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.

    "Very boring!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I found it boring and not to the same standard as other Clive Cussler books I have read. Disappointed with the book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I liked Clive Cussler books until now. NOT SURE WHAT TO READ NEXT.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Scott Brick is good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Noother comments.

    "Disappointing: Couldn't finish it."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Use a different narrator. That would have freshened it up. Scott Brick is fine, but he always sounds a bit sardonic, in his affect. He's a good performer, I just like a break from his particular affect.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry again?

    Less likely after reading this book. There's just not enough "fiber" in the plot to chew on. I've got two books by Cussler right now besides this


    How could the performance have been better?

    Scott Brick and George Guidall, suffer from over-exposure at this point. Both good performers, but they don't surprise me any more. They respond predictably in all plot parts. That's not a bad thing, they're just over-used at this point.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    dissapointment. Plot was too shallow, too simplistic, too predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank goodness Audible allows returns... This one isn't worth the time to listen to it.

    Any additional comments?

    I don't have a favorite Clive Cussler series - I just love them all! ... CC & Thomas Perry's treatment of the characters is so well done - even the dog is a wicked good character ... I enjoy the pace and content of each of the Fargo Adventure novels ... I just recommended this book and the series to a patron at our local library this evening and she went and got the first three in the series to read this weekend ... Scott Brick knocked it out of the ball park again with a wonderful narration ... looking forward to the next novel in this series!

    it was nice to hear a story I wanted to listen to all the way through. I have tried to listen to a few books lately that were ruined by a terrible narrator!

    "Another Clive Classic"

    As so many of Clives books are, imaginative and slightly beyond realistic, which makes them so much fun to read. Oh, Yes, can't forget adventurous!! I can't wait for the next fearsome Fargo feature :)

    "Love the Fargo's"

    I love the Fargo series. It is very easy reading and doesn't get to deep, but it is educational and fun. You have to get past the fact that they are the perfect couple and have skills beyond what they reasonably should have, but they keep it close enough to not go overboard. Nothing to change your life but definitely a fun read.

    "The Fargos"
    What made the experience of listening to The Mayan Secrets the most enjoyable?

    Scott Bricks reading of the story


    Would you be willing to try another book from Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry ? Why or why not?

    Clive is a great author


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Remi


    Any additional comments?

    Didn't seem up to Clives usual story line. The other Fargo books, (and his other series), all held me in suspense to the point that I could not wait to get back to them, but this one was lacking that excitement or anticipation.

    Story
    "Best "Fargo" Ever!"
    If you could sum up The Mayan Secrets in three words, what would they be?

    What A Blast!


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

    Yes, this story rolled right along, great twists and turns, had the usual charming predictability of a Cussler novel, but so much more fun than the latest issues.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brick is one of my favorite storytellers. What I love about him is, he reads aloud as if I were reading to myself.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    ...?( sorry this book was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it, but think of your own "tag line")


    Any additional comments?

    This is by far the best "Fargo" yet and one of the best Cussler collaborations lately, and I have never missed a single Cussler book yet.

    "Mediocre comic book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Mediocre unbelievable story with one-dimensional comic book characters. Even Scott Brick couldn't save it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry again?

    Doubtful


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

    Scott Brick is a fine reader. His performance was very good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I expected better
