As usual Clive Cussler serves up another fun well paced action packed thrill ride. The Fargo's for me have always seemed more of a link from Young Adult to the adult books, even with that comparison this book is a great fun book, Clive always has easy to read characters, and outrageous plots that take you well away from reality, and that's the beauty of these books, something that perfect for reading by the pool to remove you from the hum drum of life. Those who try to nit pick because the book is simplistic in its formula need to remember its supposed to be a fun read not an in-depth historical account. Cussler has always been the master at these books. My concern is the constant stream of ghost writers, Its clear from the style that Clive still has some serious input because the formula is there. But the wow factor seems to be leaking away from the story / Plot. So this was fun but for the future more Clive less ghost for me.
Description Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site. What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine. The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder . . . a bounty that has never been found. As they follow the trail through Hungary, Italy, France, Russia, and Kazakhstan--a trail that they discover leads them not to one tomb, but five--the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of amateur treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself . . . and will stop at nothing to claim the tombs' riches as his own.
