Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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.

Biography of Cussler, Clive

Clive Cussler was born in Aurora, Illinois on July 15, 1931. He attended Pasadena City College for two years before enlisting in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. After his discharge from the military, he worked first as a copywriter and later as a creative director for two of the nation's most successful advertising agencies.

He began writing in 1965 and published his first novel featuring Dirk Pitt in 1973. His first non-fiction work, The Sea Hunters, was published in 1996. He has written over 50 books including the Dirk Pitt series, the NUMA Files series, Oregon Files series, and the Isaac Bell series. He is the Chairman of NUMA (National Underwater and Marine Agency), a non-profit group which he himself began. He and his crew of marine experts and NUMA volunteers have discovered over 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites.

Review by Library Journal (2012-09-14)

As treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo (The Kingdom) begin a quiet underwater dive off the Louisiana coast, they notice a boat shadowing them. They later receive a call from their archaeologist friend, Dr. Albrecht Fisher, who has discovered an unusual battlefield site in Szeged, Hungary; lying in full battle dress, the dead warriors appear to have been murdered rather than killed in combat. When Albrecht is kidnapped by a crazed Hungarian drug boss who believes himself to be a direct descendant of Attila the Hun, the Fargos travel to Hungary to rescue him.

As they embark on the treasure hunt of their lives through Hungary, Italy, France, Transylvania, Russia, and Kazakhstan, they must deal with thieving treasure hunters, a Russian mob boss, and the Hungarian who always seems to be one step ahead of them.

Verdict: Partnering with the Edgar Award-winning Perry (The Butcher's Boy; Poison Flower), Cussler delivers another adventure of nonstop, nerve-wrack ing suspense.
