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.

    "another great Fargo Adventure"
    Would you listen to The Tombs again? Why?

    Possibley, it was a great story, but I don't usually read books twice unless they are really great or part of a series. This was a fun interesting read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really like the Fargos, they are some of my favorite characters.


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

    Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators, I always look forward to any book he narrates


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great fast moving thriller. Its a great ride, like all of Cusslers novels of whom I am a big fan.

    "Love This Series! Love the Fargos!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    "You Had Me At Hello!" I've loved these two characters since the very first book. With that being said this book to me is the weakest of the series so far. There were only two times during the story that there really seemed to the kind of trouble and solutions that I have found the Fargos so good at finding their way out.I did really enjoy the two sub-characters. I have a dear friend that is just like one of those character and I always find it amazing. What ever you need he always know somebody or knows somebody who knows somebody.I do love the authors style even though I was a tad disappointed.....but only a tad. I can't wait for the next one!!!.


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

    The ending was predictable and I expected the twist on twist but then I'm always thinking ahead in a Cussler book.


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

    OMG! Have I listen to Scott Brick!!! He is one of my very favorite narrators. His male and female voices flow easily and he has the perfect timbre for this type of story! I do think the thriller/adventure is his best genre. You Rock Scott!!!


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

    I did almost listen to this book in one sitting! I saved it up for a twelve hour drive I had. I have to make this drive once a year and I always save a Cussler book for that drive. Time just seems to fly.


    Any additional comments?

    I have never found a Cussler series I didn't like!

    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    Scott Brick is a dreadful reader. I didn't notice when I clicked " add to cart" . I want my money back! Beware. This one you'll have to read!

    Keeps you moving on walks, makes the time fly and gets you out when walking is not what you want to do. The Fargo's almost reach the status of super heros.

    Story
    "Another hit for Mr. C!"
    Would you listen to The Tombs again? Why?

    Yes, I WILL listen to it again just to make sure I haven't missed anything.


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

    Yes, as all of Mr. Cussler's books do. This one went to many exotic locations with great descriptions and lots of history!


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

    Mr. Brick is a very talented narrator. He shows just enough emotion and manages the 'speed' to the events taking place.


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

    Yes, but it is a tad too long for that, ha!


    Any additional comments?

    Love the Fargos...waiting for more!

    Story
    "Classic cussler!"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Yes, entertaining and Scott brick is just wonderful, the whole story line of following the clues in reverse order taking us into the journey and life of Attila was unique! Clive cussler has become one of my favorite authors . Action, comedy, romance (seen thur the eyes of man), strong story line, really what more could you want. Pleasant and very enjoyable.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    cussler books have allowed me to think of history in a much different way. When reading or watching a historic period/story, I ask myself about the character, personal interaction, state of mind, each character must have been experiencing. He has brought history and anthropology together for me. Growing up in the late 60's early 70's history was taught to be dates and results. Not that is totally bad, we diffenately need to learn from history and not repeat the mistakes of the past. ( good concept , poor application...humans!). But before Cusslers books I never really put a real and personal connection between history and me. Yea, I must be slow. Maybe because his books are just so much fun!


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Love the opening of all his books, first a bit of history (twisted of course or it would not be fiction). The the stumble upon action right away!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    absolutely nothing! Scott brick is one of the premier narrators. Never do you not know who is being presented, he changes the total perception of each character. The sutle nuance of each charter, their tone, their breath spacing, just makes the listener recognize everyone and their current emotional condition. Exceptional!

    "Fun and Entertaining Adventure!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Tombs to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version


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

    Yes, I loved the plot. It kept me interested and it moved fast!


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

    No, but I liked this performance - his accents were good.


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

    I listened to the first half on a long car ride - and I didn't get bored once! I kept finding other ways to listen to the rest of it (chores or walks). I'm rather picky about books keeping my interest and I buy audible books on a very regular basis. This book was a great choice and well -worth my monthly credit!


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, loved the many different locations of the story - it made me feel like I was on this great adventure! Great action and suspense!
