The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood's Lost Empire, the second installment of the fantastic Fargo adventure stories. Read by the award-winning narrator Scott Brick.
While scuba diving in Tanzania, Sam and Remi Fargo come upon a relic belonging to a long-lost Confederate ship. An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery - but unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase. Mexico's ruling party, the ultranationalist Mexica Tenochca, is intent on finding that artefact as well, because it contains a secret that could destroy the party utterly.Through Tanzania and Zanzibar, into the rainforests of Madagascar, and across the Indian Ocean to Indonesia and the legendary site of the 1883 Krakatoa explosion, the Fargos and their ruthless opponents pursue the hunt - but only one can win. And the penalty for failure is death.

"Delivers what it promises." (Financial Times)
Overall this book has been a good read and for fans of Clive Cussler it's certainly worthwhile in the collection. That said however, I found Scott's voice to be a little monotone at times but overall he did a good job with the book. His accents were 3 out of 5 but when portraying female characters it was not the best - at time I had to force myself to imagine a woman behind the strong male toned voice.
As for the story line this was a little weak for me especially compared to what I have come to expect from such a great best-selling author like Clive Cussler. That said, however, I did enjoy the book and am glad I purchased it.
Yet again another compelling listen from one of my favourite authors, well read and performed.
Found it so hard to put it down absolutely brilliant narration on every level loved it.
good book not as interesting as the usual cussler but all the same enjoyable if your an experienced cussler fan then 8 times out of ten you will enjoy this book, added with the voice of Mr Scott brick, always a pleasure to listen too.
