When a high-profile Russian prisoner warns of a deadly weapon designed by one of America's greatest inventors, Juan Cabrillo and the Oregon crew must race to uncover the truth in this adventure in the #1 New York Times–bestselling series.

In October 1943, a U.S. destroyer sailed out of Philadelphia and supposedly vanished, the result of a Navy experiment with electromagnetic radiation. The story was considered a hoax—but now Juan Cabrillo and his Oregon colleagues aren’t so sure.

There is talk of a new weapon soon to be auctioned, something very dangerous to America’s interests, and the rumors link it to the great inventor Nikola Tesla, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the experiment? Are his notes in the hands of enemies? As Cabrillo races to find the truth, he discovers there is even more at stake than he could have imagined—but by the time he realizes it, he may already be too late.

I awaited the release of this new novel patiently, and it was worth the wait. However, as much as I tried to savor the adventure by reading it at an easy going pace, it was such fast reading that I finished it much too soon. As always the adventure of the crew and ship are as expected, it was a joy to read. Highly recommend it to any Oregon fans, Cabrillo is as expected, no disappointment. Read it, just be warned it is fast reading.

Another exciting and hard to put down book about the crew of the Oregon. Close calls for the Chairman himself, and some of his crew. The ship itsself almost lost. A real page turner except for one chapter where the author pulled somewhat of a diversion and lost some of the momentum, but recovered a chapter later. Very well done, once again.

This is a piece of writing that sets the pace of story telling that not many books have achieved. Ir set my pulse racing as I anticipated what the next line, paragraph or chapters would reveal.Why a cool ride,coming with a marvelous plot, rich characters and a brilliant setting.It is tightly written, a style that brings to mind another the story of Gavin in Triple Agent Double Cross. I think this is a well researched novel.

I was very excited to read this 9th installment of the Oregon series. While not disappointed it is not the best of the series. I was expecting the same highly planned military type operations and they were just not there. Happy I read it and am still a fan

I have been a fan of Clive Cussler since the 1970s and I generally enjoy the books he writes or collaborates on. Mirage is the latest story involving the Oregon and its Captain Juan Cabrillo. The plot revolves around a rogue Russian Admiral who gets his hands on cloaking technology somehow related to Tesla and the Oregon's attempts to stop him and prevent a war between China and Japan. The story was relatively decent, but was not as good as some of the past books of this particular series. The story seemed to lurch around at times and included a subplot which had no relation to the main plot. The story seemed to race to a somewhat anti-climatic end which was not very satisfying. Overall I would give it a C+.

Mirage is your typical Cussler mystery. In typical fashion it blends historical events with the modern world. It's easy to read and keeps you interested. My problem - I find it hard to put down. I hated to see it end. Enjoy
