The crew of the Oregon has just completed a top secret mission against Iran in the Persian Gulf, when they come across a cruise ship adrift in the sea. Hundreds of bodies litter its deck, and as ship captain Cabrillo tries to determine what happened, explosions rack the length of the ship. Barely able to escape with his own life and that of the liner's sole survivor, Cabrillo finds himself plunged into a mystery as intricate--and as perilous--as any he has ever known, and pitted against a cult with monstrously lethal plans for the human race ... plans he may already be too late to stop.--From publisher description.… (mere)

The fifth book in the Oregon Files series finds Captain Juan Cabrillo and his high tech crew boarding a cruise ship called the Golden Dawn. Their reconnaissance has indicated the entire crew and all the passenger, except one, have been killed by some sort of hemorrhagic virus. The ship had been leased by a group known as the Responsivists. This group publicly promotes population control and they are secretly planning to use a virus to kill and sterilize most of the population. The crew of the Oregon need to piece together all the information they can before the virus is released on the rest of the world.

For readers not familiar with the Oregon, it's a high tech, state of the art ship, disguised as a rusty old trawler. It's captained by Juan Cabrillo, chairman of the Corporation, a group of freelance operatives who take on undercover jobs for a number of US agencies, as well as private clients.

This is an action packed novel that also incorporates a lot of detailed information about ships and weapons. It's not necessarily great literature but it does keep you interested, especially if you have read any of the other books in the series. These books can easily be read as standalone, because the authors always provide a lot of backstory during the book. I'm looking forward to continuing this series with the next book, Corsair. ( )

De bemanning van de Oregon, een schip dat top-secret missies uitvoert, ontdekt een stuurloos drijvend cruise-schip, met honderden lijken aan boord. Terwijl een onderzoeksteam aan boord gaat, doen er zich een aantal explosies voor, waarop het schip begint te zinken. Op het nippertje weet het team zich in veiligheid te brengen, te zamen met een overlevende.

Het team van Juan Gabrillo komt er achter dat een sekte, het plan heeft om een groot deel van de mensheid te steriliseren door een gebruik te maken van een virus op verschillende cruise-schepen.

De responsivisten, een groep van enkele duizenden leden, denkt dat de wereld ten onder gaat aan het eindeloos 'fokken' van de mensheid en wil hier een eind aan maken.
Het is aan Juan en de bemanning van de Oregon om een einde te maken aan dit plan, maar is het te laat om de mensheid te redden?




De proloog was niet erg interessant voor mij, maar toen ik eenmaal in het boek kwam, was ik verkocht.

This is the 5th book of the series. I liked the others better. This is a long book, 16+ hours....and, in the first three hours, there are three different adventures...leading the reader to believe that the book has no direction. So, I quit reading it--Ive got better things to do with my time. Put this in the category of DNF (did not finish). ( )

Clive Cussler does this well. An exciting adventure story. I couldn't wait to see what happens next. ( )

This was an enjoyable book in the Oregon Files Series, but there were one or two places in the book where you had to suspend belief! They have certainly pulled together an interesting group of characters, and I think this is one of the biggest plot structures that has been pulled together in this series. It was good to get to know some of the lesser known characters in this book. I look forward to continuing this series. ( )

Arguably the greatest transfer of wealth in human history occured when the Plague swept through Europe and killed a third of its population. Lands were consolidated, allowing for a greater standard of living, not only for the owners but also for those who worked them. This event was the single greatest contribution to the Renaissance and gave rise to Europe's eventual domination of the world. -- We're Breeding Ourselves to Death: How Overpopulation Will Destroy Civilization by Dr. Lydell Cooper, Raptor Press, 1977
