The outstanding new novel from the #1 New York Times - bestselling grand master of adventure.
Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico, when they come upon a remarkable discovery - the skeleton of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot, and within the pot, a Mayan book, larger than anyone has ever seen. The book contains astonishing information about the Mayans, about their cities, and about mankind itself. The secrets are so powerful that some people would do anything to possess them - as the Fargos are about to find out.
Before their adventure is done, many men and women will die for that book - and Sam and Remi may just be among them.

I enjoyed the story edge of the seat gripping narative. Thr narrator waa good. I got to experience the different characters and imagined the various scenes he was describing. It would have been better to have a female narrator for the female characters. Great listen :-)
I really like these Fargo stories by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry, and I always look forward to the next one. They're my guilty pleasure. I compare them to watching a film like National Treasure - you just switch off, relax, and enjoy the show. It can be a bit cheesy at times, but I actually like that about these books - the relationship between Sam and Remi. All in all, these are fun adventures and I always look forward to the next one. Keep 'em coming! Oh, and Scott Brick does a good job at narration. I actually seek out Scott’s other work now too.
The storyline is not excessively complicated or containing too many characters, therefore the audio version is easy to follow and enjoy. I have not read the print version but would anticipate it as equally compelling and easy read.
Selma is such a cool, unflappable person, she rarely expresses surprise or excitement and continually predicts what it needed.
I enjoyed the storyline, history and geographical travels, it left a feel good factor
This is a good read, Fast paced with an interesting historical connection. It takes the reader across quite a bit of the globe and reflects the reality of some lesser travelled countries and the problems their citizens face. The partnership of the Fargo's with a specialist is becoming a trend but one which adds credibility to the story, The specialist in this one and some of the other characters they meet along their journey all help to make this worth reading.
"Best Fargo Book ever!!!"
Exciting, reviting, unpredictible.
You never know what going to happen in the next chapter. The adventure changes and keeps you wanting more.
I really like Brick's performance. The way he reads the book makes you feel you are right with him, seeing the story as though you are there.
When Sam got his friends to help the people of the village.
I hope Custer writes another Fargo book soon.
"Not a mystery/thriller as categorized"
STORY (fiction) - This book was okay, but I never felt compelled to continue listening. I enjoyed the bits of Mayan history and the exploration/excavation portions. Beyond that, the books is about a husband and wife who are trying to keep Mayan artifacts from falling into the wrong hands. There are some scenes that could possibly qualify to some listeners as exciting, but I would definitely not say there is anything mysterious or thrilling about this book.
PERFORMANCE - Scott Brick is awesome as always.
OVERALL - No sex or cursing, with some mild violence. This is Book 5 in the series, but the story stands alone. This is the first Fargo Adventure I've listened to and it would be my last, however I have another one already sitting in my library.
"Wow - What a ride"
From space, our planet is small. When in the forests, our planet is huge. Books and stories like this make me wonder just what secrets our small planet might still hold.
"Better than the other Fargo stories"
This is a much better Fargo book. There's more back story, a better historical launch point and less blather.
I love Sam and Remy Fargo and the adventures they have. There is nothing serious or mind provoking about these books, but rather they are pure entertainment. The Fargos always keep us entertained with their travels and their relationship is something we would all like ... fun, fun, fun, along with their standard of living and adventures. Yes, pure entertainment but an enjoyable read.
"You will not want to miss out on this one ...."
Me and my husband listened to this book together. It is a wonderful read. Full of action and fun. We are loving the Fargo adventures please keep them coming.
"Great story, one of the best of the series."
Yes. This in my opinion is one of the better Clive Clusser series. It is like they are back on track and I like the series and all the differt characters.
Mor like the Oregon Files series. Action and cool story.
Worth the money.
"Best of the series so far"
I'm not a fan of the Sam and Remi Fargo series, but The Mayan Secrets is a superb action and suspense thriller. The quality from book to book is too variable. There are two more books in the series for me to listen to.
"Sam & Remi"
One of the best in series.
Yes. Interesting means of adventure and escape along with political influence.
Yes. One of my favorite narrators.
No. Listened on my free time.
Loved the narration and Scott. has a way with accents that make me laugh. The story was awesome and love Remy & Sam. Clive is wonderful and enjoy. his books so much.
