Wrath of Poseidon opening line: The steep acropolis of Sardis loomed against the night sky, while far below at the city’s edge, flames consumed the reed-thatched buildings.
Sam Fargo has given up his job working for DARPA. He wants to work on his own project, but needs financing for it. And then along comes Remi and he promises her that if she looks for the North Star, that is where he will be. So, imagine his surprise when she calls a few weeks later from Greece and mentions the north star. Does she need his help, and is it worth going there and missing his investor meeting? Sam follows his instinct and so begins the Fargo’s first adventure.
Wrath of Poseidon
The legend of Croesus’s riches has echoed across millennia. Stolen and hidden by pirates after the Persian king’s defeat in 546 BC, his staggering wealth was thought to be lost to history ….
Treasure-hunters Sam and Remi Fargo know it’s out there somewhere. A decade after their search for the king’s gold first brought them together, the husband and wife team return to Greece to uncover the hoard that has always eluded them.
But they soon learn they’re not the only ones looking. The reappearance of a vengeful and ruthless rival forces them into a deadly race against time to find the treasure. And until it’s found no one is safe. Least of all Sam and Remi …
I have enjoyed each and every one of the Fargo books I have read. Mostly because they start with an historical account which I find so interesting. This one was excellent and interesting.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Random House South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
