The Jungle product reviews

Jungles come in many forms: there are the steamy rainforests of the Burmese highlands; then there are the lies, deceit, and betrayal of the world of covert operations; and there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination.

To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

A devastating new weapon unleashed in thirteenth-century China... a daring rescue mission in the snowbound mountains along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border... a woman gone missing in the jungles of Northern Thailand and Myanmar... For Juan Cabrillo, intrepid captain of the state-of-the-art fighting ship Oregon, all of them will come together - and lead to the greatest threat against US security that the world has ever known.

This is another gripping story from two masters of the Genre. Unfortunately it wasn't their best efforts, in my opinion.

The story was gripping for the most part, but seemed to lead off from what I felt would have been a stunning plotline, and into a quantum optical computer - it was awfully tricky to point the way to a super-laser at the start, and then have that pan out into something completely different, but as a reader I felt cheated by it.

The ending was perhaps the most confusing element for me, in that the premise didn't hold true... exactly how, I can't say without giving away the plot... but it felt very reminiscent of "The Lawnmower Man" to me... and though I loved that movie to bits, the concept didn't migrate to this plot very well.

On the plus side, we see more great characters appearing, one of which joins the team, if under a bit of a dark cloud, and some genuine nasties with no hesitation to be just that - Nasty.

Overall, still a great read, if somewhat stilted and disconnected in places... some great plot twists and character diversions, with plenty of 'red herrings' thrown in for flavour. Worth considering? Certainly...
