I’ve always been a fan of Clive Cussler novels and took Plague ship with me to read on holiday. Plague Ship is the latest book in the Oregon series which follows the adventures of the undercover spy ship Oregon. I have read the previous books in this series and enjoyed them though felt the last two were slightly similar. However Plague Ship was a great read and really brought on the series.
In a Norwegian glacier during the Second World War a Nazi officer makes an extraordinary discovery – the most legendary ship of all time . . .
Sixty years later Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon – a top-secret, state-of-the-art military vessel disguised as a heap of junk – reap the terrible rewards of this find. In the Persian Gulf they encounter a cruise ship full of dead and dying. As Cabrillo attempts a rescue, the stricken liner erupts into a fireball. Cabrillo escapes with his life, and one survivor.
When Cabrillo decides to probe deeper into this mystery, he finds a powerful cult obsessed with the end of the world. It is a discovery that sees the Oregon and her crew racing against time to prevent a sinister madman from using the secrets of the past to destroy the future . . . Plague Ship is a high-stakes, high-seas adventure you won’t be able to put down.
The book is a great read, and full of twists and turns, I’d recommend it to anyone familier or new to Clive Cussler.
My next read – Stephen Fry in America
