Publisher's Summary

Juan 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: 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.

    "Good Book, but 2005 CD's"

    As usual a top flight job the team of Cussler, Du Brul and Brick! Problem is that it's the 2005 CD's put together for audible; they didn't even edit out the CD headers! I mean it's all brain candy, but I have the CD's somewhere. Still an enjoyable escape!

    Story
    "Good Fun. Might be the Best."

    If your are a Cussler fan you already know how good his work is. This is a classic Oregon story with a current day theme. Cabrillo and his motley crew are at their best. If you've never read one of the Oregon series books, they are a little bit James Bond, a little bit Mission Impossible, a little bit Indiana Jones. This book stands on it's own. I think after having read them all that this one might be the best. I'm not sure why it was re-released but its very relevant. One problem I noticed this was from the CD Version and they didn't edit out the "end of disc" dubs.

    "Love Cussler but....."

    Hate the sex scenes. To me it muddies up the story and distracts for the good things the crew of the Oregon do.

    Story
    "Consistent with the rest of the books"

    Some books work really well when read by Scott Brick and he does a great job on this Cussler co-write. Causer's style is not ponderous, nor sparse like the well missed Parker, but the pace is well handled by Mr. Brick's style of reading. It's a good story and we learn more about some of our now favourite characters. Like the very early Dirk Pitt novels, I get a bit concerned when the Chairman starts to seem like he's from Krypton not Earth, but it's a good story despite the BIG STRETCH with the leg and the ship saw.

    "Tired of authors who just copy an old story"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love this series about Juan Cabrillo and the exploits of his merry group of people but I am tired of having a older storie written just to sell a book. When a new story about this boat and its owners comes along I am quick to give it a listen. Problem is that there appears to the same sory wit minor twists just to sell a book.


    What could Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    How about writing a good original story rather than just trying to write a story to get a paycheck. Some original thoughts would be nice.


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

    Great job


    What character would you cut from Dark Watch?

    You don't have to cut out a person just need to use original material.


    Any additional comments?

    Try some originality I love the series but maybe

    "Fun and exciting"

    The Oregon Files are a great display of team unity while facing unbelievable odds and still having a happy ending. I thoroughly enjoy the skills of the team and more so the abilities of the ship.
    What I enjoyed about Dark Watch is the teams willingness to go above and beyond what was originally asked of them, because it was the right thing to do.
    I also enjoyed the addition of a love interest, which doesn't steal the focus of the book, but adds to the story and happy ending. I'm a sucker for happy endings.

    Story
    "One of my Favorites"

    The first two Oregon Files are sort of...well...fluff. This one gives more depth to the characters. It isn't gritty, but Juan has real human emotions rather than always being "Superman." Eddie, too, feels fear and a desire for payback. I have listened to this one three times now and still enjoy it.

    "Complex storyline, be prepared to listen"

    Good book. Helps if you're able to thoroughly listen to the book as I found myself having to rewind when I got interrupted. I want to know how much of the story and ideas therein are true or really possible.

    "It Could Have Been Good"

    Every element, every character, every device wasted a good yarn. In my Thesaurus the number is 883 (dullness). Pick the adjective - banal, hackneyed, or formulaic. No subtlety, no humor, predictable back stories.
    Made less interesting by the inflections of the Narrator.
    I listened to it all hoping it would get better, but the author(s) mercifully tied most of the loose ends in minutes.
