Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in a race to find the famed burial site of Attila the Hun in this adventure in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
When an archeologist friend requests their help to excavate a top-secret historical site, the Fargos are intrigued. But they have no idea that their discoveries will set them on a hunt for a prize beyond all imagination.
The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold, jewels, and plunder: a bounty that has never been found.
As they follow a trail throughout Europe, it leads them not to one tomb, but five. The Fargos also find themselves pitted against a thieving group of treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself—and will stop at nothing to achieve his destiny...
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 read
I liked the way the book flowed. Everything in the story seamed plausible nothing seamed far fetched. One of his better books.
Another great book by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry

I read it and it does go as you would expect. I have read the Dirk Pitt novels and this is my first Fargo. I will be reading more as I did enjoy this one.
