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.
