In this adventure in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, husband-and-wife treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo must out-pace a self-made millionaire in pursuit of an incredible fortune...
Thousands of years ago, two superpowers of the ancient world went to war, and a treasure of immeasurable value was lost to the shadows of history.
In 1800, while crossing the Pennine Alps with his Grand Reserve Army, Napoleon Bonaparte stumbled across a startling discovery. Unable to transport it, he created an enigmatic map on the labels of twelve bottles of rare wine. When Napoleon died, the bottles disappeared—and the treasure was lost again.
Until now. Treasure-hunting husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are exploring the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Maryland when they are shocked to discover a World War II German U-boat. Inside, they find a bottle taken from Napoleon’s famous “Lost Cellar,” and fascinated, they set out to find the rest of the collection. But another connoisseur of sorts is hunting his own prize, and the Lost Cellar is his key to finding it. That man is Hadeon Bondaruk, a half-Russian, half-Persian millionaire, and the treasure will be his, no matter what.

Classic Clive...good story if you can scan read all the history details that are not pertinent. A good read nonetheless.
Pretty ridiculous, but has some redeeming qualities.
My rating system:
5 stars are reserved for books that totally blow me away. I don’t give too many of these out, since it is almost like giving the book a 100%. It is nearly impossible to write a truly perfect book.
4 stars for books that I would recommend to just about anyone, or, at least, to someone who doesn’t dislike the genre.
3 stars for books that I would only recommend to someone with a strong interest in the particular genre.
2 stars for books that I would be hesitant to recommend to anyone at all, but the book was not a total disaster.
1 star for books that were so terrible or ridiculous for me that I wish I had not wasted time on reading it to begin with.
I enjoyed it
Just finished Spartan Gold and I really liked it. Don't get me wrong, it's not very detailed in a Tom Clancy way nor is it entirely realistic. The Fargos get out of their scrapes a little too easily and don't need to work all that hard to figure out the clues they follow. But I enjoyed the dynamic between them and the story was fun, in a Nick and Nora Charles vein. Good read, very entertaining.
