Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For five novels, Clive Cussler has brought readers into the world of the Oregon, a seemingly dilapidated ship packed with sophisticated equipment, and captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo. And now the Oregon and its crew face their biggest challenge yet.

Corsairs are pirates, and pirates come in many different varieties. There are the pirates who fought off the Barbary Coast in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the contemporary pirates who infest the waters of Africa and Asia, and the pirates . . . who look like something else.

When the U.S. secretary of state’s plane crashes while bringing her to a summit meeting in Libya, the CIA, distrusting the Libyans, hire Juan Cabrillo to search for her, and their misgivings are well founded. The crew locates the plane, but the secretary of state has vanished. It turns out Libya’s new foreign minister has other plans for the conference, plans that Cabrillo cannot let happen. But what does it all have to do with a two- hundred- year-old naval battle and the centuries-old Islamic scrolls that the Libyans seem so determined to find? The answers will lead him full circle into history, and into another pitched battle on the sea, this time against Islamic terrorists, and with the fate of nations resting on its outcome.

“Readers will burn up the pages following the blazing action and daring exploits of these men and women and their amazing machines,” writes Publishers Weekly of the Oregon Files series. And they’ll do it once again, with Corsair.

Review:

"Sam and Remi Fargo, multimillionaire treasure hunters, prove they can wield automatic weapons as well as they can metal detectors in the fun fourth Fargo novel (after 2011's The Kingdom) from bestseller Cussler and new collaborator Perry. A German archeologist friend, Albrecht Fischer, calls on the couple for help in excavating an ancient battlefield he's discovered in Hungary. A lucky find on one of the dead soldiers buried in the battlefield leads to a succession of five treasure troves hidden by Attila the Hun, culminating in his legendary tomb. Also searching for the tomb and treasure is greedy Arpad Bako, a wealthy businessman who runs a medical factory and considers himself a direct descendent of Attila the Hun. The many treasures shift back and forth between Bako and the Fargos while other villains seek to stop Sam and Remi. This adventure series stands as one of the crown jewels in the Cussler empire. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

The outstanding new Fargo adventure from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author.

 

 

There are many rumors about the bay off Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. Some say it was the site of the lost empire of the Solomon king and that great treasure lies beneath the waters. Others say terrible things happened here, atrocities and disappearances at the hands of cannibal giants, and those who venture there do not return. It is cursed.

Which is exactly what attracts the attention of husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo. How could they resist? Clues and whispers lead them on a hunt from the Solomons to Australia to Japan, and what they find at the end of the trail is both wonderful and monstrous—and like nothing they have ever seen before.

Synopsis:

The #1 New York Times bestselling author once again brings to life the heroism and guts that have made Dirk Pitt a legend in the world of adventure…

A potential breakthrough discovery to reverse global warming…a series of unexplained deaths in British Columbia…a rash of international incidents between the United States and a longtime ally that threatens to erupt into a shooting war.  NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk. Jr. and Summer, know there's a connection—but they also know they have very little time to find it.

 

Their only real clue might just be a mysterious silvery mineral traced to a long-ago expedition in search of the fabled Northwest Passage. But no one survived from that doomed mission. And if Pitt and his buddy Al Giordino aren't careful, the very same fate may await them…and the world.
