Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Dark Watch by Clive Cussler and Jack De Burl, read by Scott Brick.

Juan Cabrillo and his motley crew aboard the clandestine spy ship Oregon have made a very comfortable, and very dangerous living from working for high-powered Western interests. But their newest clients have come from the east - the Far East - to ask for Cabrillo's special brand of assistance. They are a consortium of Japanese shipping magnates, and their fortunes are being threatened by brutal pirates trawling the waters of Southeast Asia.

Normally, such attacks on the high seas are limited to smaller ships and foreign-owned yachts - easy targets on the open ocean. Now, however, giant commercial freighters are disappearing.

Cabrillo suspects that the pirates have joined forces to take down the bigger ships. But when the Oregon confronts the enemy, he learns that the pirates' predations hide a deadly international conspiracy - a scheme of death and slavery that Juan Cabrillo is going to blow out of the water....

Very action packed

Where does Dark Watch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best narrators Ive listened to yet.

What did you like best about this story?

Great pace. Natural and very expressive with good depiction of each character's voice, particularly enjoyed Tori who he made sound like a very seductive Lady Penelope. Would definitely be happy to listen to anything he narrates.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Those With Eddie Seng

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The attempts by the Oregon to pull the cruise boat with the Chinese captves off the shore just as the volcano is about to blow.

Any additional comments?

This is how narration should be done, even Lady Penelope that really made me smile.

dark watch

i was given a clive cussler book for fathers day years ago. i loved it! clive and jack's level of detail and realism against the pure fun of a "boy's own tale" mean that you can't put them down. when i saw them available on audible i was overjoyed.
