Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must track down a nuclear torpedo before it unleashes World War III in this electrifying installment of the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

    When Juan Cabrillo fails to capture the leader of Mexico’s most dangerous drug cartel and loses an Oregon crew member in the process, he’s determined to get revenge. Little does he know that the explosion he just narrowly escaped was merely the latest flash of violence from a machine of war that has existed for decades, dating from the bloodiest episode in Armenia’s history.

    Cabrillo’s Corporation of mercenaries may have finally met its match in The Pipeline—a criminal syndicate passed down from father to son across generations. A group that sits with its finger on the trigger of a torpedo so deadly it could level entire cities. With millions of innocent civilians hanging in the balance, the Oregon’s crew must unravel a tangle of drug-smuggling routes and international conspiracies spanning from the Aegean Sea to the Indian Ocean, putting their lives on the line to find the weapon before its countdown hits zero.

Hellburner is another exciting episode of The Oregon Files following in Mr. Cussler’s adventurous ways by Mike Maden. The story and characters were compelling and interesting. Juan Cabrillo leads his crew through the Mediterranean to the Mexican peninsula then to Turkey in this action packed thriller. Make sure to put this on your summer reading list.

The Oregon series is my favorite of Cusslers books. I was happy to see a new book. Hellburner stays faithful to its origins, imho. Its fast paced and keeps you reading. My thanks to Mike Maden for sharing his talent and NetGallery for the ARC

First I received the ARC, with the agreement to read it and give a fair review! I can honestly say I was excited to read a book in my favorite series and I loved all the action, twists and turns through out the book. It was an excellent read, great story line and stayed true to the series!

#16 in Clive Cussler's Oregon Files series, written by Mike Maden, and I can say with all honesty, he did justice to this book! Fast paced action starting with taking down the head of the a major Drug Lord in Mexico. The attempt goes badly and one of the Oregon's crew is killed!

Overholt contacts Juan to go after a group called "Pipeline" The Pipeline is behind Drugs, Human trafficking and Weapons. Edge of your seat fast paced action and adventure including a member of the Oregon's crew getting badly injured and possibly not able to come back from that injury! Juan and the crew continue to do what they do best under tough odds.

I look forward to being able to recommend this when it hits the shelves!

Mike Maden takes over writing the Oregon Files in this 16th installment of the long running series and succeeds wonderfully with probably the most bonkers Cusslerverse book in a long-while. Cussler books can often fill like you've read the same one multiple times and they work best when you feel that they've landed on something novel. Mike Maden has done this with Hellburner.

This book has everything you could want from an Oregon Files book; It has new gadgets on the Oregon, it has interesting new villains, and a threat that could cause devastation on unimaginable scales. However, it also has the crew of the Oregon being their heroic selves led by the wonderful Juan Cabrillo. Boyd Morrison wrote some of my favorite Cusslerverse books and quickly became my favorite writer of the bunch and I think Mike Maden has filled those big shoes well. The plot of this book is done deftly and even though it's one of the most over-the-top stories of recent Cusslerverse books, Maden handles it well and brings it to a thrilling conclusion.

The Oregon Files are in good hands with Mike Maden and I look forward to his next installment of the series.
