Publisher's Summary

For five novels, Clive Cussler has brought listeners into the world of the Oregon, a seemingly dilapidated ship packed with sophisticated equipment, and captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo. And now the Oregon and its crew face their biggest challenge yet.

Corsairs are pirates, and pirates come in many different varieties. There are the pirates who fought off the Barbary Coast in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the contemporary pirates who infest the waters of Africa and Asia, and the pirates...who look like something else.

When the U.S. secretary of state's plane crashes while bringing her to a summit meeting in Libya, the CIA, distrusting the Libyans, hires Juan Cabrillo to search for her, and their misgivings are well founded. The crew locates the plane, but the secretary of state has vanished. It turns out Libya's new foreign minister has other plans for the conference, plans that Cabrillo cannot let happen.

But what does it all have to do with a 200-year-old naval battle and the centuries-old Islamic scrolls that the Libyans seem so determined to find? The answers will lead him full circle into history, and into another pitched battle on the sea, this time against Islamic terrorists, and with the fate of nations resting on its outcome.

Take another thrilling voyage with the Oregon Files.

Action packed Cussler

This is a really action packed book. I really enjoy Cussler but at some points this was a bit much. Juan did some things that make James Bond look like an amateur. All that being said, if you like Cussler's style and the Oregon Files series, you'll love this. If you haven't read any of the series but like action/espionage you won't be disappointed.

Corsair extrordinare

This was one of the best Clive Cussler books I have read with great relationship of current events and past history. The patriotic and "do the right thing" approach to events allowed my total buy-in and made me feel involved in the adventure.

fighting Barbary Pirates

What I like about Clive Cussler’s books is they always opening with something of the past that relates to what’s going on in the present. I have not check the facts in every book of Cussler’s I have read but the ones I have the facts in the past are correct it is what he does with them in the future that the fun begins. Corsair is the 6th novel in the Oregon series and it’s about a battle with the Barbary Pirates. As a fan of Navel History I am aware of the role the United States Navy and Marines played in President Jefferson’s first war. The war with Tripoli was short but showed the world the United States maybe a young country but it would not be pushed around by pirates. This war made it into the Marine Corp’s anthem “to the shores of Tripoli.” I wished I had read the Oregon series in order, this book provided a great deal more information about the Oregon ship than the newer books in the series. Juan Cabrillo and the men and women of the Oregon were fighting Pirates off Somali when ordered to go to Libya to rescue the Secretary of State Fiona Katamiora who was captured by terrorists. Cussler is famous for his fast past action, his protagonists get out of one problem and plunge immediately into another, the last minute saves makes it difficult to put the book down. The story is good entertainment and well written. Scott brick performs his usual great narration.

Great listen

This was one of the best reads/listen that I have experienced. The characters are well placed in each of the different scenarios and of course the principal character always comes through in a clutch. Great read/listen.

as always Cussler delivers

full of twists and turns, what you would expect from Cusler. Oregon FIles are my favorite series, and he never fails to amaze me with his surprise endings. To bad hollywood hasnt caught on yet, what a series of movies these would make.

Great summertime read

If you a fan of Cussler you won't be disappointed and if you're new to his works you'll enjoy his tale of good versus evil in his usual swashbuckling style. Nothing deep here but a fun read.

Absolute Best of the Best of the Oregon Files

What a great story and cast of characters. Held my interest every step of the way. Mr Cussler has outdone himself on this one. I haven't read all his books yet, but I have a feeling this is his best work of all!
