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.

Another great one

I know, I know . . . they are all the same, but I still enjoy them. I always like when Clive shows up in each book. A lot of action as always. I love the banter between the Fargo's.

Just as good the second time through

it is amazing that the mental pictures you get the first time you read something will flood back in the second time . if you didn't remember anything it must have been a boring book right?

Entertaining read with a lackluster ending!

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

Yes if they like decent action and interesting main characters

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I thought it was a little disappointing compared to how much build up there was throughout the rest of the book.

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

I thought his performance was very good.

Was The Tombs worth the listening time?

Yes, definitely!

WHY HAVENT THEY MADE THIS MOVIE YET?!

What made the experience of listening to The Tombs the most enjoyable?

By Far the best Fargo book. I love this entire series, and this book is packed with action and adventure. I really, really hope that these books are made into movies, this book is just so entertaining! bravo!

What did you like best about this story?

The ending wasn't a usual Fargo ending. Just when you think the storm has calmed, another plot twist!

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

Everything.

The Tombs - Nice Adventure

The story was good to very good. It kept my interest since it is based on historical subject which I fancy. It has a nice historical reconstruction I like as well. Some of the actions are bit stretch but not outlandish. I like the geographic and cultural backdrops. It could be made into a movie as well. I glad I listen it and would listen / read another in the series. I do not think I would read this novel again. It was not that good.

The performance by Mr. Brick was very good. I forgot it was a male imitating a female voice.

Clive does it again

Enjoyable escapism and a quite different plot. I again marvel at the research that must have been used to develop the conjecture that makes up Cussler's many plots. I like the way that the author seemingly supports capitalist archaeology and at the same time stresses the desire to maintain the need to preserve the antiquities for the public to see and learn from.
