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.

    "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!

    "Forgo the Fargoes!!!"
    If you could sum up The Tombs in three words, what would they be?

    Hurried, Shallow, Awful Narration, Predictable


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Easy listening, No thinking story"
    If you could sum up The Tombs in three words, what would they be?

    Starts out same as all other Largo tales. However, story gets old as the impossible continues to happen over and over again.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Make the story more realistic as the Largos go about the adventure and less mission impossible.


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

    no
