Typhoon Fury opening line: The tunnel exploded.
How would the world look if the Japanese had managed to get hold of a super steroid drug? One that could ensure the survival of most of their army? A drug that helps heal people quicker than anything else imaginable. Well, if that tunnel had not exploded we might have found out. But, the explosion did not destroy this drug and now it is the hands of a man who wants to be a supreme leader. And to do so he will go to any lengths. What he did not plan for was the team from The Oregon. Can they stop him in time?
The new rip-roaring Oregon Files adventure from the grand master of adventure, Clive Cussler. Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon are about to sail into a perfect storm of danger. Their mission? To stop a new world war . . .Hired to search for a collection of paintings worth half a billion dollars, Juan Cabrillo soon finds himself in much deeper waters when he discovers the vicious leader of a Filipino insurgency is using the paintings they seek to finance his attacks. Far worse, Salvadore Locsin has stumbled upon a deadly secret of World War II: a serum designed to create an army of super-warriors.With Locsin’s plan threatening to engulf Asia in war, Oregon’s crew must take on the rebel commander, a South African mercenary intent on taking the drug for himself, a swarm of torpedo drones targeting the US Navy, and a gathering megastorm.For Juan and his elite team, failure is not an option. An apocalyptic world war is on the horizon, and only they can stand in its way. Typhoon Fury is a masterful suspense novel, full of the adventure, break-neck pace and danger that make Clive Cussler an unbeatable storyteller.
Another great novel in the Oregon Files series. Fast paced and full of action. The perfect read in my opinion. Don’t worry if you have not read any of the previous novels. Even though they carry on from one another, they don’t hinge on what has happened previously.
