The Tombs is the thrilling fourth Fargo adventure by Clive Cussler.
It's a prize beyond imagination.
When an archaeologist excavating a top secret historical site realizes the magnitude of his discovery he requests help from treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo. And in rushing to join him, the husband and wife team are thrown into their most daring quest to date.
The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder, a bounty that has never been found.
But as Sam and Remi piece together the puzzle, the trail takes them through Hungary, Italy, France, Russia, and Kazakhstan and not to a single tomb, but five. And into the path of deadly danger. They are not the only ones hunting for the High King's riches.
The Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of amateur treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself . . . and will stop at nothing to claim the tombs'riches as his own.
Packed with heart-pounding action and boundless invention, The Tombs is an exceptional thriller from the grand master of adventure. The Tombs is the fourth of Clive Cussler's Fargo Adventures, and follows Lost Empire and The Kingdom.
Praise for Clive Cussler:
'The guy I read' Tom Clancy
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.

Very good book enjoyed it and would recommend.
Very compelling and difficult to put down.
Buy something else..!
The lead characters here are not believable nor credible...think "Hart to Hart"; plot detail is so unlikely and weak that the couple of amateur treasure hunters can fight their way in to and out of a compound to retrieve a kidnap victim using a dog and 'kill' 6 heavily armed mafia gangsters, ..... This book feels like it has been written not by Cussler but more that his brand has been associated with a weak script which must generate guaranteed sales? Not the typical Cussler - disappointed
