Shadow Tyrants opening line: The air reeked of smoke and burnt flesh.
In 261 BC, Ashoka the Terrible realized how destructive man could be. The Mauryan Emperor decided to split the knowledge of the universe between 9 men. They were known as the Nine Unknown. Now over 2200 years later, the men have come together. They have a plan to control the world with a super computer. AI intelligence that will change everything. But one man is out to thwart him, and the Oregon team are after him.
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 a body of knowledge and 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 the descendants are fighting a mighty battle.Both sides think they are saving the world, but one of them is willing to use horrifying means to accomplish its goals. Now it is up to Cabrillo and his team of expert operatives to stop both of them from the destructive path they’re on, and save the earth from a dynasty of terror.
I love the Clive Cussler books and the ones from The Oregon Files are excellent. Part myth, and part what if, this latest novel is a good read. Not the best one in the series, but still a book I would recommend.
