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.

This remark is about to tell you just how long my memory is, as for me, this book felt like ‘Mission Impossible’ meets the ‘A Team’, a mission so impossible that only the A Team could succeed. People of my vintage will understand exactly of what I speak. Juan Carbrillo and his team of, lets face it, mercenaries are, once again, taking the fight to the bad guys. This time round these bad guys are nothing more than human effluent. The mission is to put a stop to some very violent high sea piracy that has been happening in the Sea of Japan. But as things progress Juan soon realises that the piracy problem is only the tip of the iceberg. The real problem is people smuggling which in turn is a disguise for human slavery. This is a very slick thriller/adventure story that wraps itself around some very confronting and real issues. This might be a work of fiction but there is enough evidence around to support the reality of human slavery in the 21st century, hard to believe but true none the less. I gave the book 3.5 stars not because it didn’t entertain but because I felt that the subject of slavery is too important for this Mission Impossible type of approach. At the same time I have to congratulate the author ‘Clive Cussler’ for putting a spotlight on is disgraceful reality. A slick entertaining thriller/adventure that come with a reality check.

    Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the 'Oregon' are hired by the head of an Eastern consortium of ocean shippers to end the piracy that is going on. What the crew encounters beyond the piracy is even more disturbing, human trafficking. There is a bit more character development is this novel that in the previous ones. Other than that, it was the usual Cussler good vs evil with a lot of shooting, violence and some suspense. Good wins out in the end.

    Dark Watch, one of the Oregon Files novels, is pretty much what you expect from the cover. Clive Cussler's books are a general type - adventure happens, horrible bad guys do horrible things, upstanding good guys (usually Juan Cabrillo and his crew) do good and risky things to stop them, a few capers are put on with interesting misdirection, and by the end of the book the bad guys have been put in their place and the righteous have prevailed, and usually, made a profit as well.

If you haven't read the books of the Oregon Files, they're about a ship full of good-guy secret agents who have retired from government service (usually American, but sometimes another allied country) and do freelance jobs for the government when there's something that needs to be done under the table, as it were. I'm not sure how much of these books are written by Clive Cussler and how much by Jack du Brul, but they read pretty similarly to when Mr. Cussler was writing them solo, and I recommend these to a fan of the old books who aren't sure of the collaborations he does. Honestly, why isn't there a GURPS Cussler, I don't know. :)

    I think I am starting to like the Oregon books better than the original Pitt ones. I could totally see their adventures becoming a tv series. It contains a very good cast of characters and real life stories that people could connect to.

    Third entry in the Oregon Files series. Juan Cabrillo and The Corporation are hired to fight pirates in the Pacific. After battling a pirate band, they get onto a deeper conspiracy. A conspiracy dealing with slavery and gold. The crew goes all over the world, and indulge in all sorts of derring-do. Of course, Cabrillo finds a beautiful woman. Entertaining with some very interesting settings.

This book is part of the Oregon series about a state of the art state which contains mercenaries with hearts of gold who do work for money but are the heroes of the story and are led by Juan Cabrillo. The ship is nuclear powered and almost like a warship disguised as a freight vessel. This story sees the North Koreans siding with the Syrians in capturing vessels in the far east and doing people trafficking from China to the west. Lots of vessels are being captured by pirates and plundered and their crews being massacred regardless whether they put up resistance or not. The Americans are worried if they wade in with military action they will get problems with terrorists not to mention anger the international community so they hire the Oregon. It does turn out many of the refugees are being murdered by the pirates and that this suits the traffickers just fine. I enjoyed this book and their is a happy ending. This book also does a good job of explaining some of the political problems in the far east. The refugees have to pay upwards of $30,000 to travel with these people traffickers which normally is paid off by the refugees working in places like sweat shops on favourable terms to the traffickers. If these people quietly disappear the family is enslaved and the traffickers have a win win situation. If these people just disappear the traffickers save a load of money that would normally go on travel, food and accommadation etc. This book was written in 2005 when there was also bad feeling in certain quarters about Saudi Arabia siding with America in the First Gulf War.There is a little bit about that in the story.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Borrowed from my dad. So not my thing. Made it through to the end, but didn't enjoy it at all. The biggest thing that bothered me is that the women were just window dressing or plot devices, and there were a few really terrible lines thrown in for good measure. One line about how in his younger CIA days, Juan slept with a Russian operative, not to get information from her because she was too low level for that, but because it made him feel like James Bond. Gross. And another line about how one of Borrowed from my dad. So not my thing. Made it through to the end, but didn't enjoy it at all.

But a girl with more piercings than a pincushion and who was impressed with a guy who could catch air on a skateboard half-pipe wasn't much of a catch..." So Juan doesn't think of women as real people and doesn't have much respect for one of his employees either because he skateboards. Let's not forget Tory, whose sole purpose in the book appears to be getting rescued at the beginning and be someone for Juan to sleep with at the end. But she's also apparently smart and capable because she used to be some sort of British intelligence operative, because we couldn't possibly have Juan stoop to hooking up with a lame Goth girl, could we? Not that Tory got to actually do anything cool in the story.

