Cussler’s husband-and-wife globetrotting adventurers Sam and Remi Fargo return in this fifth novel in the series. Cowritten (like the previous installment, The Tombs, 2012) by acclaimed mystery novelist Thomas Perry, the book is a fast-paced story that revolves around a priceless artifact—a Mayan codex, a book that could shed light on a vanished culture. Of course—and this will come as no surprise to Cussler’s regular readers—various people will stop at nothing to possess the artifact the Fargos have unearthed. Accusations of overreliance on formula are never entirely unwarranted with Cussler, but when the format and story are this much fun, readers won’t mind. Sam and Remi are a likable pair of heroes, and the villains are appropriately villainous (but without taking that extra step into comic-book supervillainy). After the exciting ride that was The Tombs, this new book is a clear indication that the Fargo series, as long as Perry stays involved, will provide fine entertainment for adventure fans. --David Pitt
Praise for The Mayan Secrets
“After the exciting ride that was The Tombs, this new book is a clear indication that the Fargo series will provide fine entertainment for adventure fans.”—Booklist
Praise for The Tombs
“Sami and Remi Fargo prove they can wield automatic weapons as well as they can metal detectors in the fun fourth Fargo novel. This adventure series stands as one of the crown jewels in the Cussler empire.”—Publishers Weekly
“The fourth Fargo adventure is the best of the series so far. Danger abounds, of course, but it’s the characters who sell the story. Sami and Remi Fargo, the husband and wife treasure hunters and globe-trotting adventurers, are likable and gutsy. The story moves at a brisk clip, leaping from location to location, with an assortment of colorful villains. This is one his fans won’t want to miss.”—Booklist
“Cussler and Perry take readers on a trip of discovery, thwarted politics, murder and comic relief. The Tombs is a real adventure filled with bits of personal interaction and intimacy. This latest installment should enhance the Fargo adventure series through good storytelling enriched with a rich historical overview.”—Bookreporter.com
