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:

"Subduing a band of Somali pirates is just the warmup for Juan Cabrillo and the valiant crew of the supership Oregon in the rousing sixth Oregon Files thriller from bestseller Cussler and Du Brul (after Plague Ship). Cabrillo's main mission is to locate U.S. Secretary of State Fiona Katamora, who's been kidnapped en route to important international peace talks in Libya. Katamora's abductor, the terrorist Al-Jama, wishes to disrupt the talks. 'It is only through conflict that we are truly the beings that Allah intended,' Al-Jama asserts. A major subplot involves the search for an ancient corsair, a sailing ship that contains writings that could bring peace to the Mideast. The hunt for a pendant known as the Jewel of Jerusalem and a mystery surrounding Al-Jama's actual identity also figure in, but these are minor diversions. As ever, the principal draw for the series' faithful readers is the clever, indefatigable Cabrillo along with his merry band of tough, tech-savvy, fighting men and women."

DIck Clark, March 25, 2009 (view all comments by DIck Clark)
Cussler is one of my all time favorite adventure writers. "Raise The Titanic" being my introduction to the genre back in highschool. However, in recent years I have not been that happy with the Dirk Pitt Series or the other spin off books. The one Exception being the "Oregon Files" Series. And this I attribute to Jack Du Brul (do check out his Philip Mercer series, the most recent of which is Havoc). Corsair is another fun entertaining read in the series. An adventure that mixes history with a great thrill ride! If you are not happy with recent Cussler adventure books, you still should give this one a chance. For a rough little gem of a thriller I also have to recommend the thriller cult hit "A Tourist In The Yucatan."
