Typhoon Fury is book twelve in the Oregon Files series by Clive Cussler.

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 with Juan Cabrillo and his teams to find the missi ...more

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 female bodyguard, Raven, have infiltrated

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.

--pp. 16-17: Continuity error; first SGT Kekoa is described as having a rifle, then suddenly it's a Thompson SMG.

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!

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 Take
Cussler/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’popping all over…and all over the world!

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!

This series never disappoints. I love how the different plot lines come together in this book. Well written bad guys and exciting action scenes. Funny, for a series about a super ship and its crew of most of this action takes place on land.

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.

A powerful drug left over from the Second World War, but lost, supposedly, because of enemy action, becomes the centre of interest for Juan cabrillo and his adversaries. Most of the action takes place in the Far East, and there is plenty of it. Throw in some long lost stolen paintings and an impetuous lady art historian and you have all the makings for disaster as well as excitement.
As usual Cabrillo does not disappoint - just what else can be hidden in a prosthetic leg? Boyd Morrison may

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.

Love this series. The technology that the Oregon carries never fails to amaze and the highly capable crew is up to any challenge or catastrophe presented to them. It's constant action from start to finish so be prepared.
Dee Haddrill
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!

Action movie, WWII, a super-soldier drug, art heist, and a hurricane (well, typhoon, I see what they did there...). If you want all of these things in one place, this is great.

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.

This book from the Oregon files, takes place round the Philippines as a vicious leader is using some high profile paintings to seek to finance his attacks. There is also a deadly secret about some drugs that create an army of super-warriors, supposedly used during World War 2. The Oregon team do all they can to stop Asia going to war, another very decent story and worth having a read.

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.

As is standard for all of Cussler's b

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 CIA) to be charming in the mold of James Bond (with even the corn ...more

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 when she gets into a very difficult situation. With ...more

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 shaken by the loss, why is Trono only men

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? Anyway, I think, re-imagined, it could've made a de

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.
