An adventure yarn of the tallest order, which although staged in modern times has a well-aged feel to it, starring husband-and-wife treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo who provide a throwback touch, reminiscent of Nick and Nora Charles. Millionaire do-gooders who turn all the profits from their archeological finds over to charity, but are more than familiar with weaponry and martial arts, too.
The novel whisks the reader all over the world with this jet-set couple, beginning with their vacation in San Francisco, where the purchase of an old pirate manuscript puts them into a dangerous battle with a rival treasure hunter, Charles Avery, who will stop at nothing to recover lost family treasure. From Arizona on to Jamaica and finally to England the Fargo’s find themselves beaten to the end result at every turn.
With all their moves scuppered before they get started, the Fargo’s surmise that one of their trusted team members is suspect, but who and why? Caught up in the legend of Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest the intrepid couple tiptoe through long lost caves and tunnels and you’ll accompany them, holding your breath alongside.
This is the first novel that these two awesome scribes have collaborated on and I can’t wait to see what adventures they build for us in the future.
