Nearly two thousand years ago, an Eastern emperor charged a small group with safeguarding a body of knowledge and secrets powerful enough to change the history of mankind. They went down in legend as the Nine Unknown Men--and now two rival factions of the descendants are fighting a mighty battle. Both sides think they are saving the world, but one of them is willing to use horrifying means to accomplish its goals. Now is up to Cabrillo and his team of expert operatives to stop both of them from the destructive path they're on, and save the earth from a dynasty of terror.

If you like Cussler's other books, you will like this one, too. Beginning with an ancient legend and a mysterious cabal, Cussler fast forwards to the present day where the descendants of the original cabal are planning a world takeover. Well, two separate world takeovers, to be accurate. The multu-skilled crew of the Oregon step in with a larger than usual high tech armory and manage to foil both plans in heroic fashion, while preserving their crew, saving dozens of innocent lives and discovering a vast compendium of ancient knowledge.

I read this to kill time while waiting for " on hold books". I've read better.

SHADOW TYRANTS is the usual, entertaining, fun & fast read from Clive Cussler (with Boyd Morrison, in this case). Has the usual interesting ancient history lead in to set the stage. There is a lot more modern technology focus to this one than usual. And, it has several groups of bad guys wanting to take over the world with their own vision. Juan Cabrillo and his guys actually wind up playing a "who are these guys?" kind of role in the midst of the bad guys having their own civil war. One thing . I either missed completely or wasn't there was the Clive Cussler cameo appearance. What's up with that??? Enjoy.
