About the Author

Clive Cussler is the author of more than fifty books in five bestselling series, including Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Fargo. His life nearly parallels that of his hero Dirk Pitt. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he and his NUMA crew of volunteers have discovered more than seventy-five lost ships of historic significance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley, which was raised in 2000 with much press publicity. Like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features more than eighty examples of custom coachwork. Cussler lives in Arizona and Colorado. Craig Dirgo has been special projects manager on many NUMA expeditions since 1987 and now serves as a trustee. He is the coauthor of The Sea Hunters and The Sea Hunters II.

Reviews

Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo is a lightweight, and so is his first story from Cussler. His ship, the deceptively derelict Oregon, may hold a bonanza down in its hold, but the tale lacks the wild excitement we've come to expect from Dirk Pitt's creator. This is a ho-hum account of a Golden Buddha that is supposed to hold the secret to mysterious gold fields and how Juan and his band of spy guys must somehow persuade China to release its control over Tibet and let the Dalai Lama return. One chapter of a Dirk Pitt novel has more action in it than this whole book. Reader J. Charles doesn't help at all; even though his pronunciation of Chinese and Tibetan words is admirable, he does a lousy Texas accent and an even worse British one. This may be the first of the "Oregon Files," but Dirk Pitt fans everywhere will fervently hope that this is just a temporary detour. Not recommended.-Joseph L. Carlson, Allan Hancock Coll., Lompoc, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

"Readers will burn up the pages following the blazing action and daring exploits of these men and women and their amazing machines."
--Publishers Weekly"Fans of Cussler will not be disappointed."
--Library Journal
