Sam and Remi Fargo, multimillionaire treasure hunters, prove they can wield automatic weapons as well as they can metal detectors in the fun fourth Fargo novel (after 2011's The Kingdom) from bestseller Cussler and new collaborator Perry. A German archeologist friend, Albrecht Fischer, calls on the couple for help in excavating an ancient battlefield he's discovered in Hungary. A lucky find on one of the dead soldiers buried in the battlefield leads to a succession of five treasure troves hidden by Attila the Hun, culminating in his legendary tomb. Also searching for the tomb and treasure is greedy Arpad Bako, a wealthy businessman who runs a medical factory and considers himself a direct descendent of Attila the Hun. The many treasures shift back and forth between Bako and the Fargos while other villains seek to stop Sam and Remi. This adventure series stands as one of the crown jewels in the Cussler empire.

As treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo (The Kingdom) begin a quiet underwater dive off the Louisiana coast, they notice a boat shadowing them. They later receive a call from their archaeologist friend, Dr. Albrecht Fisher, who has discovered an unusual battlefield site in Szeged, Hungary; lying in full battle dress, the dead warriors appear to have been murdered rather than killed in combat. When Albrecht is kidnapped by a crazed Hungarian drug boss who believes himself to be a direct descendant of Attila the Hun, the Fargos travel to Hungary to rescue him. As they embark on the treasure hunt of their lives through Hungary, Italy, France, Transylvania, Russia, and Kazakhstan, they must deal with thieving treasure hunters, a Russian mob boss, and the Hungarian who always seems to be one step ahead of them. Verdict Partnering with the Edgar Award-winning Perry (The Butcher's Boy; Poison Flower), Cussler delivers another adventure of nonstop, nerve-wracking suspense.-Cynde Suite, Bartow Cty. Lib.
