Juan Cabrillo's first adventure with the Oregon - a state-of-the-art spy ship disguised as a nondescript lumber hauler - takes him and his crew into dangerous waters as they try to put Tibet back in the hands of the Dalai Lama by striking a deal with the Russians and the Chinese.
Cabrillo's gambling chip is a golden Buddha containing records of vast oil reserves in the disputed land. But first he'll have to locate - and steal - the all-important artifact. And there are certain people who would do anything in their power to see him fail....

I and used to good stories from Mr Cussler. The poor read and distracting production diminished the book to the point that I had to pause and take a break from the whole thing. What a way to wreck a decent book.
It was painful to listen too and I really missed Scott Brick. Books 3 and onward are 5 stars, but this one seemed to be written from a different hand.
I have listened to all of the Oregon series. Loved them all. I enjoy Scott Brick
but J Charles just can't do accents.Sorry I wasted a credit on it. I would not recommend it to anyone
The story was ok but J Charle's was terrible
Was looking forward to getting book 2 but not now
J. Charles is a horrible reader. I will never buy another book that he reads. The accents are bad and in some cases non existent . His Texas accent is over-the-top comical. He is nowhere near in class to Scott Brick who reads the later books in the series.
His reading is a disgrace. So bad that I cannot stand to finish the book. He also pronounced buoy's as boys.
The accent for Juan was so bad he went from the cool captain to the uninspired sailor. The crew's voices a major let down. Scott Brick as reader it would be a different review!!!
Did CC die? What the heck was that mess? Scott Bric you were missed. Ugh.
Worst audio book narration I've ever heard. Characters sounded like comedic stereotype versions of what they should. One actually sounded like the Judge from Caddy Shack.
Ruined a decent story.
