Marauder, Clive Cussler

Marauder opening lines: Captain Omar Rahal tracked the small boat racing across the placid waters of the narrow strait. It was approaching his California-bound oil tanker from dead ahead, and far too quickly to be a fishing boat.


My blurb:

Captain Juan Cabrillo and his team are out testing their new ship. The Oregon is being set through her paces when they are called in to render assistance. It will put them and all their new systems to the test, and then some. Will they be able to work out who is behind the sinister toxic attack? And can they prevent a hostile overtake? Only time and their skill will tell.

A sinister plot that will devastate the Western world. A 2,000-year-old mystery that still lurks in the depths… When Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon answer a distress call from a research ship, nothing can prepare them for what they find.
A strange and dangerous toxin has left the crew helpless, unable to move or speak. And when a further attack leaves hundreds more paralysed, Juan and his team must race to find an antidote before the damage becomes permanent.
Their search for answers leads to a Roman soldier’s long-lost testimony, revealing ancient events that strangely parallel their own. But with time running out and a ruthless enemy determined to seize power at any price, it will take all of Juan’s ingenuity and skill to piece together the millennia-old mystery and save the West from the point of no return…
My verdict:

If you can imagine it, the Oregon has it. And these fancy gadgets and interesting ideas ensure for a good read, no matter the outcome.
