Coast a previous one that Cussler also wrote with his friend Du Brul , and this new iteration looked promising enough But the dialogue in Corsair is very poor and the action scenes Cussler s trademark are too far and few between Whereas Skeleton Coast held the promise of some kind of hookup between Cabrillo, the hero, and Sloane Macintyre a heroin in her own right Corsair feels a bit empty If you

James Bond Indiana Jones type of plot line archeological mystery, world or regional crisis, figuring it out, someone saves the day, etc Except in these Oregon Files novels instead of just one guy figuring things out and saving the day it is a group of mercenaries who have formed a for profit corporation and take on jobs that governments can t openly do They do it for profit they all have multi million dollar pensions from their work so far , but they only take on worthy and upstanding causes They go around the world in this major high tech ship that s disguised as a run down cargo ship flying the Iranian flag and have all sorts of high tech toys weapons equipment The crew corporation is composed of all types of characters including the studly tough types, nerdy info geeks, and tough women The variety of characters makes for ainteresting read than just one tough,cool guy It also allows for the authors to split up the characters to different places and the action story line is spread out one of those types of books where you are really getting into one minor plot line then the next chapter switches to another group and you give an internal scream, read on and stay up too late I ve read all four of the Oregon Files novels and this one is definitely one of the better ones they don t have to be read in sequence they stand on their own It keeps the action going from start to finish There are a few fight battle scenes that are too drawn out and one or two over the top unrealistic fight survivals by the captain of the Oregon But that kind of goes with the territory genre Overall this was a fun read I enjoyed it and looked forward to picking it up at the end of the day to see what would happen next I would recommend it if you want a fun action book Books which Clive Cussler write are for me those comfort books I know everything will end well and I know that I will enjoy them.A extra in his books which I always enjoy is the different periods in the story.Pirates,

Linda Ross had in fighting Assad s men The action and adventure scenes were very entertaining but the technical information was a bit much for me I wish there weredialogue between the characters during the adventure scenes as I believe that would make it muchenjoyable I found the plot a little weaker from the past books but I still found the book a fascinating read I would highly recommend Clive Cussler s book to those who like adventure reads Actually one of the better Cussler books Less misogyny andplausible storyline The man writes exciting books. Absolutely excellent great adventure, plausible, wonderful characters, bit of history thrown in and unputdownable Another great read in the Cabrillo series. Another action packed adventure read This one really utilizes all the characters Great ending
