Description
Treasure-hunting team and devoted couple, Sam and Remi Fargo, must protect a book that could help locate lost Mayan cities in this #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico, packing medical supplies in the wake of an earthquake, when they come upon a remarkable discovery--the mummified remains of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot. Within the pot is a Mayan book, a codex larger than any known before.
The book contains astonishing information about the Mayans, 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. Many men and women are going to die for that book.

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
