Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Corsair, Clive Cussler and Jack du Brul's sixth instalment in the action-packed series, The Oregon Files. Read by the award-winning narrator Scott Brick.

Over five novels, Clive Cussler has brought readers into the world of the Oregon, a seemingly dilapidated ship packed with sophisticated equipment, and captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo. And now the Oregon and its crew face their biggest challenge yet. Corsairs are pirates, and pirates come in many different varieties. There are the pirates who fought off the Barbary Coast in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the contemporary pirates who infest the waters of Africa and Asia and the pirates...who look like something else.

When the U.S. Secretary of State's plane crashes while bringing her to a summit meeting in Libya, the CIA, distrusting the Libyans, hire Cabrillo to search for her; their misgivings prove to be well founded. The crew locates the plane - but the Secretary of State has vanished. It turns out Libya's new foreign minister has other plans for the conference, plans Cabrillo cannot let happen. But what does it all have to do with a 200-year-old naval battle, and the centuries-old Islamic scrolls that the Libyans seem so determined to find? The answers will lead Cabrillo full circle into history and into another pitched battle on the sea, this time against Islamic terrorists, and with the fate of nations resting on its outcome.

Corsair _

This is a really good story, with the usual interlinking of p!ot and subplot making it captivating.

Yet another triumph by Cussler, du Brul and Brick

I could picture it as I heard it. Edge of your seat kind of story. Definately not a disappointment.

Wonderful right to the end

I would recommend this book to every one who enjoys Clive cussler
As usual I was spellbound to the end. The story was great and held my attention. I was unable to sleep until the book was finished. It was a great listen just like all Clive's books.

Wow!

Wow! Wow! Wow! The absolute BEST so far (& that’s saying something)!

There was only ONE paragraph of this book that I didn’t like: SPOILER ALERT _*********
The female archaeologist spit at

someone, the repercussions of
which, were totally avoidable, if
she HADN’T done so! It left a bad
taste in my mind, heart and soul. I
couldn’t like that character after that!

The finale was amazing and astounding!

Not as engaging as other oregon files

If you could sum up Corsair in three words, what would they be?

Less than 5 Star

What was one of the most memorable moments of Corsair?

Geeting M. Didi on the ship

Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Scott is a pleasure to listen too. I wish he spoke faster
