What begins as a snake hunt leads Cabrillo onto the trail of a far more lethal quarry - a deranged militant and his followers who plan to unleash the devastating power of nature itself against all who oppose them.

The intrigue and how all of the sub plots and bad guys get tied together. I like the good guys flexible moral approach to dealing with the villains.
Cabrillo has to be a favorite since he is the brain child to the Oregon. I loved the way Sloane was brought in as a no nonsense but tough character. she eventually softens as she finds out more about Juan and realizes she can't have what she wants.
Scott is good at telling the story. He allows your mind to wander to other possibilities as he leads you through the story.
I didn't cry but there always seems to be sections of the stories that Clive puts in to lighten the mood and Scott makes you laugh at them.
Read this book and you will be hooked on Oregon.
61 years old, degrees in behavior science and business. Fascinated w/ anthropology & past civilizations. This book should be a documentary
Good storyline and plot development.
if you like Cussler adventure novels this will not disappoint
Good listen for all ages
Reasonable adventure story. Mostly a mindless distraction kind of listen. The recording was sloppy; here was a notification every so often that it was the end of a disc 1, 2, 3, etc. a few mispronounced words. Good to listen to while cleaning the house.
I have not always enjoyed the long historical set-up that is the hallmark of Clive Cussler, but I've always appreciated it. He really works to create an interesting "history" to kick off his stories. Like it or not (I've grown to like it) he forces you to hold on to the past when you read his books. This book wasn't an out of the park "5" on the rating scale but you would be really hard pressed to give the Cussler/Brick combo less than a "4" even if the story was miserable. This one is not bad. Definitely one to add to your library.
Yes!!! I was instantly hooked with the Fargo Adventures. This one doesn't have much of an interesting storyline for me, i could never get into it and hardly remember most of the book. The Fargo Adventures is now easily my 4th favorite series of all time!
From the first few words to final parting, I was hooked and guessing on the outcome and how each part will work together to make a final book. Great. You won't do wrong by starting this book...
I listened to this book with head phones on the couch, I think all of my family thought I was crazy. I could not move.
Action Action Action!
The story was well written, great depth of characters back stories, just a fun read!
No extreme reaction but it made me want to get another clive cussler book.
I was not sure about the combination of two authers. But it worked well. I Used to read Clive Cussler when I was younger and enjoyed them. His Later Works not as good. Maybe my taste is changing? This was a tyhpical Book from this author and well worth the listen. Tone and inflection is sometimes annoying. Would recommend.
Big Cussler fan but this one left me blah. Not sure why - it just wasn't as developed as the others. Maybe my expectation was too high after reading the Isaac Bell books.
