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.

    "Great Entertaining Read"

    Clive Cussler does it again. From the first page of the book, the reader’s attention is grabbed and kept throughout the book. Although unbelievable, Clive Cussler entertains the reader with an action packed adventure of Sam and Remi Fargo, taking them from one continent to another as they try to find the treasures of Attila the Hun. I found this book to be an entertaining read that kept my attention throughout all 384 pages. I would definitely recommend it.

    Story
    "Predictable But Enjoyable"
    What did you love best about The Tombs?

    Classic Cussler action tale. Doesn't require a lot from the listener, and is fairly predictable. It's perfect to fill in between heavier fare. Relaxing and enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zoltan; he was a welcome addition to the usual cast of characters. A well trained, loyal dog is a delight in books as well as life.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Scott Brick's popularity mystifies me. He can't do accents at all, doesn't voice characters particularly well so the listener can differentiate among them, and he still doesn't moderate his voice well for different situations. He's obviously trying to correct these deficiencies (which I and other reviewers have noted in the past) and has succeeded in not making each line sound like a question. He's just OK for a Cussler potboiler, but definitely not for better writing.


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

    It's enjoyable, but it wasn't so captivating that I couldn't hit the stop button.

    "Good history lesson"

    I have not read many CC books but always like the stories of fact behind the fiction. In this case Sam and Remi are great characters and always have their knocks as well as the wins. I did not read the previous one in this series due to some reviews about it being boring. I can say that this story is not, and well worth the listen in this series.

    I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.

    Story
    "The Fargos are at it again."
    Would you listen to The Tombs again? Why?

    Yes, the story is interesting in a historical and adventure sense. The characters are as with most of Cussler's characters are well defined and developed in a way that pulls you into the story even if you are not normally an adventure book series person.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tombs?

    The fighting scene in which the Fargos are using cannon balls to fight off snipers. The way the Fargos ecape the main bad guys home on horseback after using flour to cause a flash over explosion to set the kitchen on fire.


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

    Yes, in fact while at working doing the stocking at night my co-workers would give me funny looks because of my random outburst of laughter related to the story. I loved having the story going thru headphones as I worked through the long hours in the very early morning

    "The Fargo's are great!"
    What did you love best about The Tombs?

    I love Clive Cussler. He has long been one of my favorite authros, and he does not disappoint in this book. Sam and Remi are at the top of their game.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The introduction of the dog.


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

    This is the first Scott Brick narrated book. He did a wonderful job


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    High stakes thrills! Wonderful book.

    Story
    "Starts slow and never really picks up"
    Would you listen to The Tombs again? Why?

    No there are to many other books I haven't read or listened to yet.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    SPOILER ALERT: The most interesting aspect was that they were hunting for the tomb of Atilla the Hun and after finding treasure cashes and clues all over Europe and Asia he winds up being buried in the Roman catacombs behind a false wall.

    The least interesting aspect was that the bad guys in the book are about as smart and scary as 1st graders and their henchmen are even worse, and then the Fargos are like Einstein in comparison. Then they wait till the very end for the Fargos and the bad guys to have a shoot out .... IN CALIFORNIA AFTER THEY FOUND THE TREASURE AND PUT IT IN MUSEUMS. Just when i thought it was over there were four more chapters that were completely pointless.


    What aspect of Scott Brick’s performance would you have changed?

    He needs to put a little more enthusiasm into the characters the way he read it made it seem like the characters were bored all the time


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

    Absolutely not as it was it took me most of a month to get through it.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second Fargo Adventure I've listened to and the other one wasn't any better. Its kind of a mix between romance, adventure and mystery that failed miserably, and should be covered in bacon and thrown into a kennel full of trained German Sheppard attack dogs.

    Story
    "My first audio book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Tombs the most enjoyable?

    I liked that the speaker used different voices to distinguish the different characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was a typical Clive Cussler. I have always been a fan of his so I wasn't disappointed with this one. There was a little bit of mystery, action, and suspense.


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

    No


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

    No. I generally don't have the time to listen to a book in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to admit that as an avid reader, I had a bit of difficulty concentrating on a book that was being read TO me. I'm used to being the one reading the book. When I usually read, I can sit down and concentrate on the story. With an audio book, I tend to want to do other things and end up missing some of the story if I'm concentrating on a different task. That's not to say that the concept isn't a good one. I think if I got used to it, I wouldn't mind having a book read to me on occasion.

    "Best Fargo book yet!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Very entertaining, no dragging parts. Characters were wonderfully amusing, sinister and believable.


    What other book might you compare The Tombs to and why?

    We've listened to a couple of other Fargo books. This one was more developed and portrayed the Fargos as being tougher and more capable


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

    I love Scott Brick. I pick books just because he has read them. My husband is German and is terribly impressed with all of his accents. He is the perfect reader!


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

    No. We have a 10 hour commute every weekend and listen to audio books.
