Until my fangirl dreams are fulfilled I am going to be content with the second best thing - Clive Cussler's husband/wife treasure-hunting duo on a track to a new adventure. This time Sam and Remi are pursuing the lost ship that might change recorded history of early Latin America. There is zero character development, convenient conflict resolutions, and non-stop action - e ...more
1) The kind of details that abounded in Spartan Gold (see my review) are gone and most of the remaining details are relevant or at least interesting. Since this was the most irritating issue that I found with the previou ...more
The portrayals of the characters were cartoonish and ugly. The Fargos are completely unbelievable as a wealthy couple in their mid-30s.

This is very much an action book. There are long fight sequences, and I was unsure exactly what the Fargos wanted to do (document a nineteenth-century adventurer's life? find the bell? find the ship? send Aztec historical rese ...more
The plot, while interesting, left me with many questions about how much of the Aztec story was true and what was a fabrication. I thought the details around all the research and historical data bogged the pace down in several places. Overall, if someone is interested in ancient Aztec history and/or migrations of indigenous peoples from one part of the world to another far away, this mak ...more

Unlike the first Fargo adventure (which I loved) this novel is really all about a stupid bell and a lost ship. Oh, and some useless Mexicans. The story limps along like a dying seagull and spends 200 pages going nowhere. Where is the exciting globe trotting, the suspense of discovery ...more
Love the history content of these mysteries and the James Bond adventures.
