Produktbeschreibungen

From Booklist

Cussler's back, this time with coauthor Dubrul. For those readers who are still counting, it's Cussler's twenty-eighth book. This one involves the clandestine spy ship Oregon, whose crew--led by one Juan Cabrillo--work for what Cussler describes as "high-powered Western interests." Cabrillo's newest employers are a consortium of Japanese shipping tycoons who are being threatened by pirates. The plot includes commercial freighters that are disappearing, missiles that North Korea is selling to Syria, bad guys planting a bomb on a ship that the U.S. wants to destroy, the sinking of a research vessel, covert operations from any number of nations, and the threat of diseases such as typhoid and cholera that could run rampant--and that's just the first 100 pages. These are a few trite lines ("We can't see diddly," for example) and an ending that doesn't come as a surprise, but Cussler's countless fans won't care. George Cohen

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fesselnd, spannend und gut gemacht 18. Juni 2009
Von Silver
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich bin vor etwa zwei Monaten durch Zufall auf die Oregon Files gestoßen und habe mittlerweile bis auf Corsair alle gelesen. Die Grundstory um eine High-Tech-Söldnertruppe ist vielleicht etwas weit hergeholt und Mr. Cussler hat nach meiner Meinung ein paar stilistische Defizite (Anm. ich habe die Bücher alle auf Englisch gelesen), aber die einzelnen Stories sind packend, fesselnd, meist gut aufgebaut und sehr kreativ. Liest sich einfach so weg. Dark Watch ist wieder eine interessante Konstruktion von vermeintlichen Zufällen, die Clive Cussler meisterhaft zusammen webt. Tolles Lesefutter-

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another Great Oregon Files Book! 25. April 2006
Von Grover
Format:Taschenbuch
I KNEW 'Dark Watch' would be without-a-doubt the BEST Oregon Files book to date before I even read it. You can tell from virtually the very first page Du Brul's influence over this series. As another reviewer noted, if you want absolute reality, go read Clancy...however, if you are looking to spend several hours in the world of espionage cloaked in a world of tremendous adventure and quite literally dripping with action and quite a bit of humor, this book definitely fills the bill quite nicely.

First and foremost I noticed rapidly that the introduction of a 'Cast of Thousands' has been done away with. Certainly they all still exist, but the need to make every single one a major player in the storyline no longer dilutes the tale. Kudos to Du Brul for making this drastic -- but absolutely necessary change. One can now concentrate on the here and now and better follow everything going on. Once again, if you are looking for a novel which stretches your intellect or helps you come away feeling better about life in general, you may as well look elsewhere...but for me, I simply enjoy a fun book now and again -- especially one that is written with a great deal of talent. 'Dark Watch' is most assuredly one of those tales. I WILL go so far as say that as good as this book is, the Phillip Mercer books are ALL better...(check out Vulcan's Forge, Charon's Landing, The Medusa Stone, Pandora's Curse, River of Ruin and Deep Fire Rising). If you have tried and gave up on the Oregon Files based on the previous two, I think you OWE it to yourself to see how Cussler has in fact redeemed himself -- or rather, see how Jack Du Brul has done it FOR him. Grand adventure well done! I highly recommend~~The Quest~~von Giorgio Kostantinos.~Dank

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dark Watch Takes The Oregon Files to New Level 26. März 2006
Format:Taschenbuch
USA Today Best-selling author Jack Du Brul takes the reigns of Clive Cussler's successful Oregon Files series and debuts with a knock-out punch in the just released, Dark Watch. Du Brul sets the tone right off the bat with a plausible plot, a breath of fresh air in a time when outlandish scenarios fill the pages of similar adventure novels. This action-packed high seas adventure places the main character, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon in a race for time as pirates and smugglers work the coasts of China and Japan. It's a plot worthy of the finest Dirk Pitt adventure and places the Oregon Files where it belongs, in the high echelon of the best action-adventure novels. Readers will put this book down and immediately want more from this author. The good news is he already has a successful series of adventures published (Vulcan's Forge, Charon's Landing, The Medusa Stone, River of Ruin, and Deep Fire Rising) and another on the way in 2006. I highly recommend this adventure-and-Giorgio Kostantinos'masterful thriller--The Quest--

5.0 von 5 Sternen What the 2 previous Oregon Files novels SHOULD have been... 10. November 2005
Von Jeff Edwards - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I wanted to enjoy 'Golden Buddha' when it first came out -- I REALLY did...but as another reviewer noted, with Juan Cabrillo and the ENDLESS cast of secondary characters that popped up on virtually every single page, I found myself less concerned with where the plot was going, and more on racking my memory for WHO this person was, and had they been introduced before, or are they brand new? I think ANY time a novel feels the need to place a directory at the beginning of the book to remind you of who is IN the book, and it STILL doesn't help, I think you have an idea of where everything is going to end up.

