The outstanding new Sam and Remi Fargo adventure from the number-one New York Times best-selling author.
An 800-year-old treasure...an ancient cypher wheel...a brutal murder...and a man who will stop at nothing to claim what he considers rightfully his.
Husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo have gone on impossible missions before and faced many perils, but never have they faced an adversary as determined as the one before them now. The battle will take them halfway around the world and at its end will be either one of the most glorious finds in history - or certain death.

I love this series of books and eagerly got the newest addition. Way too predictable, didn't learn much historically and the characters were pretty shallow in this one. I guess Remi and Sam are running out of new adventures...:(
This was kind of the same old Fargo story with the rich bad guy, lost treasure and the resultant close scrapes with death, as expected, but this one is very dull. Unfortunately, it reads like a rough draft rather than a final copy and Cussler fans will likely be very disappointed. Supporting characters are underdeveloped, the historical tie-ins are vague, and the intended climax is anything but. In addition, my favorite narrator, Scott Brick, is less than stellar this time around. Several times his English accent takes on an Australian twang which was pretty distracting.
Unfortunately or fortunately the Fargo's stumble across another treasure and some mad man give them the slip and win the day. A little mixing up of the formula is in order with the series.
I always enjoy reading about Sam and Remi's latest adventures and the many things that happen to them. This is a good, entertaining read that is definitely worth the reader's time. The book will uplift and make the reader smile throughout.
Great adventure! The plot kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what happens next. Can't wait to get my hands on their next adventure. Scott Brick is perfect for all of Clive Cusslers books.
I love Clive Custer, these Fargo books are my favorites. Great story lines, historical context. Fun to read - sorry when I'm done.

As usual I really enjoyed another Clive Cussler book they're always so entertaining lots of adventure and excitement.
Books are ways to sharpen our minds . . . and souls.
this story seemed somewhat disjointed and with several unresolved issues. I really like the characters and how they have developed from the earlier books and this story continues the progression. I probably would have given the story only 3 stars otherwise.
I am a lifelong reader and lover of books. Rediculously overeducated and currently teaching math in wyoming.
Scott Brick puts accents and voices on and off to make sure following the story is very easy and clear.
Connecting this mystery to the tale about King John's lost treasure was brilliant.
there were many great scenes, especially the details about Nottingham's caves and King's Limb.
yes, this was a listen until it is done book!
I do have one caveat: although this is an excellent book, there is a hole in the plot line between chapters 30 and 31 where Sam notices a car behind him but then the next mention of cars is a cryptic note about an accident where some of the bad guys may have been hurt. I listened to that section repeatedly and can't find any mention of the accident...
