Mirage, Clive Cussler

Mirage opening line: By the time the echo from the first knock on his door rebounded off the back of his cabin, Captain Charles Urquhart was fully awake.

My blurb:

This book, written together with Jack Du Brul is gripping from start to finish. Juan Cabrillo together with his team aboard the Oregon travel from North Siberia, to China, with diversions along the way to prove that ships cannot be teleported around the world! They have every imaginable weapon and military toy available to them, and in this book make great use of each and every one of them to save the lives of people they are tasked to protect, recover billions in stolen money, and prevent a war!

Mirage
In October 1943 a US destroyer vanished out of Philadelphia, the result of a Navy experiment with electromagnetic radiation. The story was considered a hoax – but Juan Cabrillo and his Oregon colleagues aren’t convinced.
Now, a new weapon is for sale – one linked to the great inventor Nikola Tesla, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the experiment? Are his notes in the hands of enemies? As Cabrillo races to unearth the truth, he discovers that the stakes are dangerously high – but it may already be too late…
My verdict:

They are a force that do not really exist and are a part of the American arsenal that no one really knows about. I have not read every one of the 9 books in this series, but each one is credible enough to make you wonder! Rush out and get yourself a copy of this book.

First published in the United States of America by G.P. Putnam’s Sons in 2013

  1. do you know (I stand corrected on this) that Clive Cussler mostly doesn’t write his books anymore? He is a brand now, comes up with the ideas and then hands it over to other writers in his team to write. When I first heard this I was quite enraged until I reminded myself that the likes of Karl Lagerfield doesn’t create all his products, and rather a team of designers do. I do believe Wilbur Smith is about to do this to

    1. I would not be surprised if you were correct on this. I see all his recent books are ‘co-authored’. It does not bother me if he is open about it 🙂
