The second of the Oregon Files series. The book has a slow start and a style that makes it feel as though the action takes place over a longer period of time than it actually does.
Cussler and Dirgo create characters that you can enjoy and respect over the series of books as well as situations you wish that someone in the world would handle in such creatively compassionate ways (not to say the bad guys don't get what's coming to them).
As usual, Clive Cussler delivers another exciting adventure that's so fun to read. I admit that towards the end, when many different components were in play and there were short jumps from one to the next, I got a little confused. But I still very much enjoyed the book and couldn't wait to pick it up each time to read more!
