Publisher's Summary

The extraordinary new audiobook in the #1 New York Times - best-selling series from the grand master of adventure.

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.

    Story
    "Cussler is the King of Historical Fiction"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is absolutely a book to pass on to friends, if for no other reason than to have someone to talk to about it. It is the type book that seems worthy of discussion and inspection. I actually asked a friend who retired from the Navy if some aspects were "nautically correct": They were.


    Any additional comments?

    Full disclosure I love mysteries, histories, any writer that can weave the two into one story. So please understand I am a Clive Cussler devotee and think everything he writes is good. This however, surpasses that. As you read/listen to this story unfold, you see it playing out in your mind. Imagine the story that has as an outline: The Philadelphia Experiment, Russian Mob, Russian Navy, Ultra-Rich spy hero with his own spy-ship and gadgets, disappearing ships, super yachts, and a bit of death and destruction. How can that recipe NOT turn out good?
    In reality, it does. It has a way of sucking you in until you are immersed in the naval history which may or may not be completely true. Real or not, it is captivating how Cussler manages to weave a story most people know something about (The Philadelphia Experiment) with modern events to tell a completely new story that seems to acknowledge the old story was legend and the new story is reality.
    Excellent and thought provoking, but caution: Do Not Drive a Vehicle while listening! You will be so enraptured with the story that you will visualize the books action instead of the road.

    Story
    "The Genius of Tesla and Cussler"

    I enjoyed the book but the parts concerning Tesla ' s weaponized experiments seemed a little bit over the top, but entertaining nonetheless. I always enjoy Cussler in all forms of his heroes.

    "Twists and Turns Galore!"

    This will be one of my favorites in the Oregon Files. I almost wish Juan hadn't ... well I don't want to give the end away.

    Story
    "Cussler and Tesla a magnetically charged book "

    As imaginative as Tesla was with his engineering, Cussler is with his story telling. The Mirage has you believing that The Oregon and Tesla's ship are as real as the USS Stinson.

    As usual Scott Brick turns in a great performance for a Clive Cussler novel full of suspense, action, and mystery around every corner.

    "Mirage Review"

    It wasn't that good; disjointed plot; did not "flow" smoothly. Overall, I was disappointed!
