Mirage

Clive Cussler with Jack Du Brul. Putnam, $28.95 (416p) ISBN 978-0-399-15808-7
In this rousing ninth Oregon Files adventure (after 2011’s The Jungle) from bestseller Cussler and Du Brul, series hero Juan Cabrillo’s attempt to rescue old pal Yuri Borodin from a super-max Siberian prison goes bad. Yuri dies after uttering “Tesla,” a reference to Nikola Tesla, the mysterious Serb who invented alternating-current electricity and who is alleged to have developed a number of secret weapons, including a death ray, an earthquake machine, and an invisibility field. Russian fleet admiral Pytor Kenin, “perhaps the second-most corrupt man on the planet,” has formed a private army and is using Tesla’s secret technology for nefarious purposes. A subplot involves an effort to secure a legendary shipping container with a billion dollars leftover from the second invasion of Iraq, but soon everyone is back to the main mission—trying to thwart Kenin. The conclusion is the usual Cussler nail-biter, though no one ever really expects Juan and his crew to come in second-best. Agent: Peter Lampack, Peter Lampack Agency. (Nov.)
