Final Option

'The best one yet'




The new rip-roaring Oregon Files adventure from the grand master of adventure, Clive Cussler

When a routine mission is compromised, Captain Juan Cabrillo learns of a sinister plot. Off the Brazilian coast is another one-legged captain, with a ship just like the Oregon: same weaponry, same technology, same ability to evade capture.

And when this wolf in sheep's clothing begins sinking innocent vessels, the truth becomes clear: Someone is out to frame Cabrillo and his crew.

Not only is this impersonator as cunning as Cabrillo - his ship is also every bit as dangerous. Who is this nemesis from Cabrillo's past and just what do they want?

To find answers will require terrible sacrifices from Cabrillo, his crew and even the Oregon itself . . .

About the authors

Clive Cussler

Date: 2002-10-18
Clive Cussler is the author of over twenty-five internationally bestselling books, including the Dirk Pitt adventure series, the NUMA Files novels and the Oregon Files Adventures.

He grew up in Alhambra, California. He later attended Pasadena City College for two years, but then enlisted in the Air Force during the Korean War where he served as an aircraft mechanic and flight engineer in the Military Air Transport Service. Upon his discharge, he became a copywriter and later creative director for two leading ad agencies. At that time, he wrote and produced radio and television commercials that won numerous international awards, one at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

Cussler began writing in 1965 and published his first novel featuring Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first non-fiction work, The Sea Hunters, was released in 1996. Because of this work the Board of Governors of the Maritime College, State University of New York considered The Sea Hunters in lieu of a Ph.D. thesis and awarded Cussler a Doctor of Letters degree in May of 1997. It was the first time since the College was founded in 1874 that such a degree was bestowed.

Cussler is the founder the National Underwater & Marine Agency, (NUMA), a non-profit organisation that dedicates itself to American maritime and naval history. In addition to being Chairman of NUMA, Cussler is a fellow in both the Explorers Club of New York and the Royal Geographic Society in London.

A noted collector of classic automobiles, Cussler owns 85 of the finest examples of custom coachwork and 50's convertibles to be found anywhere. They are garaged near Golden, Colorado. Today, Cussler divides his time between the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Arizona.

Praise for Final Option

An all-out nonstop action thriller. The best one yet. The story hits the gas pedal and never taps the brakes. Having an enemy that is essentially a mirror image of the hero adds extra suspense and mayhem. The characters truly seem in jeopardy, and nothing will ever be the same
