Juan Cabrillo and his crew aboard the Oregon take on modern-day pirates for a surprising new client in this novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
Cabrillo and his motley crew aboard the clandestine spy ship Oregon have made a very comfortable and very dangerous living working for high-powered Western interests. But their newest clients have come from the Far East to ask for Cabrillo's special brand of assistance: a consortium of Japanese shipping magnates whose fortunes are being threatened by brutal pirates trolling the waters of Southeast Asia.
Normally, such attacks on the high seas are limited to smaller ships and foreign-owned yachts-easy targets on the open ocean. Now, however, giant commercial freighters are disappearing. But when Cabrillo confronts the enemy, he learns that the pirates' predations hide a deadly international conspiracy-a scheme of death and slavery that Juan Cabrillo is going to blow out of the water.

"Scott Brick narrates this sixth episode in the Covert One series, involving pirates, immigrants turned into slaves, and a bizarre gold bullion scheme. Brick's depictions of Juan Cabrillo and his shipboard crew are diverse and easy to follow. His volume and pitch match the ever increasing tension as Cabrillo, hired by foreign interests to learn why top Russian specialists are dying, passes the information to the U.S. instead. Using broken accents, he skillfully portrays immigrants as they "ride the snake" to America, but meet death or slavery instead. When pirates board the OREGON, Brick dramatizes the action in a tense staccato that soon changes to resolute victory. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