When all is said and done, I STILL enjoyed the first two Oregon Files novels more than I initially thought I would, but I MUST admit they were well below the usual entertainment I have come to expect from the typical Dirk Pitt novels or the NUMA Files stories. On the opposite side, I discovered Jack Du Brul's books about 5-6 years ago and I instantly recognized him as Cussler's Heir when and if he ever stopped writing full-time (which he basically has now that his son has taken over the Dirk Pitt series, and Paul Kemprecos does the bulk of the NUMA novels). I have had the great fortune of having interviewed Mr. Du Brul in the past and found him to be just one really great guy who loves reading Action/Adventure novels every bit as much as the rest of us. It certainly shows in his Phillip Mercer novels (ALL of which are excellent, by the way). I see a great deal of wisdom in Cussler making a move away from Craig Dirgo as a co-author and adding Du Brul to his stable of incredibly successful tales.

I KNEW 'Dark Watch' would be without-a-doubt the BEST Oregon Files book to date before I even read it. You can tell from virtually the very first page Du Brul's influence over this series. As another reviewer noted, if you want absolute reality, go read Clancy...however, if you are looking to spend several hours in the world of espionage cloaked in a world of tremendous adventure and quite literally dripping with action and quite a bit of humor, this book definitely fills the bill quite nicely.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Cussler and Dubrul team up for a 4 star thrill ride! 9. November 2005
Von Bill Pullman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
DuBrul and Cussler Together! What a great read! A great thriller/adventure and what else could you expect when you team up two of the best living thriller writers? Ok its not perfect. It is a bit comic book, but that's to be expected, and a lot of the dialog is cheesy, but over all its an exciting read-much better than other Cussler collaborations. The story involves the Oregon, a top secrete spy ship captained by Juan Cabrillo that is funded by "High Powered" Western interests. Cabrillo and his crew are after a band of modern day Pirates. Commercial freighters are disappearing, N Korea is selling missiles to Syria, the US wants to destroy a commercial ship suspected of carrying a bomb, and oh yeah the world is being threatened by the release of typhoid and cholera-and this is just the start of things! The ending is predictable but this is made up for by the fast pace and the furious action!

4.0 von 5 Sternen action-packed modern day high seas adventure 2. November 2005
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Sea Captain Juan Cabrillo and his dangerous crew of the Oregon normally work special mission impossible oceanic tasks for the west with his team's latest assignment to sabotage the Star. As usual success means greater wealth like $10 million courtesy of his Uncle Sam's "black" budget and more difficult requests.

Juan is a bit surprised when Hiroshi Katsui, representing a consortium of Japanese shipping entrepreneurs, hires their services to stop the increasingly bold and deadly activities of pirates working Asiatic waters from the Sea of Japan to the South China Sea. Juan plans a strategy to deal with a conglomeration of pirates that he assumes has merged under the control of one bold leader. However, as the Oregon crew learns more, Juan realizes that this case of brazen piracy is much more than just this obvious piratical front. He and the Oregonians may be in too deep to pull off this caper as the opponents have heavy sponsors from around the globe using pirates to increase and hide the lucrative international slave trade.

DARK WATCH, the latest Juan Cabrillo modern day high seas adventure, like its predecessors (see GOLDEN BUDDHA and SACRED STONE), is action-packed and never slows down until the final payout. The story line feels more like a comic book than a novel in nature, but is fun to follow as Juan and crew go from the frying pan to the fire to even hotter scenarios. Though not quite the Pitts, fans of the Oregon Files will enjoy this latest lighthearted caper against North Koreans (who else on the seas?) and an international consortium of "moguls" who use murder as a business tool to enhance their thriving slave operations.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The series finally gains traction 9. November 2005
Von Jack E. Stoudenmire Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This spin-off series, based on a ship introduced in one of Cussler's Dirk Pitt adventures, had a rocky start. The first couple of books bogged down in tedious play-by-play. The fact Cussler used a different co-author on each didn't help.

With Dark Watch, Cussler brings Jack DuBrul into the fold, and it's a good fit. Cussler brings a mature voice to the prose, while DuBrul seems to limit some of Cussler's excesses.

Forget the plot. You can read about it elsewhere. I'm concentrating on whether the reader will like it, and I believe the answer is "yes." The characters are engaging and likeable, the action steady, and the pacing very comfortable.

This is not Deighton, Le Carré, Ludlum, or Clancy. This is lightweight techno-thriller stuff, perfect for an evening's entertainment or while travelling during the holidays. I'm encouraging everyone who enjoys Cussler's and DuBrul's work to grab this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The spin-off I've been waiting for 9. November 2005
Von overworked-underread - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As a long-time Cussler fan I have to admit the Oregon Files series has been a big disappointment. The Numa Files books are great but this second spin-off fell flat. I never cared about the characters - all five million of them, it seemed - and the plots were cartoonish. I wasn't going to buy Dark Watch except I saw there was another co-writer. Boy am I glad I did. Dark Watch is the book I thought this series should have been from the start. Cussler and Dubrul together have hit a home run. The action starts on page one, accelerates thoughout the entire novel and ends with a scene that had me on the edge of my seat. And we finally get a sense of what makes Juan Cabrillo and his band of mercenaries tick. While they are still developing I can at least understand why they have all this money and still put themselves at risk. The double meaning of the title was terrific.

After finishing it I went out and picked up River of Ruin, one of DuBrul's solo efforts. If anything it surpasses even some of Clive's books. His main character - Philip Mercer - is awesome. So not only can I look forward to a lot more Oregon Files from Cussler/Dubrul but there's a whole other series of books to read.

I'm glad I took that extra second to see Clive had a new co-writer.
