Overview

The extraordinary new adventure from the #1 New York Times- bestselling author.

Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

A devastating new weapon unleashed in thirteenth-century China...a daring rescue in the snowbound mountains along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border...a woman gone missing in the jungles of northern Thailand and Myanmar...for Cabrillo and his crew, all of these events will come together-leading to the greatest threat against U.S. security that the world has ever known.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Terrifying danger lies in the lush overgrowths of history. For Juan Cabrillo and his multi-talented Oregon crew, the latest threat arrives in an ancient package: a 13th century Chinese weapon that provokes fears of terrorist blackmail and globaldevastation. Into this potent mix, Clive Cussler and co-author Jack DuBrul drop generous blend of rescues, danger, and suspense. A rippling addition to the resilient Oregon Files series.

Publishers Weekly
Juan Cabrillo and his crew of mercenaries engage in one daring rescue operation after another with progressively higher stakes in Cussler's high-octane eighth Oregon Files novel (after The Silent Sea), his sixth collaboration with Du Brul. The rescue of a kidnap victim, an Indonesian teenage boy, from an Afghan village, yields a bonus in the form of MacD Lawless, a former U.S. Army Ranger, who proves of immediate value. Betrayals, more rescues, and escapes follow as one mysterious man seeks world domination using a discovery linked to 13th-century China. Cabrillo's handpicked team members, who operate from their state-of-the-art ship, the Oregon, are the only chance to stop a plot that threatens to bring the U.S. government to its knees. The frenetic action moves from Afghanistan to Singapore and the Burmese jungle with lots of derring-do at sea before climaxing in a surprising locale in a fashion sure to delight series fans. (Mar.)

Meet the Author

Clive  Cussler
Clive Cussler is the author of many New York Times bestsellers, most recently The Spy and Lost Empire.
Jack Du Brul is the author of the Philip Mercer series, and the coauthor with Cussler of five Oregon Files novels.

Biography

Cussler began writing novels in 1965 and published his first work featuring his continuous series hero, Dirk Pitt, in 1973. His first non-fiction, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. The Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York, considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in May, 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.

Cussler is an internationally recognized authority on shipwrecks and the founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency, (NUMA) a 501C3 non-profit organization (named after the fictional Federal agency in his novels) that dedicates itself to preserving American maritime and naval history. He and his crew of marine experts and NUMA volunteers have discovered more than 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites including the first submarine to sink a ship in battle, the Confederacy's Hunley, and its victim, the Union's Housatonic; the U-20, the U-boat that sank the Lusitania; the Cumberland, which was sunk by the famous ironclad, Merrimack; the renowned Confederate raider Florida; the Navy airship, Akron, the Republic of Texas Navy warship, Zavala, found under a parking lot in Galveston, and the Carpathia, which sank almost six years to-the-day after plucking Titanic's survivors from the sea.

In September, 1998, NUMA - which turns over all artifacts to state and Federal authorities, or donates them to museums and universities - launched its own web site for those wishing more information about maritime history or wishing to make donations to the organization. (www.numa.net).

In addition to being the Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is also a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London. He has been honored with the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration.

Cussler's books have been published in more than 40 languages in more than 100 countries. The author lives in Arizona.

Good To Know

Cussler worked for many years in advertising and was responsible for coming up with Ajax's "White Knight" commercial catchphrase, "It's stronger than dirt."

The Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York, considered Cussler's 1996 nonfiction book, The Sea Hunters, equivalent to a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in 1997.

Cussler is a fellow in the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London, and has been granted the Lowell Thomas Award for outstanding underwater exploration.

    This is truly an awesome book

    I bought this book because I wasn't going to be doing anything over spring break. It is one of the best books in the Oregon Files series and, for good reason, my favorite. It isn't as action packed as some of the others, but it still has the same signature suspense that Cussler flaulessy infiltrates into his stories.

    Wow, what a ride!

    I have read all of Clive's books, most several times. THis is the greatest since "Vahalla". The story had many twists & turns & I plan to listen to audiobook when I have time. Highly recommended & my only complaint is the epilog was rather wimpy compared to the rest of the book. THis story will require the reader not to put it down until the wild ride ends.

    Highly recommened!

    This book is good. I might have enjoyed it more but I just recently changed from paper to E-Books. You say whats that got to do with anything. Think about it You have read paper and held it all your life(55years) and suddenly your holding a piece of plastic that is less than a 1/2 inch wide and beleive it or not it takes some getting used to. But I look forward to reading this book again on my E-Reader in the future.It is a good book and once I got used to my Reader I do Love it and Clive Cussler./ Signed 17 year fan!!

    Suspenseful, Intrigue, Intelligent and Action Packed

    I look forward to reading Clive Cussler novels and look for his new releases with anticipation. This book with Jack Du Brul is great. I have followed Juan Cabillos exploits on many missions and always wonder how they can get any better. The Jungle was terrific and kept me guessing. I looked forward to opening up my electronic reader and diving back into the story, just to see where I could go next with Juan and his crew . OUTSTANDING READ . THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS THEY ARE REALLY APPRECIATED ! Hal McKoon

    Highly recommended - A must read!

    This one has it all. From the Pacific Northwest, to the Mississippi River, to steaming South America, to the harsh Antarctic to urban warfare book takes to every possible environment in the western hemisphere. 'The Jungle' has high adventure and gun battles at every turn.

    Mostly highly recommended

    The Oregon Files are an inteesting series but not quite as good as the original Dirk Pitt series. However, quick reading, keeps you interested and wanting more. It is again another "keeper" from Clive Cussler and his groups of authors.

    Not a disapointment

    A lot of action and like all Clive's books, makes you think; wow this could really happen. The only reason i didn't give "The Jungle" 5 stars was do to the ending. Without giving anything about the book away, the last 3 sentences kind of ruins it for me.
    There is a bonus in this book. Clive introduces a new member to the series.

    Wow! Wow!

    The best Oregon Files yet. I read it in one sitting. I have read anything that Cussler has put out but The Oregon Files are my favorite. Thank you.Clive, for writing excellent, action filled adventure stories with no foul language. I wish more authors would realize that it is possible to put out this caliber of work without the language. Some women authors seem to feel foul language makes a better book. Not! It just appears that you don't have enough to say so you have to use language as filler. Lee Childs and Jack Du Brul also put out language free action packed adventures. Kudos Clive you did an excellent job once again.
