This book is one of the most convoluted stories I've ever read authored by Cussler...it actually feels like several stories all mashed together. The plot progresses from impossible crisis to solution to resolution in a few pages. In fact, the villain is not revealed until about 2 hours left to go in the 13 hour listen. The rest of the book is just surfing from unimaginable crisis to unthinkable catastrophe. ( )

Amazon Description: 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 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 the United States has ever known.


I am so glad that a challenge finally made me try to read this series Oregon Files, it has great characters, larger than life heroes with the intelligence to match, and a riveting story. Great action! ( )

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 U.S. security that the country has ever known.

My Review:
Every book of the Oregon Files is a thrilling adventure and The Jungle was no different. it is a fast paced plot with plenty of action which makes for a page turner until the end. I really enjoy all the characters in this series and the addition of Lawless with his military capabilities will be a great reward to the crew. It was exciting to visit China again and I enjoyed the story of the crystals and their use in 1281 A.D. I look forward to the next book in the series and I would highly recommend this series to those who love adventure thrillers. ( )

The story is drawn with colorful word pictures of the surroundings...the jungle... the water travel... and the cast of characters. There are bizarre and unlikely puzzles that keep the reader on the edge until the very last word...and the last word is uttered by a surprising guest. Overall a perfect addition to this amazing series. ( )
