North Africa, 533 A.D.
The last Vandal ruler faces the invading Byzantines.
An oracle predicts defeat unless a sacred scroll is found . . .
When an archaeological dig in Tunisia funded by Sam and Remi Fargo uncovers clues pointing to the whereabouts of a lost ancient scroll, the treasure hunting team can't wait to discover the truth.
But it looks like they'll have to - the Nigerian school they fund has been robbed and they need to find out what happened.
Little do they realise how ruthless this band of robbers are - willing to take Remi and the school's students hostage. With a snake in the grass in the Fargo team, not to mention hints that this might just be connected to their lost scroll, Sam and Remi have their work cut just staying alive.
But when the Fargos know there's treasure waiting to be discovered, nothing will stop them . . .

In the prologue of bestseller Cussler's exceptional 11th Sam and Remi Fargo adventure (after 2018's The Gray Ghost, also coauthored with Burcell), Gelimer, the king of the Vandals, consults an oracle in a North African town in 533 C.E. Gelimer must retrieve a stolen scroll and return it to its rightful owner if his kingdom is to survive. The kingdom falls before he can find the scroll, whose location remains a mystery until the present day, when some clues turn up in an archaeological dig sponsored by Sam and Remi's foundation. Meanwhile, the theft of a shipment of supplies to the girls' school the Fargos support in Nigeria prompts the couple to travel from California to Africa to deliver replacement supplies. The subsequent kidnapping of Remi and some of the school girls by robbers appears to be related to the missing scroll. Witty dialogue, loads of detail about the local culture and food, and plenty of red herrings will delight Cussler fans. This entry may be the best yet in the series.
