As those who read my Blog regularly know that Clive Cussler is one of my favourite authors and he is also one of the authors who has managed to get very good co-writers for his books. This is the one I am reading at the moment.
The Oregon is a very unique ship, made to look like a beaten down tramp steamer, when in fact it is a hightly sophisticated ship inside. It is run by The Corporation who consist of ex-CIA, ex-Marines, ex-anything who have the skills needed to carry out covert operations around the World led by Juan Cabrillo.
In this book they are trying to trace the Nine Unknown who hold scrolls of knowledge passed down through the centries from the original Nine Unknown. They have grown into huge corporations and businesses because of the knowledge but one of the Nine now wants to take it all and run the World. The Corporation need to find out who the Nine are and try and stop the One!
I have only just got a quarter of the way through it but it is living up to Mr Cussler’s excellent sense of adventure and is just the right book for me to escape this dreary January weather!!!!!
There are several different novels by Mr Cussler all with different and exciting characters and anyone would be a good starting point. The first one I read of his was “Treasure” which is the ninth of the Dirk Pitt series and that definitely carries you away to foreign lands and adventures.
Tomorrow DH, Youngest, Girlfriend and I are off to London so I will have lots of pictures to show you on Monday
Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget if the weather is bad, grab a book and disappear for a few hours to another World!!!
