    Typhoon Fury is book twelve in the Oregon Files series by Clive Cussler. Juan Cabrillo and his Corporation were hired by Dr Beth Anders to help her recover sixteen painting from a group led by Salvadore Locsin to finance their illegal agenda. However, during the early stages of their investigation, they stumbled on something more sinister and could have dangerous consequences for Asia. The readers of Typhoon Fury will go on a roller-coaster ride ...

    I have enjoyed the Oregon File Series by Cussler. This is book number twelve in the series. I noted Cussler has a different co-author, Boyd Morrison, for this book.Project Typhoon was a military name given to the drug developed by the Moral Division in World War II. Cabrillo and the Oregon crew are assigned the mission of finding the alleged hidden cache of the drug. Cussler provides a strong women character in this story. Beth Anders and her fem...

    Another exciting adventure for Juan Cabrillo and his intrepid crew of the super spy ship "Oregon"....this time contending with a vile communist terrorist group from the Philippines, South African mercenaries, and a scary powerful drug that makes PCP look wimpy by comparison.RANDOM STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS:--pp. 16-17: Continuity error; first SGT Kekoa is described as having a rifle, then suddenly it's a Thompson SMG.--p. 35:...

    Another great entry in the Oregon Files series.A communist terrorist from the Philippines has found a cache of leftover super soldier drugs from World War 2. He is dosing his men with them, turning them into bullet proof super villains. Juan has to stop them, and get some valuable art, all during a massive typhoon.A lot of fun!

    Another fun Cabrillo and the Oregon adventure with a not too unbelievable premise. Lots of action and really Bad guys.Despite all the great tools and technology, there are at least 3 places in the novel that a simple action would have solved problems and not employed. I do not understand this other than the literary license. Maybe I am getting less impressed over the years.Great weekend or travel light reading/listening!

    Typical, fast paced, high tech., good guys versus bad guys Cussler with co-author Boyd Morrison. A pretty good stretch of the imagination near the end, which I won't spoil for any reader.If you ever need a vacation from serious reading, grab Clive Cussler.

    Twelfth in The Oregon Files action/adventure thriller series and revolving around the Corporation, a covert team of specialists who sail the world in a tramp merchant ship.My TakeCussler/Morrison are setting us up at the start with four separate scenarios that merge, keeping us informed all the way with global third-person subjective point-of-view, so we know what most of the characters are thinking. Very useful as Cussler has the action a’popp...

    Boyd Morrison and Clive Cussler have written another thrilling adventure, featuring the always awesome Juan Cabrillo and the rest of the amazing Oregon crew. The bad guys are really really bad, the good guys are incredibly good, and the story races from page to page, daring you to stop at the end of each chapter (you won’t be able to). Great book!

    Thugs create super soldiers with super secret drugs. How original. This book is so idiotic it's laughable. It's also hard to believe Juan Cabrillo and the Oregon crew are a part of such tripe. Cusslers jointly written novels are getting worse with each iteration. Such a shame. I've been a long time fan.

    This has to be one of the very best Oregon File books. It is is fast moving and full of action. A must read and hard to put down.

    All the loose ends are well tied up at the end of Typhoon Fury. What a. wild tide this book is from beginning to end. I'd definitely recommend it.

The meeting is to be on a train and the plan is to capture the USP and Copy it and return it undetected. They then get tasked to track down a Communist gang leader who has plans to take over the Philippine islands with an army souped up with a cache of super steroid pills recovered from a WWII lab in the tu...

    I anxiously awaited this book, the 12th in the series, and I was expecting the usual comic book-like, very formulaic read. I stopped reading other of Clive Cussler ‘s novels, but I still got a kick out of the Oregon Files series. I have found the ‘corporation’ (mercenaries), its spy ship and crew (especially artificial legged – and in NO WAY disabled -– Chairman Juan Cabrillo), which always work for the ‘good guys’, (typically the C...

    Clive Cussler is the original master of the non-stop action thriller, and his co-authors enable him to juggle many series simultaneously. I've always enjoyed the Oregon Files series with Juan Cabrillo and his crew. Because Juan is essentially a mercenary, no excuse needs to be made for how he gets into particular situations; he does it for money. But he still has a conscience and a love for humanity, and this is what keeps his stories interesting...

