Description

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon sail into a perfect storm of danger to try to stop a new world war, in a thrilling suspense novel from the number one New York Times best-selling grand master of adventure.

Hired to search for a collection of paintings worth half a billion dollars, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon soon find themselves in much deeper waters. Not only is the vicious leader of a Filipino insurgency using them to finance his attacks, but he has stumbled upon one of the most lethal secrets of World War II - a Japanese-developed drug, designed, but never used, to turn soldiers into superwarriors. To stop him, the Oregon must take on not only the rebel commander but a South African mercenary intent on getting his own hands on the drug, a massive swarm of torpedo drones targeting the US Navy, an approaching megastorm - and, just possibly, a war that could envelop the entire Asian continent.

Best one yet...Loved it!

Loved Boyd's Jeopardy Easter Egg. Like the new crew member...interesting. I was really sweating The Oregon would be gone...on the edge of my seat, my heart sank, and then...LOL you guys are. just going to have to read the book to see what happened. Each time I say how can the next one be better and then it is the best one yet. I had to remind myself to breathe from time to time.

A Rousing Tale

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 Udom and his group who are also after the drug. Anders is kidnapped. Cabrillo and crew to the rescue.

The book is well written and is jam-packed with action. As with all of Cussler’s stories, there is a historical perspective. Most of the story is set in Asia which adds more excitement to the story. The characters are well developed and the plot twists and turns. This is a good “get away from it all” book.

The book is just over twelve hours. Scott Brick does an excellent job narrating the story. Brick has narrated the entire series. Brick is as actor and a multi-award-winning audiobook narrator. He was a 2017 inductee to the Audible Narrator Hall of Fame.

Not one of the best

I love the Oregon Files books, but this one not so much. I found the story boring and a little too far fetched. It almost felt like I was listening to a Marvel Comics book. Scott Brick is great, as usual, but the story wasn't very appealing to me. Maybe Clive Cussler is grasping at straws to come up with a new adventure?

This one’s really good!

Somewhat different too...in a good way! Not as much history but as usual a good story line from a tidbit of unknown or obscure history

Would like to see this one as a movie!

Although most movies don't do justice to the book origin, I would love to see a good Director's attempt at bringing Juan Cabrio's "Corporation", complete with the Oregon to the silver screen. The foe offers plenty of suspense and technology as well. And as always, Scott Brick brings it all to life as few can.

Couldn’t Finish Listening

I think the storyline was very good. However, I could not listen to the entire book. I just could not continue to listen to the monotone , slow performance. He dragged out every word . It ruined the book for me. It’s really a shame, because as I said, the storyline was very good .

One of the better stories

A fum book to listen to, some tidbits to learn, after hearing many books from Clive Cussler you get a feeling for the story and they follow a pattern, still enjoyable and worth the time.

classic Cussler.

while I like all of the Cussler characters, the Oregon Files are my favorites. And this does not disappoint.
