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.

    "Clive does it again"

    Enjoyable escapism and a quite different plot. I again marvel at the research that must have been used to develop the conjecture that makes up Cussler's many plots. I like the way that the author seemingly supports capitalist archaeology and at the same time stresses the desire to maintain the need to preserve the antiquities for the public to see and learn from.

    "Love Sam and Remy"
    Where does The Tombs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story was a bit predictable BUT enjoyable as always


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick is a great narrator.


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

    Sam and Remy always crack me up! :) It is fun to get lost in their world with them, even if just for a bit.

    What did you love best about The Tombs?

    The history and development for setting the story into an exciting Adventure


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both the Fargo are favorites...they demonstrate not only how to be individuals, but define the courage and dedication it take to complete a relationship


    Which scene was your favorite?

    How Fargo followed his wife and could sense location without knowing, then as he came closer to her inprisonment, his insistence to learn Morse code is rewarded.


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

    just continued to keep my attention and didn't want to stop listening to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Clive Cussller know to mix history and tell the "rest of the story" together for a great racing and listening experience

    "not disappointed"
    Would you listen to The Tombs again? Why?

    in the future , sure, worth hearing again


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

    yes , moved along, and I could always depend on C.C. to bail them out when all looks nearly hopeless


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

    one of the very best of the best, we are one of Scott Bricks fans, he seem to be getting better and better,( a cast of hundreds)


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

    for sure if I could, my wife and I would stay in the car to listen for the end of the chapter


    Any additional comments?

    buy it , Cussler and Perry did their home work for the historical facts, I allways learn something

    Kept my interest through-out and a very intertaining read and thrilling mistery. A bit on the light side but still very good.

    "Good story Clive (finally)"

    This is what the old Pitt books were like, good plot some history and action. None of the save the world Bull**** the other series are gravitating toward with every addtional book he "C.C". co writes. You'll get that reference if you read the last Pitt book.
    Scott, not every one from Eastern Europe sounds like Adolf or Joseph just an FYI.

    "Awesome."
    Any additional comments?

    The Fargos don't disappoint. I was always a die-hard Dirk Pitt fan, but Sam and Remy Fargo have taken his place! I love every single Fargo adventure without exception. The fact that Scott Brick reads all of them is just icing on the cake. I honestly don't know how Mr. Cussler keeps coming up with different ideas. Granted, most of his books are somewhat formulaic, but for sheer entertainment value these books just can't be beat.

    "Another Cussler book"
    If you could sum up The Tombs in three words, what would they be?

    Very entertaining


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    The master as always.


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

    Fascinating.


    Any additional comments?

    Unlike the formula writers Cussler is able to create a story line and twist that continually entertain and puzzle me.

    "Great twists and turns kept my attention"
    What did you love best about The Tombs?

    The story line was modern and believable. Thought his story line fresh with sustained suspense.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought it was a believable story and the bad guys were not over the top. I'm attracted to the historic mysteries so it was in my wheel house. I liked the mental aspect of the investigation without the braun to save the day.


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

    Wow! Tough question because during the book I thought to myself on what a great transition he was making between characters. I don't have a favorite - he did a great job.


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

    Lost in history the East and West come together to find the elusive warrior.
