Publisher's Summary

Treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo's search for a Romanov fortune brings them into perilous contact with an ambitious neo-Nazi clan in the thrilling adventure from the number one New York Times best-selling author.

In 1918, a ransom of enormous size was paid to free the Romanovs from the Bolsheviks, but, as history knows, the Romanovs died anyway. And the ransom? During World War II, the Nazis stole it from the Russians, and after that - it vanished. Until now.

When a modern-day kidnapping captures the attention of husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo, the couple soon learn that these long-lost riches may be back in play, held in trust by the descendants of a Nazi guerrilla faction called the Werewolves. It is their mission to establish the Fourth Reich, and their time is coming soon.

As the Fargos follow the trail across Europe, Northern Africa, and South America, they know only one thing. This quest is greater than anything they have ever done - it is their chance to make someone answer for unspeakable crimes and to prevent them from happening again.

Good not great

The narrator is the best in the business! The story is a cookie cutter format of the other Remie books in the past! Cannot continue or will lose fans!
The book is entertaining but too much like all the rest! Change the counties and treasure— you have a new book!
Moving on from this series!

The Amber Room!

action-adventure, nazis, tsars, spies, mystery, historical-places-events

Another spectacular adventure mixing past,present, and speculation from the formidable imagination of Cussler! Jewels paid to the Bolsheviks for the safety of the royal family, nazis still searching for the Amber Room to raise money for a resurgence of their cause, and lots of secret police and spies. Keeps you reading long into the night.
Scott Brick continues to be excellent as narrative interpretation.
