Hired to search for a collection of paintings worth half a billion dollars, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon soon find themselves in much deeper waters. The vicious leader of a Filipino insurgency is not only using them to finance his attacks, he has stumbled upon one of the most lethal secrets of World War II: a Japanese-developed drug, designed, but never used, to turn soldiers into super-warriors. To stop him, the Oregon must not only take on the rebel commander, but a South African mercenary intent on getting his own hands on the drug, a massive swarm of torpedo drones targeting the U.S. Navy, an approaching megastorm--and, just possibly, a war that could envelop the entire Asian continent.

Other Items In This Series

Benchley, Peter — Both Peter Benchley and Clive Cussler are able to show their extensive knowledge of underwater adventures, exploits and inhabitants in their fast paced and suspenseful novels which delight readers with their escapism. -- Tara Bannon Williamson
Fleming, Ian, 1908-1964 — Ian Fleming's James Bond is probably the closest match to Cussler's Dirk Pitt when it comes to resourcefulness and independence. Exotic locales, technical details (often of unusual weaponry), and fast pacing characterize both series. But beware: although the character has been taken up by newer authors, it's still Fleming who writes the quintessential Bond. -- Shauna Griffin
Adams, Will, 1963- — If you like Clive Cussler's novels for exotic locales, historical mysteries, and action-packed adventures, try Will Adams. -- Katherine Johnson
Brokaw, Charles — Clive Cussler and Charles Brokaw write fascinating suspense stories featuring series characters, exotic locales, men on missions, and artifacts. -- Rebecca Sigmon
Du Brul, Jack B. — Both Jack Du Brul and Clive Cussler write fast-paced, over-the-top Adventures. The heroes in both series face overwhelming odds and terrible villains on their way to saving the day. Du Brul, however, features more sex and violence than does Cussler. -- Shauna Griffin
Preston, Douglas J. — Whether they're writing together or separately, Douglas J. Preston and Lincoln Child also create stories that contain many of the elements Clive Cussler's fans prize-exotic settings, treasure or secrets or other intriguing backgrounds, high-tech toys.

Bell, Ted — Like Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt, Ted Bell's Alexander Hawke is a modern-day swashbuckler who always has the skills he needs to handle a crisis. Toss in exotic locales, off-the cuff humor, plenty of colorful details, and sinister villains, and you have an excellent option for Cussler fans. -- Shauna Griffin
Reilly, Matthew — Like Clive Cussler, Matthew Reilly places his heroes in dangerous situations in exotic locales. Although more violent than Cussler's, these over-the-top Adventure stories also feature dangerous chases, treasure, and deadly enemies, as well as fascinating background details involving historical and contemporary perspectives. -- Shauna Griffin
Rollins, James, 1961- — The non-stop action and danger found in James Rollins' thrillers are sure to appeal to Clive Cussler's fans, as will the problem-solving, independent nature of his heroes, their exotic surroundings, and the combination of historical and contemporary timelines. -- Shauna Griffin
Child, Lincoln — Whether they're writing together or separately, Lincoln Child and Douglas J. Preston also create stories that contain many of the elements Clive Cussler's fans prize-exotic settings, treasure or secrets or other intriguing backgrounds, high-tech toys. Some of their novels even have marine settings. -- Shauna Griffin
Greanias, Thomas; Benson, Raymond, 1955- — These authors' works are Suspenseful, Plot-driven, and Fast-paced, and they share: the genres 'Thrillers and suspense' and 'Adventure stories' and the subject 'International intrigue'.
