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.

Uninspired. Characters not compelling.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No

What was most disappointing about Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry ’s story?

Repetitive. No much detail about Mayan Secrets. Nothing new revealed. Just a bunch of running here and there.

What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

Boring, Mono-toned, Flat

Did The Mayan Secrets inspire you to do anything?

Nothing. I'd rather learn more about the Mayan culture

Any additional comments?

Maybe if I read the book myself it would have seemed better.

Disappointing: Couldn't finish it.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Use a different narrator. That would have freshened it up. Scott Brick is fine, but he always sounds a bit sardonic, in his affect. He's a good performer, I just like a break from his particular affect.

Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry again?

Less likely after reading this book. There's just not enough "fiber" in the plot to chew on. I've got two books by Cussler right now besides this

How could the performance have been better?

Scott Brick and George Guidall, suffer from over-exposure at this point. Both good performers, but they don't surprise me any more. They respond predictably in all plot parts. That's not a bad thing, they're just over-used at this point.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

dissapointment. Plot was too shallow, too simplistic, too predictable.

Any additional comments?

Thank goodness Audible allows returns... This one isn't worth the time to listen to it.

Fargo Adventures Rock!

Any additional comments?

I don't have a favorite Clive Cussler series - I just love them all! ... CC & Thomas Perry's treatment of the characters is so well done - even the dog is a wicked good character ... I enjoy the pace and content of each of the Fargo Adventure novels ... I just recommended this book and the series to a patron at our local library this evening and she went and got the first three in the series to read this weekend ... Scott Brick knocked it out of the ball park again with a wonderful narration ... looking forward to the next novel in this series!
