Corsair by Clive Cussler 2009: One-legged Juan Cabrillo captains the Oregon, a sophisticated and fortified ship disguised as a derelict five-hundred and sixty foot freighter. As always, Cussler’s novels are based on events that happened hundreds of years earlier. Cabrillo is asked to unofficially hunt for the downed Secretary of State whose plane crashes on the way to an important peace conference in the Middle East. The roller-coaster adventures of the Oregon and its crew make the excitement of a James Bond seem dull in contrast.
Can Cabrillo and his crew find the Secretary and save the Peace conference? Read on as the historical past does indeed affect the present.
