There are at least five different stories taking place, and none seem to have any relationship to the opening scenario, or to each other. Had any team members actually died, that would have led to some strong character growth as each surviving member of the crew would have had to process those losses.

Apparently, it was just intended to show the reader how bad the bad guys are without the situation being necessary for the plot. The plot revolves around two stolen missiles and one scientist's quest to improve the gene pool of humanity. Mike Maden adroitly takes over the reins in his second Oregon Files written under Clive Cusslers name. Maybe it would have been acceptable as a standard military action novel, but it does not carry on the enjoyable legacy of the prior Oregon Files novels. Hard to believe that this book flies under Clive Cussler's banner, and that it has such a high rating on Goodreads.When Juan Cabrillo, captain of the Oregon, is hired to extract an undercover operative in Kenya, he finds himself on the trail of a deadly international plot.

It is always hard to "develop" an existing character or team of characters in a series of books because they still have to remain true to their core identities so that the readers do not lose interest in them; in addition, there are so many different authors in the books that it can become difficult to keep track of true character development in prior novels. This is one of those novels where you are thrown into a character's situation for a chapter, and then you are thrown into another character's situation in the next chapter. When Cabrillo is hired to extract an undercover operative in Kenya, he finds himself on the trail of a deadly international plot. I thought the bad guys in this novel did exceptionally well against the Oregon crew even though they really knew nothing about them.As I said before in my previous book review, a LOVE BOAT is the last thing I want when reading this series. The Oregon is not only a vessel but is a main character, an extension of every great character on board. Maden has served as a political consultant and campaign manager in state and national elections, and hosted his own local weekly radio show. This story had the added pressure of trying to find a hypersonic missile which was stolen from India. Clive Cussler was the author of more than eighty books in five bestselling series, including Dirk Pitt®, NUMA Files®, Oregon Files®, Isaac Bell®, and Sam and Remi Fargo®.

It was sad to read about the damage done to the port as I can only assume numerous innocent civilians and military personnel going about their normal business were killed, but it was still a cool moment. And then you had the "mobile attack group" attacking a camp "filled" with these enhanced soldiers and the camp is easily taken out with zero casualties to the Oregon's team(s). Granted, the "super soldiers" plot kinda reminded me of Typhoon Fury except that the super soldiers in this story were altered using CRISPR technology as well as other alterations to their body based upon transhumanism, trying to shift certain groups of humans to "Humanity 2.A former British Royal Navy/Chief steward on The Oregon but I always knew there was more to Maurice than meets the eye. In this book, we get the intro chapter of the book to discover some of Maurice's earlier military history before he retired from the British Navy and joined Juan Cabrillo's crew. At the same time, it was interesting to read about how Juan and his team sought to use non-lethal methods to attack the secret training camp at the abandoned monastery; that was pretty cool and well-written, I thought.
