Mirage: The Oregon Files, Book 9 | [Clive Cussler, Jack Du Brul]

Mirage: The Oregon Files, Book 9

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?

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.

    "Great fun once again"

    A brief word to Mr Du Brul. Some of us are still waiting for you to keep your promise on returning to a certain Geologist AKA Phillip Mercer, it been 8 years........

    Very good Oregon novel. Better than the last few I hate to say it but to me this was a bit better than the last Dirk Pitt book. Topical and timely in its fiction with the Far East as the area most involved in the story. I will very much recommend this book to any Cussler fan.

    "Cussler, you're getting lazy..."
    Any additional comments?

    If you have read an "Oregon" book, you've read them all. Don't get me wrong, it's still enjoyable, the characters are the ones you know and like, but it's like watching any 1980-2010 James Bond movie. You can pretty much cut and paste plot/bad guy/love interest from one to the other and still have an enjoyable, if predictable, 007 experience. Which brings me back to Cussler's latest effort... Enjoyable, but very formulaic.

    Story
    "Mirage"
    What did you love best about Mirage?

    Good book, Clive brings a story, an idea together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Always Juan, innovative and action-like


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott did an excellent job, his voices made the story more interesting. the minor problems of mispronunciation of places didn't cause too much of a problem. Overall, great job as usual.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to more Juan and the Oregon, maybe with Dirk

    Story
    "Yawn......."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who enjoys gluing things to other things


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

    the story was a glancing blow - be better.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He should study up on his craft - I compare all narrators to Jim Dale


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mirage?

    It would have centered on the tech itself - that was the selling point of the tagline.

    Story
    "Not one of the better books for Cussler"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story is a typical cussler story good suspens, good action and a good performance


    What other book might you compare Mirage to and why?

    This book compares to just about all other books in these cussler series, it is getting old perhaps if you are a newer Cussler reader this may not be the case. CLive time for some new twists for us old timers that have followed you. Throughout the years.
