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.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Mayan Secrets to be better than the print version?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Selma is such a cool, unflappable person, she rarely expresses surprise or excitement and continually predicts what it needed.

Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favourite?


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I enjoyed the storyline, history and geographical travels, it left a feel good factor

Any additional comments?

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.
