Juan Cabrillo and his motley crew aboard the clandestine spy ship Oregon have made a very comfortable and very dangerous living working for high-powered Western interests. But their newest clients have come from the Far East to ask for Cabrillo's special brand of assistance: a consortium of Japanese shipping magnates whose fortunes are being threatened by brutal pirates trolling the waters of Southeast Asia. Normally, such attacks on the high seas are limited to smaller ships and foreign-owned yachts-easy targets on the open ocean. Now, however, giant commercial freighters are disappearing. But when Cabrillo confronts the enemy, he learns that the pirates' predations hide a deadly international conspiracy-a scheme of death and slavery that Juan Cabrillo is going to blow out of the water.… (mere)

Good read ( )

The 3rd book in The Oregon Chronicles. Juan accepts a contract to chase down some pirates and chases them down to save world commerce and the banking system. It's a fast paced thriller that won't let you put it down...not always believable, but that's OK. Our hero meets a girl near the end, but not much romance ensues. Ahhh? ( )

Juan Cabrillo, captain of the Oregon and Chairman of the Corporation, accepts a job to find and stop a ring of pirates that are preying on ships in the Pacific Ocean. Their state of the art ship is disguised to lure the pirates. When that inevitably happens, they sink the pirate ship and manage to save a large container that had been on the deck. After they open it they discover it is filled with dead bodies, probably migrants trying to escape to better conditions. They also find a sinking ship that still has one passenger alive and must perform some tricky steps to get her out before it sinks.

Dark Watch is action-packed and never slows down until the final scene. The story line feels more like a Mission Impossible movie than a novel, but is fun to follow as Cabrillo and his crew save themselves in some pretty tension-filled scenarios. I was not much of a fan of the first two books in this series, which Cussler wrote with Craig Dirgo. The change to new co-author Jack du Brul was a great move and added some real character development to the mixture. Fans of the Oregon Files will enjoy this latest adventure to stop an international banking syndicate who plan use murder as a business tool to build up their human slave trade.

Não é biografia, nem ensaio, nem história; parecem memórias, mas o subtítulo indica "narrativa", por vezes parecem artigos soltos de jornal, mas não se limita a factos, apresenta muitos rumores ("Amigos dizem-no pedófilo, secreto de aventuras, amancebado com a governanta Maria"), é muito opinativo, e interpreta, sem fundamentar, como se o autor fosse omnisciente. De capítulo para capítulo, os temas e os tempos variam, neste Salazar acabou de morrer, dois capítulos à frente, ainda está a ser operado. Aqui fala-se de turismo sexual nos anos 60 (as festas gay de Cliff Richard, a intimidade do exilado Rei Humberto de Itália com os pescadores e militares de Cascais, a Madeira, "uma flor carnívora internacional"), duas ou três páginas adiante descreve-se o acidente que vitimou Duarte Pacheco 20 anos antes e a seguir saltamos para os exilados e os clandestinos de esquerda. Enfim, baralhou-me... e também me dececionou, porque acredito que a temática Salazar/Estado Novo e a riqueza da vida e das memórias de Fernando Dacosta merecia outro tratamento literário. ( )
