Skeleton Coast | [Clive Cussler]

Skeleton Coast

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the covert combat ship Oregon have barely escaped a mission on the Congo River when they intercept a mayday from a defenseless boat under fire off the African coast. Cabrillo takes action, saving the beautiful Sloane Macintyre - who's looking for a long-submerged ship that may hold a fortune in diamonds. But what surprises Cabrillo is her story about a crazy fisherman who claims to have been attacked on the open sea by giant metal snakes in the same area.

Publisher's Summary

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the covert combat ship Oregon have barely escaped a mission on the Congo River when they intercept a mayday from a defenseless boat under fire off the African coast. Cabrillo takes action, saving the beautiful Sloane Macintyre - who's looking for a long-submerged ship that may hold a fortune in diamonds. But what surprises Cabrillo is her story about a crazy fisherman who claims to have been attacked on the open sea by giant metal snakes in the same area.

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.

    "New to Clive Cussler"

    I have only just started reading Clive Cussler. Tumbled onto him by accident.... I always thought he wrote stuff like Louis L'Amour -- boy, was I wrong. I have THOUROUGHLY enjoyed this series (Juan Cabrillo) and can't get enough now.

    Terrific, interesting, fast-paced, great characters - just wonderful. Of course, Scott Brick brings the characters to life so well....

    "Clive Cussler + Scott Brick = Great Experience"

    An interesting and current story involving radical environmentalists, uprising in African countries, and high seas adventure, with a few diamonds thrown in for added interest. I have not read a bad Clive Cussler book yet, and the Audible books narrated by Scott Brick are the best. Makes me want more.

    "Dependably entertaining, if not terribly original"

    Let's face it. We don't read Clive Cussler because we are expecting something new and different. We know we'll get a good, fun, improbable, pretty long piece of entertainment. Cussler never fails to deliver the goods. Every story will have The Hero in some impossible situation and he will be saved by Deus Ex Machina, sometimes in the form of the author, depending on which series one is reading. This one is no exception. I am rather fonder of the Dirk Pitt books than this series, probably because Dirk has flashing green eyes, but hey, it's still good fun, even if I can't remember anything about the book's plot half an hour after I finish reading. And I really enjoy learning stuff about the oceans and their ecology. Any book from which I can take knowledge is not time wasted.

    "Skeleton Coast"

    Just enough to not be the same old tired story! And Scot Brick delivers a nail biting performance.

    "Why Use Profanity At All?"

    What an incredible, pure, story of good prevailing, evil defeated, heroism. It goes chapter after chapter then the gratuitous - yet mild - profanity. Clive could write forever without a cuss word and it would not affect the pure entertainment of his books.

    "skeleton coat review"

    This book was very good and had interesting and suprising events. The ideas were not easy to predict and though unusual, were somehow believable. My husband felt the book "drug" toward the end, bur I enjoyed it all.

    Audible Books have allowed me to be a "reader". I now enjoy novels and stories I never knew about.

    Story
    "The best character Clive Cussler has developed"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Skeleton Coast to be better than the print version?

    Yes the narration makes it live for me


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Very much


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Juan Calbaro


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I like to spread it out, to enjoy it longer


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the rest of the series, but would love Audible to get Books, 1,2&3

    "A sub-par entry"

    This book struck me one of the weakest of the Juan Cabrillo series. It seemed hastily constructed and didn't fit together well.

    Story
    "Cliffhanger with no cliff"

    One obvious chase scene after another with ludicrous situations such as a prolonged conversation with the top half of a man's body after bottom was chopped off.
