The outstanding new Sam and Remi Fargo adventure from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
An 800-year-old treasure . . . an ancient cypher wheel . . . a brutal murder . . . and a man who will stop at nothing to claim what he considers rightfully his. Husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo have gone on impossible missions before and faced many perils, but never have they faced an adversary as determined as the one before them now. The battle will take them halfway around the world, and at its end will be either one of the most glorious finds in history—or certain death.
Terrific Tuesday Post from 09/13/2016
Now that I have more time to read what I want to; I am breaking out the Terrific Tuesdays books that I had previously bought. Yes, I actually buy all my Terrific Tuesday book posts, hmmm now getting time to read them is a bit more of a challenge. I have an entire bookshelf full of my TT books to read, just staring at me as I write my reviews.
The husband and wife team of Sam and Remi Fargo are just trying to take a vacation and Remi being the sweet wife that she is decides to try and find a rare but not necessarily valuable book to add to Sam’s collection. Well doesn’t that decision just lead them down a rabbit hole as the book in question supposedly leads to a treasure dating back to the days of Robin Hood. That chase will lead them all across the world from the United States to Brazil, Jamaica and even in England.
I love that the writers added elements of treasure stories that are widely known by mostly everyone. It made the overall story very engaging and realistic. They even mentioned the mystery of Oak Island. There has been so much pondering as to whether or not there is or was ever a treasure on Oak Island (including a TV show) so I enjoyed that they used that in this novel. How fantastic that they could pull a current and real treasure hunter mystery into this book. Yes! Fantastic!
Just an entertaining and fun read that had a great pace. The supporting characters were remarkable, quirky and added to the overall story. The mystery element was quite intriguing and overall I really enjoyed this book as always. I highly recommend!
