Corsair

Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul: Corsair (UK 2010)

From the Publisher:
Off the coast of Somalia a battered, old freighter is boarded by pirates whose sights are set on a hefty ransom...
But these pirates have made a mistake. For this rusting freighter is none other than Juan Cabrillo's secretive, state-of-the-art fighting ship Oregon. And Cabrillo is about to turn the tables on a deadly Somali pirate captain.

One spectacular battle later and Cabrillo finds himself embroiled in an even tougher assignment. The US Secretary of State's plane has crashed on its way to a summit in Libya - and she is missing. Cabrillo is the only one who can find her. But his search quickly involves a lost ancient jewel and a murderous plot by terrorists intent on plunging the world into chaos...

Corsair

Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul: Corsair (USA 2010)

From the Publisher:
For five novels, Clive Cussler has brought readers into the world of the Oregon, a seemingly dilapidated ship packed with sophisticated equipment, and captained by the rakish, one-legged Juan Cabrillo. And now the Oregon and its crew face their biggest challenge yet.

Corsairs are pirates, and pirates come in many different varieties. There are the pirates who fought off the Barbary Coast in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the contemporary pirates who infest the waters of Africa and Asia, and the pirates... who look like something else.

When the U.S. secretary of state's plane crashes while bringing her to a summit meeting in Libya, the CIA, distrusting the Libyans, hire Juan Cabrillo to search for her, and their misgivings are well founded. The crew locates the plane, but the secretary of state has vanished. It turns out Libya's new foreign minister has other plans for the conference, plans that Cabrillo cannot let happen. But what does it all have to do with a two- hundred- year-old naval battle and the centuries-old Islamic scrolls that the Libyans seem so determined to find? The answers will lead him full circle into history, and into another pitched battle on the sea, this time against Islamic terrorists, and with the fate of nations resting on its outcome.

"Readers will burn up the pages following the blazing action and daring exploits of these men and women and their amazing machines," writes Publishers Weekly of the Oregon Files series. And they'll do it once again, with Corsair.
