Overview

Sam and Remi Fargo, heroes of Spartan Gold, return in this extraordinary new adventure from the number-one New York Times-bestselling author.

With Spartan Gold, a daring thriller that Publishers Weekly proclaimed "solidly in the Cussler tradition, [and] sure to please new fans and old," Clive Cussler introduced husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo. In their electrifying new adventure, the Fargos make a startling discovery that others would kill to keep hidden...

While scuba diving in Tanzania, Sam and Remi Fargo come upon a relic belonging to a long-lost Confederate ship. An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery—but unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase. Mexico's ruling party, the ultranationalist Mexica Tenochca, is intent on finding that artifact as well, because it contains a secret that could destroy the party utterly...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Cussler, coauthor Blackwood, and Audie Award-winning narrator Scott Brick (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09) are a match made in audio heaven. Brick once again delivers a witty and suspenseful presentation in the authors' second entertaining adventure to feature husband-and-wife globe-trotting treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo, following Spartan Gold (2009), also available from Books on Tape/Penguin Audio. This time, the Fargos make a startling discovery off the coast of Tanzania that could potentially bring down a powerful government and rewrite history. There are enough thrills, action, and hissable villains here to keep listeners utterly hooked. Very highly recommended for all. [The Penguin Audio abridged edition is read by Richard Poe; for a different take on the Putnam hc, see LJ Xpress Reviews 7/30/10; the third title in this series, The Kingdom, is scheduled for a June 2011 release.—Ed.]—Joseph L.

Publishers Weekly
While scuba-diving on the Tanzania coast, Sam and Remi Fargo find a U.S. Civil War ship's bell engraved with Aztec hieroglyphs. Recovering it and discovering its provenance becomes irresistible--especially when they realize someone is desperate to conceal its secrets. From Africa through North America to Asia, the Fargos race to stay ahead of their ruthless pursuers. Narrator Scott Brick continues to keep Cussler's escapades light entertainment; having narrated the previous books in the series, Brick is now part and parcel of the Cussler audiobook fan's continued enjoyment--and essential in ratcheting up the tension and excitement as needed. A Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Aug. 2). (Sept.)
