    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, the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of treasure hunters.

    Would you listen to The Tombs again? Why?

    in the future , sure, worth hearing again


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes , moved along, and I could always depend on C.C. to bail them out when all looks nearly hopeless


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    one of the very best of the best, we are one of Scott Bricks fans, he seem to be getting better and better,( a cast of hundreds)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    for sure if I could, my wife and I would stay in the car to listen for the end of the chapter


    Any additional comments?

    buy it , Cussler and Perry did their home work for the historical facts, I allways learn something

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Harlan Coben set huge sales records with last year’s Six Years - and he’s poised to do it again in his next breathtaking stand-alone thriller. Harlan Coben, author of six consecutive instant number-one New York Times best sellers and a total of 24 award-winning, best-selling, and internationally acclaimed novels, returns with another ripped-from-real-life thriller full of impossibly high emotional stakes and the real-to-life characters for which he has become famous.

    Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    John Grisham a gripping storey teller has proven again that the court room is his forte , you don't want to pass on this book. If you have not read previous Grisham novels you should , The Firm, The Pelican Brief, A Time to Kill (1989) with trial lawyer Jake Brigance.
    The return of Jake Brigance fighting against the hostility, hatred , discrimination , violence and ignorance of the south was very emotional and truthfully , the way it was.
    You are totally involved from beginning to end and hard to stop listening with great characters and the narration by Michael Beck is believable.
    There should be a special five + or six star .

    Returning from a covert mission, Mitch Rapp was publicly hailed by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. After years of working in the shadows, Rapp was caught in the media spotlight - and marked for death by virtually every terrorist in the world. Now a CIA advisor, Rapp is ready to battle terror far from the front lines. But when a Navy SEAL team in the Philippines is ambushed, all evidence points to a leak within the U.S. State Department. And a greater threat lurks....

    It first I was going to shelve it, and wait for a slow day . but after I started into it I could not put it put away. I think that was the first I have read by the author Vince Flynn and will look into more of his works especially the Mitch Rapp Series . The narrator George Guidall was excellent.
    Very pleased with this purchase.

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

Nash’s show is dedicated to beating the cops at their own game, solving murders before they can. Now he has the murder of Lita Mendez in his sights....

    I am glad I did not accept the critical thoughts of others and bought this book. I liked the sound affects which were perfect in my opinion and in the proper places.

    This is the fourth book I have read by author -David Baldacci and the narrating team of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy was absolutely superb.

    This reading was so close to 5 star that I had to give it a five star rating ( the first time I have)

    Definitely going to read more. He is starting to be one of my favorite authors.
