I found the writing to be somewhat simplistic--a bit like a poor hamburger with lots of relish and little meat. The plot left me wanting more. The lead characters went from place to place and beat the bad guys at their own game. Even their bad days were good days. There was little or no suspense until the very end of the book, and given everything that had gone before, the ending was exactly what I expected. I haven't read any of the other books in this series, but it this is typical, I won't be reading them. ( )

Remi and Sam Fargo, treasure hunters extraordinaire, get involved in the hunt for Attila the Hun's treasures and burial place. The trail leads them all over Europe and picks up fierce competition along the way. Join Remi and Sam on their adventure for a lot of laughs, some delightful terror and a big helping of adventure.

In many treasure hunting novels, we have to ever-so-slightly push our sense of reality off to the side, so we can enjoy the adventure. Unfortunately, I couldn't push this one far enough to make it bearable. ( )

Cussler has always asked you to suspend belief -- I abandoned this book because it was so far out there it was both laughable and pitiful,

Imagine this -- a field is archeologically excavated such that in a few days 400 bows are retrieved from 450 A.D, yeah right. Then a few days later we take a car ride out to a winery field -- wave a metal detector around for a couple hours and find an iron tomb 5 feet underground that they are able to dig down to (and then escape from after someone fills in the hole) all in one night.

This should be in the fantasy rather than fiction section.

I'll never read another Cussler book. ( )

Book description
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.
