The Jungle Paperback
Part of the The Oregon Files series
Juan Cabrillo faces a global deadly threat in Clive Cussler's The Jungle. Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon are up against their smartest foe yet - but in their midst there is a traitor ...After losing their contract with the US government because of a daring raid too far, Cabrillo and his crew of mercenaries with a conscience are earning money the hard way: doing dirty, dangerous little jobs in the world's trouble spots.
Now they've accepted a mission deep to find a missing adventurer deep in the jungles of Myanmar.
But it is not long before Cabrillo and his team realise that they have been set up. Cabrillo - betrayed, tortured and played for a fool - is angry that he's been used as a pawn in someone's deadly scheme.
But with the US nuclear launch codes up for grabs and a madman bent on using them to hold millions of lives to ransom, he hasn't time to worry about revenge.
He's got to save the world first ...The number-one bestseller Clive Cussler, author of the thrilling Dirk Pitt novels Treasure of Khan and Trojan Odyssey, and co-author Jack Du Brul tell a gripping story of adventure, treachery and betrayal in the eighth Oregon Files novel. The Jungle is preceded by Corsair and The Silent Sea. Praise for Clive Cussler: 'Frightening and full of suspense ...unquestionably entertaining' Daily Express 'All-action, narrow escapes and the kind of unrelenting plot tension that has won Cussler hundreds of millions of fans worldwide' Observer

Review by Alaric.Adair
I used to enjoy Clive Cussler books when he used to write them. The Jungle shows some traces of the Cussler writing method, but shows some annoying lapses in the writers' understanding of technology.The book reads like a bag of good ideas poorly connected by a committee planned storyline.
