Typhoon Fury (The Oregon Files) - Clive Cussler,Boyd Morrison

Typhoon fury by Clive Cussler and Boyd Morrison
Starts out in 1945, Philippines island and they must invade the fortress and gain entrance before others do... With the help of Japanese captain they realize Hiroshima could be the next target.
Present day in Vietnam-they take the one with the knowledge of the memory stick with them so he can't notify his buddies.
Back in Phillipines and the order to go full power through the storm...but escort ships have fired on them, killing some.
Like hearing of the chip not detectable by wands implanted into the thigh and of the memory flash that could erase itself if tampered with.
Love hearing of the enhancements to the Oregon=so high tech.
Amazing how all the different stories all lead into one...
So much action, adventure, mystery and war things in one. Would read more from this author as everything is so well described.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

Raise the Titanic! - Clive Cussler

Raise the Titanic! by Clive Cussler
Book starts out in 1900's and it's the night of the sinking Titanic where a man aboard knows the ship hit the iceberg and will sink as he goes to where he's stored the element that was mined that will be needed for future war projects.
Story follows a lot of different groups: one who finds the horn-the horn that was played on the Titantic, Sicilian project, money paid to survivors from miners who died in the past, other private groups that are funded from the government, the President who pursuades others to do things they don't really want to do and a lot more in different countries.
There is so much action and adventure, never mind the mystery surrounding it all. Bit of romance and you have a well rounded book for everybody.
Byzantium is the special mineral that everybody wants a piece of. two month submersible that can stay under water for more than 2 months time might just be the answer they need to get the minerals.
Thing that amazes me is that this book was written before they even located the Titanic so this is quite the story about it all.
Just when things are on an even keel a hurricane is in the area...

Treasure
Treasure - Clive Cussler Pretty indistinguishable from any other Dirk Pitt novel.
Moves at a good pace, with a decent set of villains, and some tense moments.
Good book to read when you just want to switch off for a bit and relax with a good adventure story.

White Death
White Death - Clive Cussler,Paul Kemprecos Dirk Pitt Kurt Austin and his best friend Al Giordino Joe Zavala get involved with an anti-whaling group and a mad scientist in this piece of fan fiction which Cussler probably only put his name to in order to pick up some royalties.

Austin has the same quirky collection thing going on (old duelling pistols instead of cars), the same animal magnetism to any female in his vicinity, the same derring-do...basically, he's Dirk Pitt under another name.

The story in itself isn't bad (but predictable), the peripheral NUMA characters are all ones from previous Pitt novels, rahter than trying to introduce a whole new cast.

The Chase (An Isaac Bell Adventure) - Clive Cussler

This was a good mystery with a cowboy type hero although he had no horse. He drove a fast car. I really enjoyed all of the historical details that were woven in with the story. This story has a western feel and is captivating even without cursing and graphic scenes. Once I got half way through the book there was no putting it down until the end. The "chase" scene made you feel like you were on board.
