More About The Mayan Secrets by Clive Cussler; Thomas Perry; Scott BrickOverviewThe outstanding new novel from the #1 New York Times-bestselling grand master of adventure. Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico, when they come upon a remarkable discovery--the skeleton of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot, and within the pot, a Mayan book, larger than anyone has ever seen. 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, many men and women will die for that book--and Sam and Remi may just be among them.

Scott Brick settles easily into his narration of this Cussler/Perry collaboration, starring the Nick and Nora Charles of action and adventure: Sam and Remi Fargo. Rushing to help the victims of an earthquake in rural Mexico, the Fargos stumble across a long-hidden Mayan tomb. Inside they find a mummified corpse and an extremely rare Mayan codex, of which only a handful have survived into modern times. Of course a discovery of such magnitude can’t be kept secret, and it isn’t long until certain interested parties are looking to obtain the ancient text—and by any means necessary. Soon Sam and Remi are jetting around the world, their lives in constant danger, as they endeavor to unlock the secrets held within the pages of the manuscript. Having narrated numerous Cussler novels, Brick is no stranger to the author’s high-tech, high-adventure world. His characterizations are spot-on, while his clear, steady reading keeps the story moving at just the right pace. And his soft, breathy delivery brings a sense of intimacy to the story that pulls listeners in and keeps them hanging on every word. Fans of Cussler and the Fargos will be pleased with this production. A Putnam hardcover. (Sept.)
