Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Cussler is the King of Historical Fiction"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is absolutely a book to pass on to friends, if for no other reason than to have someone to talk to about it. It is the type book that seems worthy of discussion and inspection. I actually asked a friend who retired from the Navy if some aspects were "nautically correct": They were.


    Any additional comments?

    Full disclosure I love mysteries, histories, any writer that can weave the two into one story. So please understand I am a Clive Cussler devotee and think everything he writes is good. This however, surpasses that. As you read/listen to this story unfold, you see it playing out in your mind. Imagine the story that has as an outline: The Philadelphia Experiment, Russian Mob, Russian Navy, Ultra-Rich spy hero with his own spy-ship and gadgets, disappearing ships, super yachts, and a bit of death and destruction. How can that recipe NOT turn out good?
    In reality, it does. It has a way of sucking you in until you are immersed in the naval history which may or may not be completely true. Real or not, it is captivating how Cussler manages to weave a story most people know something about (The Philadelphia Experiment) with modern events to tell a completely new story that seems to acknowledge the old story was legend and the new story is reality.
    Excellent and thought provoking, but caution: Do Not Drive a Vehicle while listening! You will be so enraptured with the story that you will visualize the books action instead of the road.

    "Another exciting sea tail."

    Love Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul as a writing team. Also love Scott Brick narrating these stories, so I see this book as another win, win for me.

    The previous book in the series (The Silent Sea) was a little difficult to follow at times but this one is terrific. Great storyline and narrator. Love Scott Brick.

    "Love, Love, Love this book."

    This is my favorite of the Oregon Adventures. There's just something in the way it flows... I've literally read the book once and just finished listening to it for the 3rd time. Scott Brick is fantastic. And so is the Crew of the Oregon.

    "The Genius of Tesla and Cussler"

    I enjoyed the book but the parts concerning Tesla ' s weaponized experiments seemed a little bit over the top, but entertaining nonetheless. I always enjoy Cussler in all forms of his heroes.

    "Twists and Turns Galore!"

    This will be one of my favorites in the Oregon Files. I almost wish Juan hadn't ... well I don't want to give the end away.

    Story
    "Cussler and Tesla a magnetically charged book "

    As imaginative as Tesla was with his engineering, Cussler is with his story telling. The Mirage has you believing that The Oregon and Tesla's ship are as real as the USS Stinson.
