In 1902, the volcano Mt. Pelée erupts on the island of Martinique, wiping out an entire city of 30,000 - and sinking a ship carrying a German scientist on the verge of an astonishing breakthrough. More than a century later, Juan Cabrillo will have to deal with that scientist's legacy.
During a covert operation, Cabrillo and the crew meticulously fake the sinking of the Oregon - but when an unknown adversary tracks them down despite their planning and attempts to assassinate them, Cabrillo and his team struggle to fight back against an enemy who seems to be able to anticipate their every move. They discover that a traitorous American weapons designer has completed the German scientist's work, and now wields extraordinary power, sending the Oregon on a race against time to stop an attack that could lead to one man ruling over the largest empire the world has ever known.

Love the Oregon adventures!
Juan Cabrillo never fails to excite and get get the job done! For anyone who enjoys adventure when the pressure is on, the Oregon stories will be right up your street! Full of capers that are against the clock, people who are one step ahead of Juans team. The route he takes to stop them always have you at the edge of your seat in almost impossible circumstances. Excellent book, I can't wait till the next one is released!

Not the usual Cussler standard
Scott Brick tries his hardest to make the book exciting but it is not up to Cussler's usual standard.
The story seems quite fragmented and incoherent. The typically fanciful and enthralling storyline is missing, replaced with a poorly explained scientific surveillance tool that seems too far fetched to invest in.
It's the first time with a Cussler tale that I kept checking the countdown timer as if to speed to the end.
On the bright side there is no cringeworty cameo appearance.

Great narration by Scott Brick. Clive Cussler did it again. I really enjoy his books because of the excitement from beginning to end. He is definitely my favorite author. I can hardly wait til next book comes out. I love when Juan Cabrillo turned the tide and the antagonist received his just reward. While reading or listening to Clive Cussler's books you are sure to expect clean decent stories that are not padded with sexual content or cussing or obscene language. Thanks Mr. Cussler.

Action packed adventure
This is book ten in the Oregon series. I saw an ad for book eleven in the series and discovered I had missed reading book ten. It has been awhile since I read a Cussler book.
This book follows the Cussler tradition of non-stop action. The characters no sooner get out of one predicament than they plunge into another. In this story the book opens in 1902 with the eruption of Mt. Pelé on Martinique then switches to modern times. Lawrence Kensit is attempting to take over the world. Admiral Dayana Ruiz of the Venezuelan Navy is helping him and of course the crew of the Oregon is out to stop both of them.
The book is well written and has all the high tech wizardry that I like about the series. I did notice the style of writing was different and saw there was a change in co-authors from Jack DuBral to Boyd Morrison. Scott Brick preformed his usual excellent job narrating the story. Brick is known as one of the golden voices of audiobook narration. He has won over 50 Earphone Awards and two Audie Awards. Some of his recent awards are the 2016 Best Voice in Science Fiction, 2011 Best Voice in Mystery and Suspense, 2010 Best Voice in Biography and the 2008 Best Voice in Science Fiction. He has also won awards for acting.
