The thrilling new adventure from the #1 New York Times- bestselling author.
Clive Cussler's tales of the Oregon and its crew-"the clever, indefatigable Juan Cabrillo and his merry band of tough, tech-savvy fighting men and women" (Publishers Weekly)-have made fans of hundreds of thousands of readers. But the Oregon's sixth adventure is its most remarkable one yet.
On December 7, 1941, five brothers exploring a shaft on a small island off the coast of Washington State make an extraordinary discovery, only to be interrupted by news of Pearl Harbor. In the present, Cabrillo, chasing the remnants of a crashed satellite in the Argentine jungle, stumbles upon a shocking revelation of his own. His search to untangle the mystery leads him, first, to that small island and its secret, and then much farther back, to an ancient Chinese expedition-and a curse that seems to have survived for more than five hundred years. If Cabrillo's team is successful in its quest, the reward could be incalculable. If not . . . the only reward is death.

Clive Cussler is the author of many New York Times bestsellers, most recently The Spy and Lost Empire. He lives in Arizona.
Jack Du Brul is a graduate of the Westminster School and George Washington University. Trying to add as much adventure to his life as he does to his novels, Du Brul has climbed Masada at noon, swam in the Arctic Ocean off Point Barrow, explored war-torn Eritrea, camped in Greenland, and was gnawed on by piranhas in the Amazon River. He collects zeppelin memorabilia and when not writing or traveling (25 countries and counting), he can be found in a favorite chair with a book and a brandy. Jack Du Brul lives in Burlington, Vermont.
Another ancient mystery is uncovered that could gravely affect the modern world: A voyage undertaken by imperial China might be used to support an Argentinean claim to a gigantic Antarctic oil field--regardless of the terms of the international Antarctic Treaty. From there, the story leaps from one cliffhanger to another. Scott Brick is a master of accents and pacing. Unassisted by music and sound effects, he brings listeners straight into the core of the story--we even feel sorry for the villains. Brick has a subtle way of jacking up the tension with the smallest changes in intonation, and boy, does he use that talent here! D.R.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
