I find myself quite thoroughly enjoying these "Novels of the Oregon Files" by Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul.
The action grabs you, and next thing you know, it's 2 a.m.
I've read every Dirk Pitt novel Cussler wrote, so you can imagine my delight to see " a whole new world" of adventure, danger, high-tech gear, and of course, the beautiful and highly intelligent damsel!
Thank you ever so much.

The Plague Ship
There are books that never involve the reader. I’ve read my fair share of them --- or started to at least. Maybe out of a sense of obligation to the topic or genre or the author. Sometimes this sense of obligation made me read more than was reasonable. Well, this is NOT such a book Page three and the book’s got you: hook, line, and sinker. That’s just the kind of writer Cussler is. His story line is compelling and so is the in which he writes it.
The premise of the plot is huge. A most awe-inspiring cult attempts to save humanity from itself and from “breeding itself to death” It will do this by waging bio-warfare with grave consequences against all of humanity. The cold war is over so now the free-market forces must defend the world against this evil cult. And that’s what the story is all about. Their maneuvers are improbable if not outright impossible outside the special effects department. But therein lies the charm of this action-packed testosterone confection.
Clive Cussler is another of those authors who has the gift for spinning an engaging yarn of subterfuge, deceit, derring-do, and to blend this with equal amounts of intrigue, boldness, and audacity. He practices a style of writing perfected by the best practitioners of this craft: the writers for vintage Mission Impossible and 007. Custer has written over thirty books and sold millions of them --- he must know what he’s doing and what the reading public wants. And he delivers again.
Is this book worth reading? What do you think?

The crew has just completed a top secret mission against Iran in the Persian Gulf, when they come across a cruise ship adrift in the sea. Hundreds of bodies litter its deck, and as Cabrillo tries to determine what happened, explosions rack the length of the ship. Barely able to escape with his own life and that of the liner's sole survivor, Cabrillo finds himself plunged into a mystery as intricate—and as perilous—as any he has ever known, and pitted against a cult with monstrously lethal plans for the human race . . . plans he may already be too late to stop.
