About the Book

For four novels, Clive Cussler has charted the exploits ofthe Oregon, a covert ship completely dilapidated on theoutside but, on the inside, packed with sophisticatedweaponry and intelligence-gathering equipment. Captained bythe rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo and manned by a crew offormer military and spy personnel, it is a private enterprise,available for any government agency that can afford it—and now Cussler sends the Oregon on its most extraordinarymission yet.The crew has just completed a top secret mission againstIran in the Persian Gulf, when they come across a cruise shipadrift in the sea. Hundreds of bodies litter its deck, and asCabrillo tries to determine what happened, explosions rack thelength of the ship. Barely able to escape with his own life andthat of the liner's sole survivor, Cabrillo finds himself plungedinto a mystery as intricate—and as perilous—as any he hasever known, and pitted against a cult with monstrously lethalplans for the human race . . . plans he may already be too late tostop.Plague Ship is a high-stakes, high-seas journey that provesonce again that Cussler is "just about the best storyteller in thebusiness" (New York Post).
