Marauder : A Novel of the Oregon Files
by Cussler, Clive; Morrison, Boyd

Aboard the Oregon, one of the most advanced spy ships ever built, Juan Cabrillo and his team of expert operatives go up against nemeses as they prepare for yet another dangerous mission.

Clive Cussler is the author of more than seventy books in five bestselling series, including Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Sam and Remi Fargo. His life nearly parallels that of his hero Dirk Pitt. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he and his NUMA crew of volunteers have discovered and surveyed more than seventy-five lost ships of historic significance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley, which was raised in 2000 with much publicity. Like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features more than one hundred examples of custom coachwork. Cussler and his wife make their home in Arizona.

Boyd Morrison is the coauthor with Cussler of the Oregon Files novels Piranha, The Emperor's Revenge, Typhoon Fury, and Shadow Tyrants, and the author of six other books. He is also an actor and engineer, with a doctorate in engineering from Virginia Tech, who has worked on NASA's space station project at Johnson Space Center and developed several patents at Thomson/RCA. In 2003, he fulfilled a lifelong dream by becoming a Jeopardy! Champion. He lives in Seattle.

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the high-tech vessel Oregon swing back into action in this exciting adventure. On his deathbed, a billionaire bequeaths a terrible chemical poison to a group of terrorists. To find an antidote, Cabrillo and his colleagues must solve an ancient historical mystery and do battle with modern-day assassins. As installments of the Oregon Files series go, this one is entirely typical: lots of action, characters fleshed out just enough to get the job done, dialogue that often feels like first-draft material. (The book's most noteworthy aspect is probably that it is one of the last books Cussler worked on before his death in February 2020.) Still, there is enough action and suspense here to keep adventure fans turning the pages; even though we know Cabrillo and associates will emerge triumphant, we want to see exactly how it all works out. A solid entry in a reliable action series. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
