This novel is a wild ride from start to finish that keeps you turning the pages and makes me wish I had the time to go back and read the previous 8 Oregon Files books right away instead of putting them on my ginormous TBR because I enjoyed this one so much!

Synopsis

The extraordinary new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from the grand master of adventure.

In October 1943, a U.S. destroyer sailed out of Philadelphia and supposedly vanished, the result of a Navy experiment with electromagnetic radiation. The story was considered a hoax—but now Juan Cabrillo and his Oregon colleagues aren’t so sure.

There is talk of a new weapon soon to be sold, something very dangerous to America’s interests, and the rumors link it 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 find the truth, he discovers there is even more at stake than he could have imagined—but by the time he realizes it, he may already be too late…

The conclusion is the usual Cussler nail-biter, though no one ever really expects Juan and his crew to come in second-best.

As for drama and tension…there is no lack here. Cussler/Du Brul will keep you on the edge of your seat with foot, sea, and snowmobile chases; rescues from prison, florists, the deep, and capsized boats; and, pirates of all sorts. It’s a fun, escapist read...
