( )
