Quantum. The latest installment in the Oregon Files brand of Clive Cussler novels is titled, The Jungle. Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon zip around the globe as they take on assignments to rescue missing or kidnapped children. The title refers to the Burmese rainforest where they are following the trail of a billionaire’s daughter who has gone missing. They become entangled in multiple deceptions and a plot to destroy Western civilization through the use of a quantum computer. This escapist novel may entertain readers looking for a quick and entertaining read, but both heroes and villains are so weakly developed that the result can be less than satisfying.
Rating: Two-star (Mildly Recommended)
