Description

While CRISPR has been in the news for a while, this was the first book I've read that uses it as part of the story. Another story line is our following of the lead doctor ventured into the jungle to locate a friend of hers to deliver pharmaceuticals to her project involving native people. Juan Cabrillo is doing a favor for the CIA by tracking down the brother of a formerly high ranking Israeli agent.

While the prior books focused on the ship, its crew and their clandestine operations, this one spends little time on the ship, little time developing the character of the crew, and was not engaging. When Cabrillo is hired to extract an undercover operative in Kenya, he finds himself on the trail of a deadly international plot. I enjoyed the blending of current technological levels with advanced theories and advanced levels of technology to extrapolate how things might turn out if such technology was more prevalent today. There are at least five different stories taking place, and none seem to have any relationship to the opening scenario, or to each other.I am glad I started reading this series as it has been a lot of fun to read and I do feel fairly invested in this series of books (maybe not quite like the Dirk Pitt books, but still invested enough). I think I had looked up a C-130 landing and taking off of an aircraft carrier before, because that was mentioned in this book, too, and I was, "Bunk!

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®. I would recommend reading any one of the dozen novels in the Oregon Files series before Fire Strike. That would have been pretty crazy, to be on an aircraft carrier and watching a C-130 coming in to not only land but take off multiple times with its payload being increased for the next time it landed.

Langston Overholt, their CIA contact asked for an off the books favor to find an old colleagues brother that leads the gang into all sorts of trouble.
