I truly enjoyed this book.
The story is so far fetched that it's almost impossible to believe. But, so what!!!
That's what makes it special and fun.
The narration is excellent and I cannot possibly believe that reading the book can be anywhere as engaging.
I enjoyed and recommend it.

Spoiler alert!!!!! Please Sam Fargo, just kill the bad guy!!! This guy has 9 lives and just keeps coming back!!! It's really not suspenseful as much as "Sam, you are really stupid for not killing the guy the last time you had the opportunity!" Good story other than the the bad guy storyline.
I enjoy the Fargo books with the bantering that goes on between the two. Not a lot to say because the story is so typical Cussler. I can't read them in succession but I enjoy them sprinkled in once in a while.
The Fargors luck should have run out
Interesting history but slow going better as a book than audio
The author is showing his age especially in this one. Characters' dialog and descriptions sound like that of an 85 year old man trying to sound like a 40 year old modern adventurer. Sorry Clive, it falls flat. The author just doesn't have the chops to pull it off. Too many forced "modern" expressions and references makes for an affected sound for the main characters and thus, not that enjoyable/believable.
An unashamed Audiophile who has his own studio and business called iZENEARS which brings Australian travel and history to life for locals and visitor's alike.
Detail, Cussler's new-found religion, is pretty complicated in this the second in the series. You need to follow his thinking on Google Earth to get the full appreciation of the story and I am not sure that in the end it all connects, it sort of runs out of puff. The thing I hated was the cribbed word for word overview repeat of the background of the heroes from book 1; that is lazy writing and Mr C is better than that. Not sure if I will invest in number 3.
Always good yarns and weaving lots of historical happenings in with current events, but Cussler's books can lack a human or relational element. So much going on, there's really no time for relationship or character building. Hence, my remark that these books would most likely interest more men than women. All action.
