Lost Empire by Clive Cussler with Grant Blackwood was an Audible read. It was masterfully narrated by Scott Brick. It is the second installment in the Fargo Adventure series. It is firmly in the action/thriller subgenre.
Sam and Remy are once again drawn into a worldwide mystery when they stumble across a mysterious sunken bell while scuba diving in Tanzania. What begins as an intriguing mystery quickly turns into a ancient mystery infused with modern day politics. From the shores of Tanzania, Sam and Remy quickly find themselves trying to solve a mystery from the US Civil War and the origins of the Aztecs.
It’s another completely fantastical adventure that explores history with a twist. Do I think the conclusions the series draw at the end of each adventure is possible? Nope, but that doesn’t detract one bit from the overall enjoyment of the story.
Five out of five stars for a completely enjoyable story. Sam and Remy would be delightful drinking companions, as would there entire research staff.
