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.

If you're someone who enjoys the Cussler-brand formula, you'll love this book. The protagonists suffer an endless series of attacks throughout the entire book, escaping death only within the last few seconds each time. Zillions of people die. Much crashing, exploding, and especially shooting. I bought the book because I'm interested in some of the technology mentioned in the blurb, but very little was put forth, and all of that was improbable. The situations that could have/should have been fascinating, were overshadowed by the bangbang-shootemup.
The narrator was a good fit for the formula.
I'm giving this a 3 instead of a 1 or 2, even though I didn't much like it, because I think it does a good job of delivering what's expected from this type of 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.
The story is a little bit predictable but as always Brick is awesome and nails the performance.
I am a retired psychologist with lots of time on my hands, thus I listen to a lot of books.
I have loved the series of Juan Cabrio and his ship The Oregon and this one is included. There are a series of adventures all leading up yo the final ending adventure. It was a fun read.
farley the most supreme book of the series everything else is fodder acidic putty puddy puddy puddy puddy
