Mirage: Oregon Files 9


Formats & editions


In World War Two a secret US military experiment caused a warship to vanish at sea - but has the tech now fallen into the wrong hands?

In October 1943 a US destroyer vanished out of Philadelphia, the result of a Navy experiment with electromagnetic radiation. The story was considered a hoax - but Juan Cabrillo and his Oregon colleagues aren't convinced.
Now, a new weapon is for sale - one linked to the great inventor Nikola Tesla, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the experiment? Are his notes in the hands of enemies? As Cabrillo races to unearth the truth, he discovers that the stakes are dangerously high - but it may already be too late...
%%%Mirage is the new heart-in-the-mouth adventure thriller in the Oregon Files from Clive Cussler.



October 1943. A US Navy warship vanishes at sea off the coast of Philadelphia. Its disappearance was rumoured to have been a result of a classified military experiment into the effects of electromagnetic radiation. The story has long since been considered a hoax.



But Juan Cabrillo and his colleagues aboard the top-secret spy ship Oregon aren't convinced.



Now, a powerful new weapon is for sale - one linked to genius inventor Nikola Telsa, who was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Was he responsible for the original Philadelphia experiment? Are his notes in the hands of his enemies?



As Cabrillo and his crew race to unearth the truth they discover that stakes are dangerously high. And it may already be too late . . .



Offering an irresistible combination of breakneck pace and audacious plotting that Clive Cussler has made his own, Mirage is state-of-the-art action-adventure. The ninth title in the Oregon Files series, it is preceded by The Jungle and The Silent Sea.
