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.

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.
I really like the Fargos, they are some of my favorite characters.
Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators, I always look forward to any book he narrates
This was a great fast moving thriller. Its a great ride, like all of Cusslers novels of whom I am a big fan.
"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!!!.
The ending was predictable and I expected the twist on twist but then I'm always thinking ahead in a Cussler book.
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!!!
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.
I have never found a Cussler series I didn't like!
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.
Yes, I WILL listen to it again just to make sure I haven't missed anything.
Yes, as all of Mr. Cussler's books do. This one went to many exotic locations with great descriptions and lots of history!
Mr. Brick is a very talented narrator. He shows just enough emotion and manages the 'speed' to the events taking place.
Yes, but it is a tad too long for that, ha!
Love the Fargos...waiting for more!
sports announcer, cyclist, enjoys to travel and the outdoors.
I think you either love cussler or not, if you love him you will enjoy this book. Need i say more. and Scott Brick is a god.
Yes. Fargos always interesting. I would like to see more adventures with them in new books.
I want more books with the Fargos.
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.
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!
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!
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!
lots of twists and turns in story line
yes, always good
could have if I had the time
I didn't read the print version
Yes, I loved the plot. It kept me interested and it moved fast!
No, but I liked this performance - his accents were good.
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!
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!
"A great listen!"
I have read or listened all Clive Cusslers books to date and i havent found one i didnt like. Get this audiobook! You wont be dissapointed.
"Very far fetched"
Sorry but this just way too far fetched. I like a good adventure where the good guy prevail but this just takes it too far.
"Another great book"
Keeps you wanting more from start to finish, when is the next one due as I cannot wait very long
