A rip-roaring Fargo Adventure from the Grand Master of Adventure, Clive Cussler.
In the stormy wastes of Canada's Baffin Island, treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo make an astonishing discovery - a Viking longship frozen in the Arctic ice . . .
But what is more astonishing still is the longship's cargo - a hoard of pre-Colombian artefacts from Mexico. This tantalizing mystery sends the couple to Central America in search of further evidence - and into deadly trouble.
For Sam and Remi's find puts them on the trail of legendary jewel the Eye of Heaven, which also sees other more ruthless - and soon enough murderous - treasure hunters racing to get there first.
It's a chase that takes them through jungles and into ancient temples and secret tombs on a life or death hunt for the solution to a thousand-year-old mystery . . .
Filled with the trademark breakneck pace and bold plotting that he has made his own, The Eye of Heaven proves once again that Clive Cussler is the Grandmaster of Adventure. This brand new instalment in the popular FARGO Adventures series follows the bestselling titles Spartan Gold, Lost Empire, The Kingdom, The Tombs and The Mayan Secrets.

Bestseller Cussler recycles plots and villains from earlier books in the sixth Fargo novel (after 2013's Mayan Secrets), his first with coauthor Blake (Jet). In Spain, treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo run afoul of an old adversary, the thief Janus Benedict, while exploring the wreckage of a 17th-century ship. After beating Janus at his own game, the Fargos are off to the coast of Baffin Island, where they discover a Viking longship frozen in the ice. The ship is carrying perfectly preserved pre-Columbian artifacts, which lead the duo to Mexico to search for the tomb of the legendary Quetzalcoatl. In the tomb, they hope to find the Eye of Heaven, a flawless emerald the size of a grapefruit. Meanwhile, Benedict gets on their trail. Readers can expect the usual Fargo fun, though they should also be prepared for more clich d prose than usual (e.g., " Truer words were never spoken,' Sam agreed").
