- Description<b>Ex-CIA ship captain Juan Cabrillo leads the crew of the <i>Oregon </i>on a quest to save a kidnapped politician in this adventure in the #1<i> New York Times</i>-bestselling series.</b> 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 cant 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 ather pitched battle on the sea, this time against Islamic terrorists, and with the fate of nations resting on its outcome.
