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.

What A Blast!
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.
Brick is one of my favorite storytellers. What I love about him is, he reads aloud as if I were reading to myself.
...?( sorry this book was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it, but think of your own "tag line")
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.
Mid way. I enjoy the light heartedness of the stories. Good comic relief too.
Sam and his buddies kicking butt in the little village.
Mediocre unbelievable story with one-dimensional comic book characters. Even Scott Brick couldn't save it.
Scott Brick is a fine reader. His performance was very good.
Disappointment. I expected better
Great story with well developed characters... the Fargo's are great fun and Scott Brick brings them to life.
Plot moves fast with many "almost caught" moments
No! I really like audio books.
Have always enjoyed reading about Mayan History. This fits in to my interest.
Outstanding as usual
Keeping history special
I have not been a follower of the Fargos, but since this is book 5, I would have to assume there are at least four others. The focus on the Mayan codex that is the initiating cause of this story leads to the adventures of the Fargos. Reminds me of the old stories of Nick and Laura Charles. Regardless of how difficult the situation, the solution appears, either self-generated or from outside fources. The story is good, if you don't want to think too much about it (which was exactly my reason for buying the book). Scott Brick does a good job in narrating the story. I'm not sure I want to follow the series, but you won't get stressed out over the seemingly impossible dilemmas that befall the main characters because you know that they will always get away safely.
The narration. I liked the book itself.
YES! His attempts at female Spanish accents was horrible.
Take the Fargos, insert random bad guy, random plot, and random setting. Sprinkle some Cussler magic and you get an enjoyable book. Won't blow your socks off, but then if you have read any recent Cussler you knew that already....
The narrator had a fake accent that made it difficult to follow the story
Fake accent took away from listening to the story
Wanted to hear the story, but not by this narrator
