Description

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.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jul 01, 2013 – Early in bestseller Cussler’s engaging fifth Fargo novel, this one like 2012’s The Tombs with coauthor Perry, intrepid Sam and Remi Fargo, who have been tagging Great White sharks off the west coast of Mexico, volunteer their services after an earthquake hits the mainland. While packing medical supplies into an isolated mountain village, they stumble across a hidden Mayan tomb that contains a tremendous find: an extremely rare 486-year-old codex. Because of the earthquake chaos, they take it back home to La Jolla, Calif., where Mayan expert David Caine fills them in on the value of their find. Of course, someone else wants the codex, in this case an immensely wealthy amateur archeologist, Sarah Allersby, who first tries to buy it, then later tries to steal it. Eventually, the Fargos begin a chase involving the literal unearthing of several Mayan cities. They narrowly escape many attempts on their lives en route to the thrilling climax.

Customer Reviews

Awful

I think Clive is writing 1% of the books now. What a difference from his heyday (which I loved) and today, where his name is a marketing tool. If I could return it I would. It feels like fraud and is the last "Cussler" book I will buy.

The Mayan Secrets

This shallow romp through the jungle is not up to par for Cussler. Flat characters and not enough history to make it interesting make the book almost boring. I paid for this?

Excellent read. Love Sam and Remi but not so Selma. She's too smart and efficient and makes people like me feel lazy. Could she just take a nap once in a while?
