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.

    I drive an average of 350 miles a week. Without an audio book playing I would go bonkers.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Cussler Fan"
    Would you listen to The Tombs again? Why?

    One of Clive Cussler's best in my opinion. Fascinating plot line and great delivery, as usual, by Scott Brick. I own nearly all of Cussler's books via Audible audiobook and this is one I'll listen to over and over.

    "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.

    Story
    "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!

    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!
