Publisher's Summary

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.

    Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.

    Story
    "Stand by your Man"
    What made the experience of listening to The Mayan Secrets the most enjoyable?

    I used new 1.25x speed. Great as author team intended. I liked this book much better than book #1 as it had better editing and Thomas brought new zest to the adventures.


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

    The villains were spot on. They kept you listening to see what happens next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Remy refused the air tank.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Another reviewer said this was the best in the series. I purchased all 7 at once, listened to #1 then jumped to this story.


    Any additional comments?

    Take advantage of series sale. Scott Brick is Fargo

    Story
    "Too slow and repetitive"
    What disappointed you about The Mayan Secrets?

    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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Do not know.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Mayan Secrets?

    I would have asked for a rewrite, and I lot Clive Cussler a lot so that's a strong statement.


    Any additional comments?

    This book probably appeals to a certain type of person, I was just bored with all the guns fights and inane, improbable conversations.

    "okay Scott Brick."

    this is how it is. I'd never heard Scott Brick, before listening to this book series. the sing song lilt is here to stay. I must admit he's "growing" on me.
    honestly, I can't imagine anyone else's voice telling me about the Fargo's this was my favorite installment, so far. it was James Bond level shenanigans.
    I WANT TO BE REMY FARGO!!

    "Another fun read"

    The book is a fun story of a great couple. There are obviously some stretches and jumps that require you to just go along, but it is not meant to be real life. It is fiction. This particular story ramps up the intrigue and you begin to really think that Fargos will not be able to resolve this one. For a quick read and some light reading I recommend this one.

    "Another exciting adventure!"

    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.

    "Fantastically Wild"

    Haven't read Cussler in years, but have been enjoying the Fargo series. Much of what is in the books is wildly unbelievable, but it is fiction.

    "my favorite fargo story (of the 7)"

    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.
