Overview

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the covert combat ship Oregon have barely escaped a mission on the Congo River when they intercept a mayday from a defenseless boat under fire off the African coast. Cabrillo takes action, saving the beautiful Sloane Macintyre-who's looking for a long-submerged ship that may hold a fortune in diamonds. But what surprises Cabrillo is her story about a crazy fisherman who claims to have been attacked on the open sea by giant metal snakes in the same area.

What begins as a snake hunt leads Cabrillo onto the trail of a far more lethal quarry-a deranged militant and his followers who plan to unleash the devastating power of nature itself against all who oppose them.

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.

Ok, so maybe not steroids, but Jack DuBrul's writing might be the closest thing to it in a literay sense. I'm a long time fan of Cussler, but I've got no qualms admitting that DuBrul is more...intense writer of the two. And it really shows in Skeleton Coast! I couldn't put it down! This is another of the Oregon Files titles, but it's by far the best. This one grabs you from the first sentence and doesn't let go. It's a breath of fresh air for Cussler fans and while I look forward to future Cussler/DuBrul team-ups, I'm just as happy to see DuBrul stick with his Phillip Mercer books. Whether you're a fan of Cussler or Dubrul, Skeleton Coast, will float your boat.... Get it? Cussler...boat? Yeah, that's lame...but the book isn't!

A a career Salior it's hard for me to amagine a ship so far under the sandy desert, Clive has prepared a wonderful setting for the Oregon Files. He was able to place me on the ship during the storm and kept me on the edge throughout the book.

This book grabs you in the first 20 pages. I always enjoy The Oregon Files but this one is especially intense. Dont get this one for light reading because the action never lets up and the plot never lets go. I wouldnt say its the best of the series but its certainly one of the most action-packed. With that said i have to agree with another review. This book has been his most politically laced and for me that was not enjoyable. There was judgement through out. At one point a character states "i hate Afriva" like its one giant country and one experience. To me the worst offense was that no one pointed out the error in the statement. Its not just that i disagree. Its that he has written his characters to not accept those kind of statements. So i felt like he let wrote some things to be said that didnt fit the characters and didnt care. I let it go and greatly enjoyed the book but its there and its jarring.

Since I read my first Cussler book I can't get enough of his stories. I have read at least one of every one of his series and have loved every one of them.

Typical Custer putting the ancient history at the beginning providing the basis for the later events. It is a book that you can't put down.
