The story wasn’t as strong as it could’ve been because it focused too much on Sam and Remi’s wealth and the trappings of it all. Hopefully the next book about Sam and Remi focuses more on their adventures and a bit less on what they’re wearing and eating.

Synopsis

Sam and Remi Fargo race for treasure—and survival—in this lightning-paced new adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling author Clive Cussler.

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico when they come upon a remarkable discovery—the mummified remainsof a man clutching an ancient sealed pot. Within the pot is a Mayan book 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.

The relatively lightweight adventure ends in a shoot-'em-up after Sam calls on Apache attack helicopter–equipped compatriots from his former CIA-like, top-secret, quasi-military organization. Cussler connoisseurs will approve. Others can enjoy it as a stand-alone adventure.

Perry has written many terrific novels, and it's understandable why Cussler would want to write with him. Their first collaboration was spotty at best, but this time they've found their groove, and the end result is a blast.
