Publisher's Summary

Juan Cabrillo and his motley crew aboard the clandestine spy ship Oregon have made a very comfortable and very dangerous living working for high-powered Western interests. But their newest clients have come from the Far East to ask for Cabrillo's special brand of assistance: a consortium of Japanese shipping magnates whose fortunes are being threatened by brutal pirates trolling the waters of Southeast Asia.

Normally, such attacks on the high seas are limited to smaller ships and foreign-owned yachts - easy targets on the open ocean. Now, however, giant commercial freighters are disappearing. But when Cabrillo confronts the enemy, he learns that the pirates' predations hide a deadly international conspiracy - a scheme of death and slavery that Juan Cabrillo is going to blow out of the water.

Good Fun. Might be the Best.

If your are a Cussler fan you already know how good his work is. This is a classic Oregon story with a current day theme. Cabrillo and his motley crew are at their best. If you've never read one of the Oregon series books, they are a little bit James Bond, a little bit Mission Impossible, a little bit Indiana Jones. This book stands on it's own. I think after having read them all that this one might be the best. I'm not sure why it was re-released but its very relevant. One problem I noticed this was from the CD Version and they didn't edit out the "end of disc" dubs.

Love Cussler but.....

Hate the sex scenes. To me it muddies up the story and distracts for the good things the crew of the Oregon do.

Good Book, but 2005 CD's

As usual a top flight job the team of Cussler, Du Brul and Brick! Problem is that it's the 2005 CD's put together for audible; they didn't even edit out the CD headers! I mean it's all brain candy, but I have the CD's somewhere. Still an enjoyable escape!

Tired of authors who just copy an old story

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

I love this series about Juan Cabrillo and the exploits of his merry group of people but I am tired of having a older storie written just to sell a book. When a new story about this boat and its owners comes along I am quick to give it a listen. Problem is that there appears to the same sory wit minor twists just to sell a book.

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

How about writing a good original story rather than just trying to write a story to get a paycheck. Some original thoughts would be nice.

What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

Great job

What character would you cut from Dark Watch?

You don't have to cut out a person just need to use original material.

Any additional comments?

Try some originality I love the series but maybe

voices seemed off. but I think this is an earlier read by Scott, so it might me comparing to his later reads of Clive Cussler books.

Much much better.

Fun pace. Liked Scott Brick. Wish he would narrate the first two and I could get two replacement copies. J. Charles was hard to listen to.
