The crew are in the wild Philippines and a secret threatens to end the world, in the new rip-roaring Oregon Files novel, from THE Adventure King himself, 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.
Bestseller Cussler's fast-paced 12th Oregon Files novel (after 2016's The Emperor's Revenge, also coauthored with Morrison) opens in the midst of the second battle of Corregidor in 1945. During a U.S. attack on one of the mountainous island's many caves, Capt. John Hayward, who's searching for a secret Japanese laboratory, observes that the enemy soldiers who pour out of the cave's tunnels are furious fighters who don't drop even when grievously wounded by gunfire. After finding the secret lab, Hayward succeeds in grabbing a file marked Project Typhoon just before the place blows up. In the present, Juan Cabrillo, the captain of the intelligence ship Oregon, is involved in a mission whose object is to find a memory stick containing the names of all Chinese secret agents operating in the U.S. No surprise, Juan's present-day operation connects to the secret project on Corregidor, and soon he and his crew are fighting to recover thousands of doses of a potent compound that turns men into supersoldiers. Expertly drawn characters and a well-constructed plot make this one of Cussler's better efforts.

I must be jaded but this book made me realise the series is a formula and everything was predictable. Too much same, same with the last few in the series. Don't think I'll buy any more.
