Publisher's Summary

The author of the bestselling NUMA and Dirk Pitt series returns with a novel of adventure and intrigue featuring his unbeatable hero of the high seas: Juan Cabrillo.

Cabrillo and his motley crew aboard the clandestine spy ship Oregon have made a very comfortable and very dangerous living working for high-powered Western interests. But their newest clients have come from the Far East to ask for Cabrillo's special brand of assistance. They're a consortium of Japanese shipping magnates whose fortunes are being threatened by brutal pirates trolling the waters of Southeast Asia.Normally, such attacks on the high seas are limited to smaller ships and foreign-owned yachts-easy targets on the open ocean. Now, however, giant commercial freighters are disappearing. But when Cabrillo confronts the enemy, he learns that the pirates' predations hide a deadly international conspiracy-a scheme of death and slavery that Juan Cabrillo is going to blow out of the water.

    "Dark Watch"

    This is another story about the ship Oregon and crew. Covers pirates to human trafficking to banking. Fast pace and lots of action. Tom Wopat did a good job reading the story. The only downside to the book was that is was abridged. They did a good job with the abridgment as I could keep track from one action and problem to the next. Book was not long enough but good for a short book between longer or more complicated books. Worth the read.

    Story
    "Just for Fun"
    Would you try another book from Clive Cussler and/or Tom Wopat?

    Cussler has a way of keeping you on your toes. There is just the right amount of detail spread through out the story and yet, not too much to bore you. I enjoy listening to these stories just for the fun of it. For a time, it just takes me away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Great distractions from the stress of being stuck in traffic at rush hour. One cannot listen to self-help audio all the time. Got to lighten things up and enjoy a good thriller now and then.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Already listening to one - "Poseidon"


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Wopat’s performances?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from Dark Watch?

    None

    Story
    "The developing saga......."
    If you could sum up Dark Watch in three words, what would they be?

    Being a huge Cussler fan, I was expecting the multi parallel plots, with the crew of the Oregon all finding their intricate way to the common climax, but sadly, only Eddie Singh left the pack in this adventure. If I had of read this story before The Jungle, Corsair, and Silent Sea. I wouldn't have been waiting for the twists.
    Having said that, this book is a really enjoyable book, with the bad guys getting there just deserts. Except, what about the 10 top banking officials and their greed? What became of them?
    I recommend that readers start at the beginning and read the Oregon Files in order. That way you can watch the characters and corporation develop. Otherwise the first books will not have the depth expected from later books

    "Great mix of current event and thriller"

    As always the Oregon adventures have a root of the past, slide into the present then pull all of them together in a thrilling adventure.
