5.0 out of 5 stars CURLED UP WITH CUSSLER AND BLACKWOOD....., October 3, 2010
.....because Sam and Remi Fargo are off again on another unusual adventure.

This time they take you on a joyride to Tanzania, Zanzibar, Madagascar and into the Indian Ocean. The action is low-key and suspenseful as Sam and Remi try to stay one step ahead of an assassin bent on keeping them from revealing a skeleton in a Mexican President's ancestry.

This is a book with a fun couple, smarmy villains, great locations and a rousingly good story skillfully told. If you want a super old-fashioned adventure story - this will more than satisfy any cravings you might have.

Want a macho male tale with a lot of mayhem. Blackwood does deliver that kind of story in his first three books - The End of Enemies - The Wall of Night - An Echo of War - all starring covert agent Briggs Tanner with new and interesting characters in spectacular settings and exciting stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Beginning of a Beautiful Collaboration....., September 9, 2009
I have always been a fan of Clive Cussler and I became a fan of Grant Blackwood's after reading his first three novels. What a treat to find them together, weaving a cunning story with a complex puzzle.
The story swings you across the globe taking in some spectacular less traveled sites and involving unique characters.
Sam and Remi Fargo grab you and carry you along in their daring quest for what they first believe is a Napoleonic treasure. It was fun, exciting and above all entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed the Fargo's and their exploits in this new series excellently fashioned in the grand storytelling tradition of action-adventure.
More, more of the same please.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard to believe, it is so passe...., December 5, 2004
I was born in 1940. I know the war years. I would think that the five people I would meet are from the 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's.

I guess that a series on tv is coming up. My parents lived through the 2nd world war years. I find these stories trite and boring. I know better ones from the people who were there. The years of the cold war, the Korean war, the Bay of Pigs, etc., how can this book be socially relevant? I did not buy this book.
