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 so enjoy the Fargo adventures and this book was very fun.. I found it not the run of the mill
Clive Cussler book, I found myself enjoying every moment of this book.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
It's enjoyable, but it wasn't so captivating that I couldn't hit the stop button.
This is a Typical Cussler Novel. It is fast moving and fast paced from the beginning. It keeps you on the edge from the start and is hard to stop once it is started. The characters are always in wild and fast paced situations and always find clever and exciting ways to prevail.
Scott Brick's narration is always good and clear and easy to listen to.
Clive Cussler's novels are always great and I can't wait for the next one, no matter who the characters are, to come out.
Lots of action. This may be one of Cussler's best Fargo books. I hated for my trip home to end each day because I wanted to keep listening.
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.
The introduction of the dog.
This is the first Scott Brick narrated book. He did a wonderful job
High stakes thrills! Wonderful book.
No there are to many other books I haven't read or listened to yet.
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.
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
Absolutely not as it was it took me most of a month to get through it.
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.
Excellent. As always a fantastic read with great imagination and written so you feel you are right there with them
"A great listen!"
