Spartan Gold by Clive Cussler

1. Spartan Gold (2009)

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…

Lost Empire by Clive Cussler

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…

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 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…

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.

Which is exactly what attracts the attention of husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo. How could they resist?

Little do they realise how ruthless this band of robbers are – willing to take Remi and the school’s students hostage. With a snake in the grass in the Fargo team, not to mention hints that this might just be connected to their lost scroll, Sam and Remi have their work cut just staying alive.
