Mirage by Clive Cussler
  

Lovereading view...

An African lake dries up to reveal a large sunken ship and a complete mystery as to how it got there. What ensues is quite startling and rather frightening. Today it seems a bit far-fetched but tomorrow it might well be true, who knows? This is very typical of this author but has the extra ingredient of being very topical. An excellent boy’s own yarn.

If you like Clive Cussler you might also like to read books by Michael Crichton, Robert Ludlum and Richard Preston.

Synopsis

Mirage by Clive Cussler

Mirage is the new heart-in-the-mouth adventure thriller in the Oregon Files from Clive Cussler. October 1943. A US Navy warship vanishes at sea off the coast of Philadelphia. Its disappearance was rumoured to have been a result of a classified military experiment into the effects of electromagnetic radiation. The story has long since been considered a hoax. But Juan Cabrillo and his colleagues aboard the top-secret spy ship Oregon aren't convinced. Now, a powerful new weapon is for sale - one linked to genius inventor Nikola Telsa, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the original Philadelphia experiment? Are his notes in the hands of his enemies? As Cabrillo and his crew race to unearth the truth they discover that stakes are dangerously high. And it may already be too late...Offering an irresistible combination of breakneck pace and audacious plotting that Clive Cussler has made his own, Mirage is state-of-the-art action-adventure. The ninth title in the Oregon Files series, it is preceded by The Jungle and The Silent Sea. Praise for Clive Cussler: Cussler is hard to beat . (Daily Mail). The Adventure King . (Sunday Express). Clive Cussler is the guy I read . (Tom Clancy).

He lives in Arizona. Jack Du Brul is the author of the Philip Mercer series, and the co-author with Cussler of six Oregon Files novels. He lives in Vermont.
