This one isn't a good Fargo adventure.
on September 6, 2013
Sam and Remi Fargo find, by accident after an earthquake in So. America, an unknown Mayan Codex that has unknown Mayan sites. The codex is stolen by a self centered socialite who wants to find the sites for her own glorification and spotlight in the public. Sam and Remi race against her and her gun happy minions to find the sites first. The plot is not new, the action is not surprising or suspenseful, the attempts at humor fall flat, and the ending is so predictable. This collaboration of Cussler and Thomas Perry does not work. The writing is more like a first year grad student that a seasoned writer. Cussler books have been going downhill since he started collaborating with other authors (like Patterson's has). This is the last Cussler book I will buy. Don't bother with this one!
