Absolutely up to Cussler's standards. His attention to detail is second to none.
One cannot help but wonder how much of the technology that he describes already exists and is not revealed to the general public.
Cussler, Cornwell and Clancy stand above the masses.
Juan Cabrillo and his crew aboard the spy ship Oregon have made a very comfortable and dangerous living from working for high-powered Western interests. But their newest clients are a consortium of Japanese shipping magnates, whose fortunes are being threatened by brutal pirates trolling the waters of Southeast Asia. When the Oregon confronts the enemy, Cabrillo learns that the pirates' predations hide a deadly international conspiracy.
This was the 3rd book in The Oregon Chronicles. I liked the writing of both Clive Cussler and Jack DuBrul which provided for an action-packed read. The character development and all the different plots added much to the reading of the book. I look forward to reading the 4th book of the series and highly recommend this book to those whose love action-packed adventure books.
