Clive Cussler is the author of more than fifty books in five bestselling series, including Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Fargo. His life nearly parallels that of his hero Dirk Pitt. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he and his NUMA crew of volunteers have discovered more than seventy-five lost ships of historic significance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley, which was raised in 2000 with much press publicity. Like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features more than eighty examples of custom coachwork. Cussler lives in Arizona and Colorado. Jack Du Brul is the author of the Philip Mercer series, most recently Havoc, and is the coauthor with Cussler of the Oregon Files novels Dark Watch, Skeleton Coast, Plague Ship, and Corsair. He lives in Vermont.
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.
