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.

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.

    "Huge Letdown"
    What disappointed you about The Tombs?

    Quality of writing and plot flow was not even in the same league as all of the other Fargo adventures. I love and have listened to every single Fargo book as they are released, and I didn't even finish listening to this one. The plot flow makes sense, but contains no sensory details or attempts to really make you feel like you are there, which I think has been present in all of the previous Fargo books.


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

    Yes, of course. Lifelong Cussler fan, and love every other book he has written / co written except this one.


    What character would you cut from The Tombs?

    I already 'know' Sam and Remy, but the character development of all the new characters was slipshod.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed with writing quality in general. Scott Brick, as always, is one of the best narrators on Audible.

    "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.

    "Always a good story with the fargos"

    Another good listen as is typical of any Clive Cussler book. Some of it maybe far fetched but this is fiction and its called creative license.

    "Another great one"

    I know, I know . . . they are all the same, but I still enjoy them. I always like when Clive shows up in each book. A lot of action as always. I love the banter between the Fargo's.

    "Entertaining read with a lackluster ending!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes if they like decent action and interesting main characters


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I thought it was a little disappointing compared to how much build up there was throughout the rest of the book.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I thought his performance was very good.


    Was The Tombs worth the listening time?

    Yes, definitely!
