Overview

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in a race to find the famed burial site of Attila the Hun in this adventure in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.

When an archeologist friend requests their help to excavate a top-secret historical site, the Fargos are intrigued. But they have no idea that their discoveries will set them on a hunt for a prize beyond all imagination.

The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold, jewels, and plunder: a bounty that has never been found.

As they follow a trail throughout Europe, it leads them not to one tomb, but five. The Fargos also find themselves pitted against a thieving group of treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself—and will stop at nothing to achieve his destiny...

Great book!! Could't put it down. As always Clive keeps you on your toes and the action moving. I haven't read a book yet of his I didn't like.

As always, I read cover to cover in a matter of hours. Could not put it down. Impatiently waiting for his next book. I preorder all of the books he writes.

If you are a Cussler fan as we are and feel compelled to read everything with his name attached, do yourself a favor and get this from your local library for free. It is so disappointing, reads like a 5th grade beginning writer and costs a lot for a digital edition. It will put me off Clive for awhile as he clearly is not reading what his partners are writing! Skip this one - 0 stars if I could!

It is very doubtful that Clive Cussler wrote this book. Lots of filler written into the pages.

I have yet to read a Cussler book that has not been a spell binder and this is another one in his long list of hits. No matter who his main characters are he always manages to keep them exciting--and I enjoy how he has been bringing himself into the stories in minor roles just at the necessary times to help things move along.

One of his best efforts. Definitely the best of the most recent ones. I always love how he starts out with factual history then weaves in fiction, then moves on to total fiction. He may be best story teller since Mark Twain.

The Fargo's are my favorite literary couple! Following their scavenger hunts are thrilling! This is now my favorite series of Clive Cussler.

An easy to read historical/fictional fantasy about the supposed treasures of Atilla the Hun. At times it seemed that the Fargo's found it very convenient to access needed resources, even in what are considered third world countries, and never seemed to run out of funds either. Probably carrying the American Express card. Also, the bad guys seemed to have an easy time of locating them, including all the way to California for the final battle that described all battles. But the book was entertaining, and kept one reading on.

While everything about this book stretches the imagination, it's still a good read with action to spare.
