An ancient treasure stolen by Xerxes the Great . . .
Discovered by Napoleon Bonaparte . . .
The clues to its hidden location lost until now . . .
Adventurers and treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are on a wild-goose chase. Up to their waists in the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Maryland, they're hunting for lost gold. What they find instead is a small Second World War German U-boat.
Inside the submarine they find a body - and a puzzling, incredibly rare bottle of wine. This bottle was one of twelve taken from Napoleon's 'lost cellar'. But it is also a clue to a fabulous, ancient treasure.
One that Hadeon Bondaruk - a half-Russian, half-Persian millionaire - will do anything to get his hands on. For he claims descent from treasure's one-time owner.
It will be his, no matter who stands in his way . . .
Some treasures are best left buried . . .
Scuba diving off the Tanzanian coast, husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team, Sam and Remi Fargo discover a huge ship's bell, covered in cryptic carvings. But as they struggle to first recover the bell and then decode its clues, they find they are not alone in wanting to discover its secrets.
When news of the find is publicised, Mexican President Quauhtli Garza is forced to act. He knows that this bell comes from a former Confederate ship that sank off the African coast and he fears that the discovery of a missing piece of a Quetzalcoatl statuette, which was aboard the ship, will undermine his plans for Mexico's future.
With Garza determined to stop the Fargos investigation at all costs, the couple are drawn into a deadly conspiracy that connects the 1883 Krakatoa explosion with an attempt to resurrect the fallen Aztec empire ...
Whether it's lost treasure or missing persons, the Fargos find themselves in a heap of trouble every time . . .
When Texas oil baron Charlie King contacts Sam and Remi Fargo he has an unusual request. He hired an investigator - and good friend of the pair - to locate his missing father in the Far East. But now the investigator has vanished. Would Sam and Remi be willing to look for them both?
Though something about the request doesn't quite add up, Sam and Remi agree to help out.
It's a journey that takes the Fargos to Tibet, Nepal, Bulgaria, India, and China. They get mixed up with black-market fossils, a centuries-old puzzle chest, the ancient Nepali kingdom of Mustang, a balloon aircraft from a century before its time . . . and an extraordinary skeleton that might turn the history of human evolution on its head. Oh, and not a few unfriendly people with guns and itchy trigger fingers . . .
When an archaeologist excavating a top secret historical site realizes the magnitude of his discovery he requests help from treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo. And in rushing to join him, the husband and wife team are thrown into their most daring quest to date.
The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder, a bounty that has never been found.
But as Sam and Remi piece together the puzzle, the trail takes them through Hungary, Italy, France, Russia, and Kazakhstan and not to a single tomb, but five. And into the path of deadly danger. They are not the only ones hunting for the High King's riches.
The Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of amateur treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself . . . and will stop at nothing to claim the tombs'riches as his own.
The Mayan Secrets
Mexico, present day: a revelation of precious knowledge from the past has the power to change the course of humanity's future.
Treasure-hunting husband and wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Central America when they come upon a remarkable discovery - the skeleton of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot. Inside the pot is a well-preserved Mayan book, larger than any previously found by archaeologists.
The book contains astonishing information about the Mayans, about their cities, and about mankind itself. The secrets are so powerful that some people would do anything to possess them - as the Fargos are about to find out.
Before their adventure is done, men and women will die for the riches contained in the ancient book - and it's just possible that Sam and Remi may be among them . . .
The Eye of Heaven
In the stormy wastes of Canada's Baffin Island, treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo make an astonishing discovery - a Viking longship frozen in the Arctic ice . . .
But what is more astonishing still is the longship's cargo - a hoard of pre-Colombian artefacts from Mexico. This tantalizing mystery sends the couple to Central America in search of further evidence - and into deadly trouble.
For Sam and Remi's find puts them on the trail of legendary jewel the Eye of Heaven, which also sees other more ruthless - and soon enough murderous - treasure hunters racing to get there first.
It's a chase that takes them through jungles and into ancient temples and secret tombs on a life or death hunt for the solution to a thousand-year-old mystery . . .
The Solomon Curse
BENEATH THE WAVES A SECRET LIES
In the clear blue waters of the Solomon Islands the ruins of an ancient city have lain undisturbed for hundreds of years - until now.
GUARDED BY AN ANCIENT CURSE
Legend - even recent history - tells of a terrible fate befalling anyone foolish enough to venture near. Visitors do not return alive.
OR SOMETHING MORE DEADLY?
But when treasure-hunting team Remi and Sam Fargo dive to investigate the city, they find more than ancient monuments and lost artefacts.
Because someone is using the legends to hide their own dark and grisly secret. And the closer Remi and Sam get to discovering the truth, the closer they come to being the curse's next victims . . .
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.
The Romanov Ransom
The discovery of a long-lost airliner . . .
A modern-day kidnapping . . .
And the return of the most terrifying evil the world has ever seen.
When a kidnapping captures the attention of treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo, they find themselves on the trail of the legendary Romanov Ransom - a Russian fortune stolen by the Nazis during World War II.
Hunting a neo-Nazi faction across Europe, North Africa and South America is their greatest quest yet. They must prevent the rise of a Fourth Reich, or witness the resurgence of the greatest evil of the modern world.
The Grey Ghost
Does a stolen antique car hold the clue to a secret fortune?
Husband and wife treasure-hunting team Remi and Sam Fargo head to England to help Viscount Albert Payton recover a fortune that was lost a hundred years ago - along with the family's good name.
It is believed this treasure was linked to the theft of a Rolls-Royce prototype called the Grey Ghost, which legendary detective Isaac Bell helped to recover, while the treasure itself remained missing.
But then the Grey Ghost is stolen once again - this time from right under the noses of the investigating Fargos.
And the Viscount vanishes too.
It's up to Remi and Sam to solve the mystery, but now their lives are in serious danger . . .