    Starting in Vietnam, Juan and the crew are pulling off a dangerous mission in that they are trying to recover a flash drive with top secret information wanted by the Chinese. Instead of just recovering it, they want the Chinese to think they have got it back and the information didn't fall into other hands. Of course the Corporation is successful. Meanwhile their art dealer - art is a good investment - is tracking down some stolen masterpieces wh...

    Lately, I've been a bit disappointed by some of Clive Cussler's books, and I've been a fan since the 1970s. However, I have always enjoyed the Oregon series.One thing that really through me off from the dust jacket was the comment" "still shaken by the loss of a dear friend." This pissed me off because they are speaking of Mike Trono, a relatively minor character, if I recall correctly, in the series. However, my point is that if the crew was sha...

    My... fourth Oregon book, after Golden Buddha, Piranha, and The Emperor's Revenge. Have to put it 3rd, behind Emperor and Piranha, and ahead of Golden. All around, the book was lacking oomph. It was very gadget-heavy, and supposed to be action-driven, but I felt like I got to see so little of the Oregon and the crew. No characters stood out, the banter was on the light side (not light-hearted, but light, as in, little of it)... Or is that lite? A...

    #12 in The "Oregon" Files series (#3 with co-author Boyd Morrison). This 2017 series entry has the international adventure and excitement we expect from a Cussler series. The main part of the novel involves a group of Filipino communists exploiting a WWII era performance enhancing drug (and has a prologue from the 145 second battle of Corregidor) with a secondary story arc involving the artworks stolen from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museu...

    This book has almost every little bit of type of mission in it and lots of exciting, new battles and stunts. I love this series. The way the ship is organized, the team dynamics and being the good guys. It all just fits together in a uniquely entertaining way.This time, after completing a mission involving a computerized spy list and a gun battle on a moving train, Team Oregon head out to investigate some stolen art involving drug lords and find ...

    Review : Typhoon FuryA very good 'escape read' . It seems quite plausible that a "SUPERDRUG" was developed during World War 2 by the Japanese, in case of a invasion of Japan, that was covered up by the U.S. Cussler's novels are more enjoyable when the basis of the story is believable. This novel is from the "Oregon Files", personally I enjoy "Oregon Files" more than Cussler's other heroes except possibly Isaac Bell. The Oregon must prevent the su...

    Yet another co-authored book from Clive Cussler - this time an Oregon Files adventure featuring Juan Cabrillo and his crew. Next to the original Dirk Pitt, then Kurt Austin, the crew of the Oregon is probably my favorite Cussler cast of characters. This time around Cabrillo & Co. are battling communists in the Philippines for the secret to a mysterious drug that helps create super-soldiers and it's a load of fun seeing how they do it and what the...

    I was worried there for a few books that Boyd Morrison wouldn't be as good as Jack du Brul at writing the Oregon Files. Thankfully, Typhoon Fury exists to prove me wrong.Typhoon Fury displays the bombastic action, tense pacing, and interesting characters that we know and love of the Oregon Files. That's about all I can add to the description above. If you like the other Oregon File books, you'll love this one.My one nit-pick: if Cussler and Morri...

    It kind of felt like a mash-up between Marvel and Jason Bourne gone bad...super solders and drugs to make you strong and skilled. It was slow at the beginning and there were a lot of characters to keep track of at first but it picked up later in the book, one problem I had with it is the bad guy wouldn't freaking die. They tried killing him 4-5 times but he kept coming back...two helicopter crashes, few explosions and gunshot wounds. It gets a li...

    4-star rating for its entertainment value and well-written English without the foul language lesser authors feel they have to include to achieve realism (of the low-quality people they write about). The story concerns thr reappearance of a super steroid drug developed in WW II to give soldiers superior strength and healing abilities. The Communist bad guys are after the drug and formula as they want to conquer and take over the Phillipines and ev...

    There are two things a reader is always guaranteed when picking up an Oregon Files book...excitement and an excellent, and entertaining read. Typhoon Fury offers both of these elements in spades. The way Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon go after their mission is like a force of nature itself. The bad guys are numerous...sometimes almost too numerous...and at one point there are actually three factions vying for "Typhoon". Although at time...

    Although I have read and enjoyed many of Clive's novels in the past; over the last three years, the book that are co-authored appear to be getting worse and just do not catch the banter of the characters and lacks what appears to be preparation for the novel itself. Now do not get me wrong, I have been a fan of Cussler for many years; but these newer authors that are writing just do not seem to grasp the feelings of what was originally intended f...
