Jungle : a novel from the Oregon files
Author(s): Clive Cussler & Jack Du Brul
Jungles come in many forms: there are the steamy rainforests of the Burmese highlands; then there are the lies, deceit, and betrayal of the world of covert operations; and there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all. A devastating new weapon unleashed in thirteenth-century China . . . a daring rescue mission in the snowbound mountains along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border . . . a woman gone missing in the jungles of Northern Thailand and Myanmar . . . For Juan Cabrillo, intrepid captain of the state-of-the-art fighting ship Oregon, all of them will come together – and lead to the greatest threat against US security that the world has ever known.
