Scott Brick settles easily into his narration of this Cussler/Perry collaboration, starring the Nick and Nora Charles of action and adventure: Sam and Remi Fargo. Rushing to help the victims of an earthquake in rural Mexico, the Fargos stumble across a long-hidden Mayan tomb. Inside they find a mummified corpse and an extremely rare Mayan codex, of which only a handful have survived into modern times. Of course a discovery of such magnitude can’t be kept secret, and it isn’t long until certain interested parties are looking to obtain the ancient text—and by any means necessary. Soon Sam and Remi are jetting around the world, their lives in constant danger, as they endeavor to unlock the secrets held within the pages of the manuscript. Having narrated numerous Cussler novels, Brick is no stranger to the author’s high-tech, high-adventure world. His characterizations are spot-on, while his clear, steady reading keeps the story moving at just the right pace. And his soft, breathy delivery brings a sense of intimacy to the story that pulls listeners in and keeps them hanging on every word. Fans of Cussler and the Fargos will be pleased with this production. A Putnam hardcover. (Sept.)
