Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico, when they come upon a remarkable discovery--the skeleton of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot, and within the pot, a Mayan book, larger than anyone has ever seen. The book contains astonishing information about the Mayans, about their cities, and about mankind itself. The secrets are so powerful that some people would do anything to possess them--as the Fargos are about to find out.
Before their adventure is done, many men and women will die for that book--and Sam and Remi may just be among them.
Thomas Perry is the author of many critically acclaimed novels, including the Edgar Award winning The Butcher's Boy and the national bestsellers Death Benefits and Pursuit.
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
