Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul fill the bill for readers looking for suspense, action, adventure, and a bit of history with Silent Sea, the 7th installment of the Oregon Files series featuring tough, smart, tech-savvy Juan Cabrillo. The book works well as a stand alone title.
The drama begins as Juan's crew is retrieving a downed satellite from Argentina and discovers the remains of a WWII blimp. This pushes Juan into a race with the Argentinians and Chinese to prevent them from laying claim to the politically unattached Antarctic continent. The thrills never stop, AND if you listen to the Book on CD read by Scott Brick, you race through the story and are left panting for the next installment. SH
