|Summary, etc.:|| Only Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon stand between two warring moguls and global havoc in this thrilling suspense novel in Clive Cussler's #1 New York Times bestselling series. Nearly two thousand years ago, an Eastern emperor charged a small group with safeguarding secrets powerful enough to change the history of mankind. They went down in legend as the Nine Unknown Men—and now two rival factions of their descendants are fighting a mighty battle. Both sides think they are saving the world, but their tactics could very well bring about the end of humankind. Soon, Juan Cabrillo and his team of expert operatives aboard the Oregon find themselves trapped between two power-hungry adversaries, both of whom are willing to use shocking means to accomplish their goals. Cabrillo and the team must divide and conquer as they fight dual threats, which include a supercomputer at sea and satellites that can wipe out technology across the globe—including the high-tech weapons on board the Oregon. The crew must rely on their unique skills to stop the tyrants in their tracks and save the earth from a dynasty of terror.

The fourth Cussler/Morrison collaboration is the thirteenth in the Oregon Files series. A couple of decades ago, according to legend, a secret society known only as the Nine Unknown Men was formed to keep certain potentially world-altering knowledge from falling into the wrong hands. Now different factions descended from the Nine Unknown Men are fighting each other, and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. Unless, of course, Juan Cabrillo and his team of adventurers can stop a war that has been brewing for more than 2,000 years. It's pretty formulaic stuffâevery Oregon Files story has the same ingredientsâand, as usual, the writing is functional at best. Cussler's sizable following, however, remains devoted and will be pleased by something new. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
