Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the winning seventh entry in the Oregon Files nautical adventure series from bestseller Cussler and Du Brul (after Corsair), Juan Cabrillo, the heroic skipper of the Oregon, a state-of-the-art warship disguised as a tramp steamer, faces a multitude of difficulties and challenges. A fabulous pirate treasure may lie at the bottom of a deep well on Pine Island in Washington State. In Argentina, a junta of generals has seized power and turned the country into a police state with designs on the rest of South America. The discovery of the remains of a WWII-era blimp in the Argentine jungle ups the ante. At the bottom of the sea off Antarctica, where the Argentines have opened a secret oil field, lies a huge, ancient Chinese vessel, which could help the Chinese, who are in league with the Argentines, in any legal claim to Antarctic territory. The action seesaws from subtropical jungles to the bitter cold of the Antarctic as Juan leads his band of intrepid scientist warriors into battle against a host of nefarious enemies. A cliffhanger ending will leave fans panting for more. (Mar.)

Meet the Author

Clive  Cussler

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.

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.

    Another great "Oregon Files" story

    Our hero Juan Cabrillo comes through again. An interesting and exciting story from the Oregon Files. Going from South America to the Pacific Northwest to Antartica, globe hopping all over. Great story line. Have always loved the way Cussler mixes in actual historical events and builds a great story around them.
    Cabrillo is the Errol Flynn swash-buckling hero of our times. Love the whole premise of the Corporation and the Orgegon and it's crew. A dedicated bunch. Hopefully there will be many more stories to come in this series.

    Book Ruined my day

    Major problem with this book is it prevents me from living life. Like all of Cussler's adventures, it removes the reader from the real world. So, I almost missed a flight. I was the last one off the plane, and I preferred sittng and reading in the hotel room rather than attend the meetings I paid good money to attend. So, the bottom line is, don't buy this book unless you are willing to set aside time to leave your real world and have a great page turning read in Cussler's world.

    Adventure on the High Seas

    I confess, I'm a huge Clive Cussler fan and have been for decades so whenever he releases a new novel I'm up for the adventure. The Silent Sea does not disappoint. It's practically non-stop excitement and it had me guessing until literally the very last paragraph. As usual, Cussler and DuBrul weave a great tale of adventure. Highly recommended! I also recommend DuBrul's Philip Mercer series.

    Clive Cussler ranks with other great mystery writers of the world

    I read every book by Clive Cussler.
    Clive Cussler is an archaeologist, historian, geologist, mathematician, scientist, and above all, one fine writer. He is also a patriot and a protector of our Democracy in the United States, as well as around the world. He is also a philosopher, who anticipates the future, and gives warning to the democratic nations against terrorists of illiterate nations.

    I keep his books on my NOOK Reader, when I travel, or when I am at home.

    As soon as a new mystery is available, I purchase it on my NOOK Reader.

    I have read and re-read his books, over the years.
    I give Clive Cussler's books, as gifts to my friends and family.

    Clive Cussler's books should be on the best reading lists, for High School and University Government Students, as well as our elected and appointed figures of the U.S. Government, including our Congressional Leaders

    Cussler Rocks ! ! !

    I have yet to read a Cussler book that has not turned into a page turner. The start takes some patience, but once the real story line gets started, it is non-stop action to the end.
    In this book, the story centers around the characters from his Oregon Files series. There is a time when it was hard to see how the different stories being told inter-related but then all of a sudden it hits you and it is at that point you want to keep reading to see what happens next.
    Any fan of Clive Cussler's is going to enjoy this book, I know I did.

    Brick reads Cussler BEST!

    We listened to this on a long trip from New Jersey to Virginia, up and back. It is entertaining, connected to previous reads, and different enough to hold your interest in Washington traffic! As always Cussler starts with threads and weaves them together. The chase is thrilling and the characters are in their element. Brick reads the script well and his voice has the right tembor to keep you asking for more. A great fun read!

    Classic Cussler

    Juan, Max, Julia and all the boys in yet another great swashbuckling adventure out to save the world from another global threat. I never want it to end and all too frequently, the end of the book comes far too quickly. All of Mr. Cussler's hero's keep the male readers wanting to be that hero and all us female readers wanting to marry them - all of them. Wonderful characters that you just love to love and non-stop action that you just hate to set the book down to do anything else. The frigid Antarctic setting is no exception in this chapter of Juan's life. Bravo, Bravo! once again - you never leave me disappointed.

    Great story! Mystery and excitement all the way through!

    I enjoyed this story very much. I was not sure what it was about, but I will be looking for more of Clive Cussler's work. I think it would be a good read for anyone age 13 and up, and if a younger person was a good reader, they would enjoy it also.
