A Sam and Remi Fargo Adventure Series, Book 12
Borrow Borrow Borrow
Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo come up against an old enemy while searching for a treasure that has been lost for centuries in this exciting adventure in the bestselling series by the Clive Cussler, Grand Master of Adventure.
Ten years ago, a chance meeting at the Lighthouse Café in Redondo Beach led Sam Fargo and Remi Longstreet on the adventure of a lifetime, hunting the legendary riches stolen from the Persian King Croesus in 546 B.C. But they weren't the only ones. Someone else is after the gold, and he's willing to kill anyone who gets in his way.
When Sam and Remi run afoul of a criminal drug-running operation, their hopes of finding the treasure are dashed. But with Sam's ingenuity and Remi's determination, they survive their confrontation with the drug runners, and manage to send one of the key players to prison. Though the cache of gold is never found, life goes on. Sam and Remi marry—and years later return to Greece to find the one treasure that got away.
Time becomes their enemy when the kingpin they helped send to prison over a decade ago is released—and he has two goals in mind. Find the legendary hoard of King Croesus, and kill Sam and Remi Fargo. The Fargos know that as long as this gold is out there, no one is safe. They return to Greece for a final showdown—and one last chance to find that elusive treasure.

Excerpts-
  • From the book Prologue I
     
     
    Sardis, Persian Empire,
    546 BC  
          
    The steep Acropolis of Sardis loomed against the night sky, while, far-below at the city’s edge, flames consumed the reed-thatched buildings. General Mazares, dispatched by King Cyrus II of Persia the moment he’d learned of the revolt, had ridden through the night, leading a unit of armed heavy cavalry. According to the imperial messenger, the Ionian mercenaries were set to spark the revolt at dawn.
    Apparently, they’d gotten an early start.
    “Fools,” Artaban, his lieutenant, called out over the sound of hooves as the horses neared the gates. A wooden building exploded near the gold-refining works. “Do they not realize that Cyrus will crush them?”
    “There is nothing left to crush,” Mazares shouted.  “I’m surprised that there’s anything left to burn.”
    It was the second time they’d marched upon Sardis. The first was when King Cyrus’ army had broken the siege of the wealthy Lydian capital, captured its king, Croesus, then plundered his vast treasury. If not for this revolt, Mazares would be accompanying the bulk of Croesus’s treasure back to Ekbatana.
    “The quicker we quell this rebellion, the sooner we get home.” He eyed the flames, swirling from several structures just outside the gates.
    As they neared the inferno, Mazares realized the purpose of the fires. He and his horsemen were almost blinded. Waiting for them the insurgents, with their backs to the blaze, had the advantage. Within moments, Cyrus’s cavalry was attacked by a shadow army of soldiers armed with spears, axes, and swords.
         Dividing his men into two flanks, Mazares led the left; Artaban led the right. The deafening clash of metal rang through the night as his horsemen, blinded by the flames, battled the unseen enemy. Mazares thrust at an armed silhouette. His blade struck something solid. The rebel’s shield. Shouting, Mazares ordered his right flank to close in, while Artaban did the same with the left, sweeping in behind the rebels, who suddenly found themselves sandwiched between both flanks. Spurring his horse to rear, Mazares blocked the thrust of a spear, and drove his blade into his opponent’s chest, piercing through the man’s inadequate armor.
    Pulling his sword free, he wheeled his mount to the right, then swung at the next man, felling him as well.
    Within minutes, it was over. The insurrectionists fled. The flames of the wooden structures, no longer being fed, began to die, as a smoky dawn in the eastern sky burned along with the embers of the failed revolt.
    Mazares surveyed the scattering of bodies—none of them his men. The speed with which they put down the insurrection troubled him as he met up with his second in command. “Tell me, Artaban. Does it not seem suspiciously convenient that the fire was confined to the outer wall? And that the skirmishers dissipated, almost the moment we rode in?”
    “And why wouldn’t they?” Artaban nodded back at their troops who were awaiting further orders. “If you were a group of outnumbered mercenaries and you beheld Cyrus’ immortal cavalry charging…?”
    Immortal, they were not. But the ease with which they won this so-called battle would certainly add to their legend.
    It did not, however, lessen Mazares’ concern.
    It was something more than the desertion of the city gates. His unease grew as he led a contingent of horsemen into the city.

    July 6, 2020
    Early in bestseller Cussler’s posthumous 12th Sam and Remi Fargo adventure (after 2019’s The Oracle, also coauthored with Burcell), an intriguing origin story, treasure hunters Sam and Remi meet with St. Julien Perlmutter, “a world authority on maritime history,” concerning the one treasure they never found, a hoard of gold stolen from King Cyrus in 546 BCE. Sam tells Perlmutter how he met Remi Longstreet 10 years earlier at a café in Hermosa Beach, Calif. The attraction was mutual, and, after getting to know each other better, Sam and Remi decided to go to the Greek island of Fourni to search for the treasure trove known as Poseidon’s Trident. Also hunting the treasure was wealthy Greek businessman Adrian Kyril, who would stop at nothing to find the gold. Flashbacks detail Sam and Remi’s exciting battle to thwart Kyril. In the present, events make it imperative that the Fargos return to Fourni to take up the Poseidon’s Trident mystery once again. Readers will keep turning the pages to see what happens next. Series fans will hope Cussler’s recent death won’t mean the end of this popular series. Agent: Peter Lampack, Peter Lampack Agency.
