Sam and Remi Fargo, heroes of Spartan Gold, return in this extraordinary new adventure from the number-one New York Times- bestselling author. With Spartan Gold, a daring thriller that Publishers Weekly proclaimed "solidly in the Cussler tradition, [and] sure to please new fans and old," Clive Cussler introduced husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo. In their electrifying new adventure, the Fargos make a startling discovery that others would kill to keep hidden....
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.Filled with the dazzling suspense and breathtaking action that are Cussler's trademarks, Lost Empire is a stunning new novel from the grand master of adventure.

Beleivable and Fun
The discovery of intertwining facts and scattered puzzle pieces. I love a mystery that is at the same time tied to history, even if it is a bit of fiction.
Of course, the Fargos!
He has a strong voice and a great voice for separating the characters. These books have at their heart the protagonist and the antagonist seeking the same objective while at the same time being read by a man who can help you despise the villain and cheer for the heroes. He is not as good with the female voices, but you still can tell the difference.
Not as much as the first one. It was funny at times and I did chuckle a few times out loud. This one was a bit more fun and captivating than emotional.
I like archeology and the "Indian Jones" feel is something I enjoy. Of course these books are a bit far fetched when it comes to the type of situations the main characters find themselves, but still it makes for a fun and "FICTIONAL" read. Just enjoy!
