Publisher's Summary

The outstanding new novel from the #1 New York Times - bestselling grand master of adventure.

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico, when they come upon a remarkable discovery - the skeleton of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot, and within the pot, a Mayan book, larger than anyone has ever seen. The book contains astonishing information about the Mayans, about their cities, and about mankind itself. The secrets are so powerful that some people would do anything to possess them - as the Fargos are about to find out.

Before their adventure is done, many men and women will die for that book - and Sam and Remi may just be among them.

    "Too slow and repetitive"
    What disappointed you about The Mayan Secrets?

    The first time the husband and wife team escaped death it was fun, the second time, not so much, the third time, boring. And the book was basically them meeting death and escaping...time and time again. BORING.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Do not know.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Mayan Secrets?

    I would have asked for a rewrite, and I lot Clive Cussler a lot so that's a strong statement.


    Any additional comments?

    This book probably appeals to a certain type of person, I was just bored with all the guns fights and inane, improbable conversations.

    I am a husband/dad/granddad who loves books. My reviews are my subjective opinions. My hope is they will help others make buying decisions.

    "Best of the series so far"

    I'm not a fan of the Sam and Remi Fargo series, but The Mayan Secrets is a superb action and suspense thriller. The quality from book to book is too variable. There are two more books in the series for me to listen to.

    "My First Fargo Book"

    Clive Cussler adventures are always entertaining and exciting and Scott Brick continues to be one of my favorite narrators. A good read (listen).

    "This Review Needs A Title...So, I Gave it One"

    Fargo adventures again! Author(s) have done lots of homework on Mayan sites and relics--that's apparent: I know more now than I did before reading this. One wonders; however, about the truth of it all. There's a little filler, like when the two of them float the underground river--you know they'll make it because this is adventure #5 of many.. So, no suspense there. Characters? we learn more about Sam and Selma shines as always. Sarah Allersby stars as Cruella DeVille. Fun, brainless, read.

    "Another great Cussler audio book"

    The Fargo's are at it again. Helping out a disaster in Central America, they stubbled on a discovery throws them in the middle of another treasure hunt. The ending reveals a little more about Sam's past which even Remi did not know.

    "Awesome performance by Scott Brick"

    As always, Scott Brick's performance was top notch. The story this time seemed to steer away from established character traits. This took away from the story as it stood out like a sore thumb. This is one of the hazards of a series like this but also one of the reasons to love these series as you begin to know the characters.

    "Too much "magic""

    Quite frankly, I found the authors invoked "magic" at a convenient time at the end of the book with the uncanny availability of fire power. That generally spoils a story for me.

    "okay Scott Brick."

    this is how it is. I'd never heard Scott Brick, before listening to this book series. the sing song lilt is here to stay. I must admit he's "growing" on me.
    honestly, I can't imagine anyone else's voice telling me about the Fargo's this was my favorite installment, so far. it was James Bond level shenanigans.
    I WANT TO BE REMY FARGO!!
