Plague Ship: A Novel of the Oregon Files #5

by Clive Cussler Jack Dubrul

An exhilarating new adventure in the New York Times-bestselling Oregon Files series. "Readers will burn up the pages following the blazing action and daring exploits of these men and women and their amazing machines" (Publishers Weekly). For four novels, Clive Cussler has charted the exploits of the Oregon, a covert ship completely dilapidated on the outside but on the inside packed with sophisticated weaponry and intelligence-gathering equipment. Captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo and manned by a crew of former military and spy personnel, it is a private enterprise, available for any government agency that can afford it-and now Cussler sends the Oregon on its most extraordinary mission yet. The crew has just completed a top secret mission against Iran in the Persian Gulf when they come across a cruise ship adrift at sea. Hundreds of bodies litter its deck, and, as Cabrillo tries to determine what happened, explosions rack the length of the ship. Barely able to escape with his own life and that of the liner's sole survivor, Cabrillo finds himself plunged into a mystery as intricate-and as perilous-as any he has ever known and pitted against a cult with monstrously lethal plans for the human race... plans he may already be too late to stop. Plague Ship is a high-stakes, high-seas journey that proves once again that Cussler is "just about the best storyteller in the business" (New York Post).

Polar Shift (NUMA files #6)

by Clive Cussler Paul Kemprecos

Polar shift: It is the name for a phenomenon that may have occurred many times in the past. At the very least, it disorients birds and animals and damages electrical equipment. At its worst, it causes massive eruptions, earthquakes, and climatic changes. At its very worst, it would mean the obliteration of all living matter, and if that happens-exit Earth. <P> Sixty years ago, an eccentric Hungarian genius discovered how to artificially trigger such a shift, but then his work was lost, or so it was thought. Now, the charismatic leader of an anti-globalization group plans to use the work to give the world's industrialized nations a small jolt, then reverse the shift back again. The only problem is, it cannot be reversed. Once the shift starts, there is nothing anyone can do about it. <P> Austin, Zavala, and the rest of the NUMA Special Assignments Team certainly have faced dire situations before, but never have they encountered anything like this. This time... even they may be too late.

Poseidon's Arrow (Dirk Pitt #22)

"Exotic locations, ruthless villains and many narrow escapes--Cussler's fans come for swashbuckling [and] he delivers. " And now the Cusslers bring us Pitt's most dangerous adventure of all. It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades--an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. Nothing else in any other nation's naval arsenal even comes close. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing--and the man who developed it is dead. At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again, but when they are, sometimes bodies are found aboard... burned to a crisp. What is going on? And what does it have to do with an Italian submarine that itself disappeared in 1943, lost at sea? Or was she? It is up to NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his team, aided by a beautiful NCIS agent and by Pitt's children, marine engineer Dirk and oceanographer Summer, to go on a desperate international chase to find the truth, from Washington to Mexico, Idaho to Panama. What they discover at the end of it is a much, much greater threat than even they imagined. If they don't succeed in their mission, the world as they know it might end up a very different place--and not a pleasant one. Filled with breathtaking suspense and extraordinary imagination,Poseidon's Arrow is further proof that when it comes to adventure writing, nobody beats Clive Cussler.
