Juan Cabrillo faces a global deadly threat in Clive Cussler's The Jungle.
Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon are up against their smartest foe yet - but in their midst there is a traitor . . .
After losing their contract with the US government because of a daring raid too far, Cabrillo and his crew of mercenaries with a conscience are earning money the hard way: doing dirty, dangerous little jobs in the world's trouble spots. Now they've accepted a mission deep to find a missing adventurer deep in the jungles of Myanmar.
But it is not long before Cabrillo and his team realise that they have been set up.
Cabrillo - betrayed, tortured and played for a fool - is angry that he's been used as a pawn in someone's deadly scheme. But with the US nuclear launch codes up for grabs and a madman bent on using them to hold millions of lives to ransom, he hasn't time to worry about revenge.
He's got to save the world first . . .
The number-one bestseller Clive Cussler, author of the thrilling Dirk Pitt novels Treasure of Khan andTrojan Odyssey, and co-author Jack Du Brul tell a gripping story of adventure, treachery and betrayal in the eighth Oregon Files novel. The Jungle is preceded by Corsair and The Silent Sea.
Praise for Clive Cussler:
'Frightening and full of suspense . . . unquestionably entertaining' Daily Express
'All-action, narrow escapes and the kind of unrelenting plot tension that has won Cussler hundreds of millions of fans worldwide' Observer
The crew of the Oregon is engaged for a rescue mission that takes them deep into the Burmese jungle where the natural perils are hardly more deadly than the manmade ones. Their quest for the missing daughter of a Swiss billionaire, takes them all over the globe and Juan Cabrillo and crew are caught up in a harrowing race to save the world. This installment in the Oregon Files adventures requires a narrator who can make the most of the drama and suspense without taking it over the top, and Jason Culp is up for the challenge. His voice's rich timbre makes for easy listening, and male characterizations are spot-on. Female voices, however, are not his strong suit: they're either nasal or throaty and make for uncomfortable listening. Fortunately the female dialogue is scant, and this flaw does not detract from what is a fantastical, exciting audiobook. A Putnam hardcover.
