Summary

The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of the high-stakes adventure, Plague Ship, Clive Cussler and Jack du Bril's fifth instalment of The Oregon Files novels. Read by the award-winning narrator Scott Brick.

For four novels, Clive Cussler has charted the exploits of the Oregon, a clandestine spy ship completely dilapidated on the outside, but on the inside packed with sophisticated weaponry and intelligence-gathering equipment. Captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo and manned by a crew of former military and spy personnel, it is a private enterprise, available for any government agency that can afford it - and now Cussler sends the Oregon on its most extraordinary mission yet. 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.

Non stop thrills!

Classic Cussler action. From beginning to end the story rips along with twists and turns keeping the suspense building. This was a story I didn't want to stop listening to and leaves me looking forward to the next edition.

Absolutely Fascinating Tale

I’m reading this in 2020, when we ate even more aware of the effects of Global Warming. The previous novel was So Close in the current world view (not necessarily the political world, who are still dancing around the issue), that it was scary!

Now this novel, tackling another global issue, equally as sensitive and eerily scary, comes around and makes me think that this could be the next Red Flag - overpopulation!

These 2 men have transformed my reading habits over the past 2 months, I’ve devoured all 5 books In this timeframe. Exciting, adventurous, and thought provoking, I hope that there are very many more to come! Scott Brick does a fantastic job in bringing these stories to life!

Way to long a book with that storyline...

Would have given up had I not got an audio book of the story, seemed reactive and farcical.... Like a pound land James bond mixed with Jason Bourne on a magical ship. My first CC book... Not going back for more.

Food for thought.

An intriguing and thought provoking storyline that keeps you on the edge of your seat (typical of Cussler).

Fantastic, as usual for the Oregon Files series!

Great plot, well written and read. Packed with action and elaborate mission plans that border on the rediculous...But that's what makes the Oregon team! Loved it!
