The Tombs opening line: The barbarian equipment was enormous, a great city that moved from place to place at whim of its unquestioned leader, the High King.
I love historical dramas and this one is a fantastic read. We follow the path of the Fargo’s, a wealthy American couple, as they trace the treasure tombs of Attila the Hun. Not only is the book a real page turner, it is full of interesting facts. I am so determined to take a trip back to Rome to explore the catacombs after reading this book.
Written together with Thomas Perry, Clive Cussler has once again given me a perfect read. I can highly recommend that you buy this book, and the others in the Fargo Adventure series, which I will be on the lookout for.
