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 himselfand will stop at nothing to achieve his destiny
Terribly written. Characters without any development or depth. A plot that simply moves on mechanically to each next stage. So disappointing as I am a big fan of Thomas Perry's writing.
The Tombs was a nail biting, page turner. Loved the descriptions of the countries they traveled to and the treasures found. I would highly recommend this to mystery lovers.
Cussler (and whoever helps him write) never fails to entertain, amuse and excite! Don't miss this one.
