I love a good action thriller and have read Clive Cussler books before. I have never read one of this Oregon Files novels before and this is his 12th one. Juan Cabrillo and crew are back and up against Filipino terrorist group that found a super steroid type pill that makes them almost invincible. And now they aim to make more of it and eventually take over the world.
This pill was first developed during WWII and then feared lost. Now Locsin is leading a group to over throw the Filipino government, selling Meth and developing this pill. Only problem is they are missing the key ingredient and only have a certain amount at the moment. They also have stolen paintings worth millions of dollars in their possession. Paintings that Beth and Raven want.
The Oregon lead by Juan, find themselves involved in the search for the paintings, which leads them to going after Locsin (the leader of the group) when they find out about the pills. There’s also a rogue organization after the pills. So three different forces are on a collision course. Juan and his crew are a smart, small force that think three steps ahead. Armed with the right information they embark on dangerous mission after mission against these men that are on the steroid pills, in an attempt to stop the next next world war.
I really enjoyed these characters, the story and how bad ass the crew of the Oregon is. I have no idea why I haven’t read any of the previous books in the series. It’s what I like to call a page-turner. I couldn’t put the book down until I finished it.
You can pick up Typhoon Fury, written by Clive Cussler and Boyd Morrison, in stores on Tuesday, November 7, from Putnam.
