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...

I found it difficult to get into and extremely formulaic. Cussler seems to have run out of new material

The Tombs --- by Clive Cussler. As usual, Cussler delivers a novel with lots of pow and bam. The hunt is on for the tombs and treasures of Attila the Hun. The action takes us across Europe, into Russia and finally back home to the US of A. This one, like his others just begs to be made into an action flick. A great book of the action and violence genre that Cussler is so good at.

I have always enjoyed reading Cusslers books. I couldn't get into this one. Read about 100 pages and had to put it down. I am very disappointed.

A switch in co-authors is for the best as the main characters, Sam and Remi Fargo, aren't as sappy as in previous books in this series. Good action yarn without a lot of the sanctimony of previous efforts.

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. {Amazon.com}
