A sunken treasure in a remote Washington State pit...a Chinese takeover of part of Antarctica...a shoot-out aboard a Mississippi casino steamboat. Where else could all this take place but in a Cussler novel? This seventh "Oregon Files" adventure, following Corsair-the Books on Tape/Penguin Audio edition of which received a starred review, LJ 8/09-brings back Juan Cabrillo and his band of supersleuths, who are this time trying to keep a vicious group of Argentine soldiers from establishing a foothold on the frozen continent with the help of their Chinese friends. Audie Award winner Scott Brick (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09) sustains just the right tone throughout this enjoyable mix of humor and nail-biting suspense. Recommended.
