Sarah Broadhurst's view...
Successful big American, ‘boys-own’ authors, obviously chasing the mega-bucks and with insufficient time in a year to write more than one, possibly two books, have spawned a new genre. I call it the franchise thriller. Tom Clancy started the trend by writing outlines and farming the graft out to various folk, so we had Tom Clancy’s Powerplay by Jerome Preisler and such. They are good fun but not in the same league as the genuine article. Now Clive Cussler jumps on the bandwagon again so this is not Dirk Pitt, it’s Juan Cabrillo in the first of the Oregan Files series but it’s equally fast and furious improbable stuff, just what you need for pure escapism.
Golden Buddha by Clive Cussler and Craig Dirgo
The creator of the bestselling NUMA and Dirk Pitt series, is back with his latest and most intriguing high seas action hero: the enigmatic captain of the Oregon, Juan Cabrillo.
Only Cabrillo could convert the interior of a nondescript lumber hauler into a state of the art spy ship-and only he could take the helm on the dangerous covert missions it carries out for whatever U.S. agency pays the price.
In his first feature length adventure, it's up to Cabrillo and his crew of expert intelligence and naval men to put Tibet back in the hands of the Dalai Lama by striking a deal with the Russians and the Chinese. His gambling chip is a golden Buddha containing records of vast oil reserves in the disputed land.
But first, he'll have to locate-and steal-the all-important artifact. And there are certain people who would do anything in their power to see him fail?
