Spartan Gold

Thousands of years ago the Persian king Xerxes the Great was said to have raided the Treasury at Delphi carrying away two solid gold pillars as tribute InNapoleon Bonaparte and his army stumble across the pillars in the Pennine Alps Unable to transport them Napoleon creates a map on the lab. Overall a disappointing outing from Cussler and Blackwood In this novel Remi and Sam Fargo treasure hunters extraordinaire and generous philanthropists find themselves up against the forces of a mysterious Ukranian crime boss who traces his ancestry to Persia and Xerxes the Great Both are after the secrets of the lost cellar of Napoleon and the potential treasure it will lead them toThe major issue here is that there is no threat Remi and Sam repeatedly face down the bad guys and do so in non lethal manners that allow the bad guys to escape and the Fargo s to run free Once or twice it might work but after the third or fourth time it becomes repetitive and the sense of threat and peril to the characters vanishes You know they re going to get out of it okay so there s no tension This echoes through to the end of the book which hits the climax and conclusion inside a handful of pages The mystery that the Fargo s are following reuires putting together obscure clues left behind by Napoleon and his chief confidant an interesting idea but a difficult one that doesn t leave much room for the reader to figure out what is happening along with the characters This lack of involvement combined with transparent motivation for the stereotypical bad guy and muddled logic for involving the main characters leads to a thoroughly unsatisfying readCussler s books are normally better than this Skip this book if you re in the mood for Cussler pick up a NUMAPitt or Isaac Bell book instead

    This is a good summer read in the sense that your brain kind of has to be shut off to enjoy it so I am giving it three stars in the same sense I would give a mindless action movie two thumbs up for entertaining me while keeping me out of the heat in an air conditioned theater Now if your brain isn't shut off while reading this book you may notice some things that might irk you such as spoilers ahead you have been warned The heroes married t

    Spartan Gold is another treasure hunt story along the lines of a Steve Berry novel but with a weaker plot There is of course the bad guys who are on the trail of the same treasure and who are willing to kill to make that happen The book loosely weaves some history into the story including the notion that Napoleo

    Some years ago I read Cussler probably with Dirk Pitt So thought I'd try this with different protagonists The audio version isn't the best one to choose because of all the statistics etc I like Remi and Sam but their scrapes with the bad guys are a little unbelievable Maybe it was because of the reader but the s
