Husband-and-wife treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo run afoul of a dictator who uses false facts about Aztec history to further his claim to power in this #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
While scuba diving in Tanzania, Sam and Remi Fargo come upon a relic belonging to a long-lost Confederate ship. An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery—but unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase. Mexico’s ruling party, the ultranationalist Mexica Tenochca, is intent on finding that artifact as well, because it contains a secret that could destroy the party utterly.
Through Tanzania and Zanzibar, into the rainforests of Madagascar, and across the Indian Ocean to Indonesia and the legendary site of the 1883 Krakatoa explosion, the Fargos and their ruthless opponents pursue the hunt—but only one can win. And the penalty for failure is death.

I've never read Cussler before. I liked the historical fiction in the book, but the author could have done a better job explaining why the Mexican govt didn't want the real history of the Aztecs out. Also, the author could have added a part about how the Aztecs got from Indonesia to the Americas....maybe have another artifact that the Fargos had to find in central America to complete the puzzle. Good story overall.
