The outstanding new novel from the #1 New York Times - bestselling grand master of adventure.
Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico, when they come upon a remarkable discovery - the skeleton of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot, and within the pot, a Mayan book, larger than anyone has ever seen. The book contains astonishing information about the Mayans, about their cities, and about mankind itself. The secrets are so powerful that some people would do anything to possess them - as the Fargos are about to find out.
Before their adventure is done, many men and women will die for that book - and Sam and Remi may just be among them.

The first time the husband and wife team escaped death it was fun, the second time, not so much, the third time, boring. And the book was basically them meeting death and escaping...time and time again. BORING.
Do not know.
I would have asked for a rewrite, and I lot Clive Cussler a lot so that's a strong statement.
This book probably appeals to a certain type of person, I was just bored with all the guns fights and inane, improbable conversations.
This is another exciting Fargo adventure with tense situations that make it hard to stop listening. It has a good story line and conclusion that will leave you satisfied. The narrator did a great job with all of the characters and I look forward to the next adventure.
at first the story was a little slow and getting the Mayan codex and the crazy lady who in the end got her justice and so did the other two criminals enjoyed listening to the story
loved how the story was built up, one adventure and individual story at a time. all the details add to the adventure. i appreciated the way the story was wound up and that sam and remi were just a part of the end. it was more satisfying that way. this story was my favorite fargo story, out of the seven published. can't wait for september for a new fargo story.
I enjoyed this book, I just found the ending to be abrupt. would have enjoyed the protagonist get a little more karma. as always, Scott Brick is fantastic
Very entertaining. Not too complex, but enough to be interesting. Lots of twists and turns.
"Great easy listening adventure"
Scott Brick's reading was flawless as always. Simple and exciting, throughly enjoyable listening. The best Clive Cussler for a while.
"A great Clive Cussler adventure"
I enjoyed the story edge of the seat gripping narative. Thr narrator waa good. I got to experience the different characters and imagined the various scenes he was describing. It would have been better to have a female narrator for the female characters. Great listen :-)
"Another Fargo Adventure"
I really like these Fargo stories by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry, and I always look forward to the next one. They're my guilty pleasure. I compare them to watching a film like National Treasure - you just switch off, relax, and enjoy the show. It can be a bit cheesy at times, but I actually like that about these books - the relationship between Sam and Remi. All in all, these are fun adventures and I always look forward to the next one. Keep 'em coming! Oh, and Scott Brick does a good job at narration. I actually seek out Scott’s other work now too.
"Another good read from Cussler"
The storyline is not excessively complicated or containing too many characters, therefore the audio version is easy to follow and enjoy. I have not read the print version but would anticipate it as equally compelling and easy read.
Selma is such a cool, unflappable person, she rarely expresses surprise or excitement and continually predicts what it needed.
I enjoyed the storyline, history and geographical travels, it left a feel good factor
This is a good read, Fast paced with an interesting historical connection. It takes the reader across quite a bit of the globe and reflects the reality of some lesser travelled countries and the problems their citizens face. The partnership of the Fargo's with a specialist is becoming a trend but one which adds credibility to the story, The specialist in this one and some of the other characters they meet along their journey all help to make this worth reading.