    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.

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.

    Dark Watch by Clive Cussler was not as interesting as his other works. This abridged audio book was the story of modern day pirates who take not only the cargo of a captured ship but they also�take the ship itself. Throw in some international slave traders and you have what seems like two books going at the same time with only minimal interactions. The book would have been better if it focused on one story and then developed it in greater detail. I am still a big fan of Cussler.

    If Dark Watch was only the first half of the book, it would have been an excellent beginning. It was like there was a deadline and the last chapter was a recap of the last half of the book. So, it needed to be finished. These superstars who lend their names to others who actually write the books with the approval of the primary author should make sure there is some quality control or at least a complete manuscript.

    Had you asked me, back in March, when I reintroduced myself to Cussler’s Oregon Files series, if I would ever find myself giving one of the books a 5 star rating, I would have shaken my head and answered with a resounding “No”. While the series had promise and Cussler’s choice to start a 3rd entire spin off series on a minor character from Dirk Pitts adventures could have been good, both Golden Buddha and Sacred Stone were huge disappointments and not even close to caliber of Cussler’s writing. O Had you asked me, back in March, when I reintroduced myself to Cussler’s Oregon Files series, if I would ever find myself giving one of the books a 5 star rating, I would have shaken my head and answered with a resounding “No”. While the series had promise and Cussler’s choice to start a 3rd entire spin off series on a minor character from Dirk Pitts adventures could have been good, both Golden Buddha and Sacred Stone were huge disappointments and not even close to caliber of Cussler’s writing. Obviously, looking back now, a big reason for that fell on Craig Dirgo’s shoulders. I don’t know that guy, and I have never had the opportunity to write with one of thriller genre’s most well known authors, but the signs were pretty clear that Dirgo’s weird, confusing style just didn’t gel with what Cussler originally planned. And all I can say is, thank God, because replacing Dirgo with the far more talented and much more succinct DuBrul, breathed new life into a series that had a huge chance of sinking before it even got going. I already write about Dubrul’s addition in Skeleton Coast (which does actually come after this one, chronologically), so I’ll just skip right to it and say that Dark Watch exceeded my expectations. Cussler’s novels have always been a mix of action and intrigue, but here, they are straight up Hollywood blockbuster kind of stores. DuBrul ups the ante on Juan Carrillo and team’s exploits and never once lets up. Dark Watch started with a bang and didn’t stop for a break a single time. Most authors in the action/thriller genre can get away with a dozen or so pages of adrenaline pumping scenes, however DuBrul multiples that by 3 or even 4 times, excelling at making moments last for countless pages and keeping the reader enthralled the entire time. Even better, the plot of Dark Watch actually makes sense and, even with a futuristic ocean liner filled with technology and state of the art weapons, is one of the most realistic of the entire span of Cussler’s career. From probably my least favorite Cussler series to the potential to be my favorite, Dark Watch is easily a top 5 Cussler novel and shows promise that this third spin off batch of books will go on to be something rivaling Dirk Pitt (and yes, I know, there are like 12 more in their series so it must be halfway decent to justify so many more).

    This is my fifth Oregon book, and my first by DuBrul.

Probably the most gritty of the "Cussler" novels. Except maybe the first couple Isaac Bell books. Oh, and also, DuBrul uses fewer cliffhanger chapter endings I think. Cussler and all the co-authors tend to always leave cliffhanger endings, but DuBrul didn't so much. So anyway, three stars, mainly for the writing. I'd read another DuBrul Oregon book, though the plot of this one didn't intrigue me much.

I promise I won't do this to all of his books, as he doesn't need my review to convince him that he's done things right for years and years.

In this book we get to meet the people who work with Cabrillo and sample a bit of the sleight of hand and downright disguises the crew of the Oregon uses to one-up the bad guys. Yet another wonderful romp through the high seas. If you like an entertaining book that doesn't require a lot of brain power, this is one of the the many Cussler has written. And frankly, I've loved them all.

    Clive Cussler writes too many books for my budget to handle. He is formulaic in his approach, much like many of my other favorite authors. I gave him up for quite a while. This book was a freeby and not one I remembered. Although it was written in 2005, the series is new to me. I must say that Cussler still brings the action! Juan Cabrillo and his band of semi-pirate spys was fun. Still pretty much Dirk Pitt wearing a new outfit!

    My 5th Cussler book and my 2nd Oregon Files so definitely know what to expect and this book didn't disappoint but was surprised by the distinct change in tone to a more darker, violent and gory style that works just about in the Oregon Files world. The Bond esque opening in Korea and excellent final battle are the highlights of the book for sure, the middle is a little meandering and loses focus (plus the Gold story is a little light in substance) but all in all still enjoyable.

    I absolutely loved this book. It's non-stop action with macho hero men who do exciting things to save people and property, namely ships. This is my first Cussler book and I love it. I'm going to read more. The descriptions of the conditions the poor Chinese slaves were working under was so real I could see it. It's hard to think there is more than likely people living in extreme conditions like that in this world at this time. I absolutely loved this book.
