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.

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!
Didn't read it
Any of Remi and Sam's book.
Kicking butt at their house
You can't go wrong listening to this book
Hurried, Shallow, Awful Narration, Predictable
He struggled with the different accents, Remy's voice was grating, Selma was not the Selma I imagine when reading Cussler--like my Selma better.
I am an avid Cussler fan. I have read/or listened to just about everything he has written. I was excited when the Fargo series hit the shelves. But, to tell the truth, I am a bit disappointed in the Fargoes. This story in particular seems hurried. There is not great character or plot depth. Do not make this your first Clive Cussler book, Start with the Dirk Pitt adventures and you will be hooked. I do love the Oregon files, NUMA files, and the Issac Bell books. So it isn't a prejudice against newer characters.
The narration was poor. There are many different European accents in the book, but the narrator does not have the talent to create believable characters. The accents all sound the same. Selma and Remy's "voices" are horrid and do not fit their characters' personalities. Remy sounds like she stepped off the set of an "adult film" and Selma's voice is beyond description. I may be more critical because I am such a Cussler fan. But, I do not think I would like this book in written or audible form. All the points are strictly out of respect of Cussler. It is not an awful book, but definitely not his best. I may have to forgo the Fargoes.
Starts out same as all other Largo tales. However, story gets old as the impossible continues to happen over and over again.
Make the story more realistic as the Largos go about the adventure and less mission impossible.
