Me, a huge fan of the Oregon Files? You never have to ask me that question twice, yes, and then again yes. I just love the work they have done with this series from the get go. More on that in a minute: today on The G-ZONE ,our blogtalk radio show, Big Daddy Abel dropped by; catch it on the archives, and on Weds. John DeDakis, author/instructor/ and CNN Producer will be stopping by at 8.30amEST, breakfast with the G-Man. Good stuff, so please join us for the fun , good conversation and merriment. Back to the novel at hand shall we? What is contained with the pages of this page turner? Here you go:
“Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese Highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.
A devastating new weapon unleashed in thirteenth-century China...a daring rescue in the snowbound mountains along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border...a woman gone missing in the jungles of northern Thailand and Myanmar...for Cabrillo and his crew, all of these events will come together-leading to the greatest threat against U.S. security that the world has ever known. “
Juan and the crew are on the outside looking in on this one. They did the right thing in the last novel and are now paying the price for their rightness. Isn’t that just the way it is? Well Cussler /DuBrul put together a dandy here in The Jungle and take us on another world- wide trip that has plenty of twists, turns, action and subplots. I for one totally enjoyed the read and found it to contain little if any dead pages to read. The action was constant, the dialogue was great, and most of all we get to learn more and more about the characters and what makes them, well, them. I am all for that, total satisfaction to be had. If you haven’t read one of these fun, engaging, light reads yet, don’t fret, you will not feel left out or that you need to have started at the beginning to be in on all of it. That I think is one of the added bonuses, you can jump in at any time and not feel like an outsider looking in. Juan and the crew make feel like you are one of them and that you too are part of The Corporation.
