Publisher's Summary

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site. What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine. The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder....a bounty that has never been found. As they follow the trail through Hungary, Italy, France, Russia, and Kazakhstan - a trail that they discover leads them not to one tomb, but five - the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of amateur treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself...and will stop at nothing to claim the tombs' riches as his own.

    Story
    "Predictable But Enjoyable"
    What did you love best about The Tombs?

    Classic Cussler action tale. Doesn't require a lot from the listener, and is fairly predictable. It's perfect to fill in between heavier fare. Relaxing and enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zoltan; he was a welcome addition to the usual cast of characters. A well trained, loyal dog is a delight in books as well as life.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Scott Brick's popularity mystifies me. He can't do accents at all, doesn't voice characters particularly well so the listener can differentiate among them, and he still doesn't moderate his voice well for different situations. He's obviously trying to correct these deficiencies (which I and other reviewers have noted in the past) and has succeeded in not making each line sound like a question. He's just OK for a Cussler potboiler, but definitely not for better writing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's enjoyable, but it wasn't so captivating that I couldn't hit the stop button.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "A bad novel is a bad novel even when written by..."

    ....Clive Cussler. My 2 star rating is being very generous with this contrived novel. Sam and Remi Fargo take on the facts and legends around Attila the Hun who built his empire in central Europe during the 5th century CE. The actual adventures of the Fargo's is good at times and incredible (not credible) at others. I still have 3 books to listen to in this series. I'd much prefer to be listening to Cussler's excellent Isaac Bell series.

    ""Banded From Driving In 4 Countries""
    If you could sum up The Tombs in three words, what would they be?

    Fast Raider's Adventure
    Take advantage of the Fargo Sale!
    Note: listen at new 1.25x speed to feel the thrill


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

    This is my 3rd listen in 2 days! I didn't listen in order as stories had different co-authors. I love what they bring to these adventures. Never boring. The dialogue is great in this one. Remy is even better in this one as co-author knows how to bring out her wit.
    Love Zoltan, woof


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

    Well, Mr Brick is always great. His eastern European accents are so great and consistent, you feel like you are right there in the city having coffee with them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I love the opening scenes in this book as in the other 2 I have tried. They set up the adventure and make you want to gear up and join them.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love a fun adventure that adds culture, travel, and a fast pace, enjoy these stories.

    "Typical Cussler"

    This is a Typical Cussler Novel. It is fast moving and fast paced from the beginning. It keeps you on the edge from the start and is hard to stop once it is started. The characters are always in wild and fast paced situations and always find clever and exciting ways to prevail.
    Scott Brick's narration is always good and clear and easy to listen to.
    Clive Cussler's novels are always great and I can't wait for the next one, no matter who the characters are, to come out.

    "Great"

    Lots of action. This may be one of Cussler's best Fargo books. I hated for my trip home to end each day because I wanted to keep listening.

    "Good history lesson"

    I have not read many CC books but always like the stories of fact behind the fiction. In this case Sam and Remi are great characters and always have their knocks as well as the wins. I did not read the previous one in this series due to some reviews about it being boring. I can say that this story is not, and well worth the listen in this series.

    "The Best Fargo Adventure Yet"

    A great story with tons of action, and lots of archeological intrigue! Scott Brick's characters are excellent.
    My only disappointment: Selma using the Fargo's first names.

    "Not quite as good as the first three"

    I fell in love with the relationship between Sam and Remi in the first 3 books of this series. This one lost some of the fun aspects of their relationship. For example, Sam used to say, "That's my girl." to Remi on occasion, but those kind of comments aren't in this book. Their relationship isn't quite as fun as it was before. Also the relationship between "Mr and Mrs Fargo" changed with Selma who now called them by their given names with no explanation. The adventure and excitement are there, but it just wasn't quite as good as the first three.

    I enjoyed the older Cussler books growing up but these later collaborations don't do much for me
