Adventurers Sam and Remi Fargo hopscotch around the world seeking a treasure hidden by Xerxes I the Persian King who invaded Greece 480 B.C.E. Napoleon Bonaparte found the treasure. and put together a string of clues, that he hoped his son, Napoleon II, would follow, but Napoleon Jr. for whatever reason didn’t follow through.
It’s now modern times and besides the Fargos, a Russian mobster searches for the treasure. The Fargos could get killed, and not just because they visit some dangerous places.
This is a smart adventure. The clues are clever and putting them together requires a vast knowledge of history.
The downside of this book is that some transitions - those from one location to the other and from one danger to another - tend to be boring. The story is sometimes more travel brochure than adventure story.

I'm a big fan of Cussler books. This series is a different direction than most of his other series. What's different?

- It's a husband and wife team and not a government backed team or organization.
- The villains are not bent on ruling/destroying the world. It's much less grandiose.
- It focuses so much on the treasure hunting. Cussler's other series had bits of history and treasure thrown in, but as a sidestory. Now it's THE story.
- There's a back-story to the main characters, but basically, it entertains a question everyone in the world asks themselves at one point: What would you do if money was not an issue?

What's the same?

- It's a page-turner and a great story. Firefights! Explosions! Exploration! Ancient Ruins! Treasure! Bad guys! Travel!
- The characters have fairly predictable personalities and are not too deeply developed, but developed enough to make a connection.
- It's a great book to have for a long trip where you want some entertainment and don't want to work to hard to get into the story.
- This particular story has everything thrown in from Persians and Spartans (duh), to Napoleon and Nazis. Oh, there's also a particularly psychotic villain who has a lot of money and also wants the treasure. BOOM! The story is born and the action begins.

This book will be fun for everyone to read. If you're already a fan of Cussler books, this will be just as good.

Clive Cussler is recognized as one of the leading authors in adventure fiction, and in "Spartan Gold", he introduces two new characters: Sam and Remi Fargo.

The book starts out in the time of Napoleon. While Napoleon and his army were crossing the Alps, he stumbled upon an amazing discovery. Unable to transport it, he set about devising a unique mapping system on twelve bottles of rare wine. Each bottle contained a unique riddle which would lead to the location of the next, and so on. Upon Napoleon's death, the bottles disappeared...Until now.

Fast-forward to present-day. Remi and Sam are hunting for treasure in the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Maryland when they come across the wreckage of a World War II era German midget submarine. Located inside the submarine is one of the bottles of wine. Immediately, Remi and Sam set off in search of the remaining bottles, but, unknown to them, they are not the only ones searching.

On the other side of the world, Hadeon Bondaruk, a kingpin in the Russian mafia, is also searching for Napoleon's "Lost Cellar". What is about to begin is a world-wide chase that will pit the Fargos against Bondaruk and his henchmen. There are chases, shoot-em-ups, and riddles to solve thrown in as well.

I've read other books by Clive Cussler, and I have enjoyed them all. "Spartan Gold" is full of action and intrigue, and Cussler's new duo of Sam and Remi Fargo are easy to like and root for. Cussler has done a good job of developing these new characters, and I enjoyed the thrilling nature of the story. I did find the story to slow down a little in some parts, but these minor lapses do nothing to take away from the overall story.

The Fargos have instantly become favorites of mine, and I'm looking forward to reading their next adventure, "Lost Empire".

THIS WAS MY FIRST FARGO NOVEL BY CLIVE CUSSLER AND GRANT BLACKWOOD AND THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A NAZI NOVEL,
BUT WHAT SURPRISE. IT WAS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TYPE OF STORY. WITH TWO MATCHED CENTRAL CHARACTERS SAM AND REMI FARGO TREASURE HUNTERS. ONE AN ENGINEER (MCGARVER) AND OTHER AN ARCHEOLOGY SPECIALIST.
THE STORY STARTS WHEN FARGOS ARE ON ANOTHER TREASURE HUNT WHEN THEY SPOT A NAZI MINI SUBMARINE FROM THERE
THE STORY LINE TURNS TO NAPLOANE BONPARTE AND TWELVE BOTTLES OF WINE WITH A RIDDLE ON LABEL AND BUG ON THE BOTTOM OF WINE BOTTLE. THE VILLIAN IS RUDILIOUS AND A STEP BEHIND THE FARGOS ALL THROUGH OUT THE STORY.
FIGURE OUT THE RIDDLES AND FIND A BUG MARKING THE SPOT AND YOU HAVE A WORTHY CLIVE CUSSLER ADVENTURE.

Another enjoyable round the world treasure hunt with the Fargos. But this one seemed laced with more trivia about their surroundings than previous Cussler books. I found myself skimming several paragraphs, and then pages, of detail that didn't further the plot so I could stay with the story.

Some readers like that level of detail. If you want a description of each course of every meal the hero and heroine eat, this is the book for you. But if you're one of those "less is better" people, you might want to pass up Spartan Gold. .

Love Clive Cussler! Go on Good Reads and read at least the first dozen in order. Once he started writing with others the books lost a bit of their zest but are still good and do no follow in any order. If I want an escape, I read Clyde Cussler!

Great read. I will be following Remi and Sam through the series. I like that Hart to Hart style of interaction between husband and wife. Clive has a fan in me. -Daniel Lance Wright, AuthorAnnie's World 2: New BeginningsAnnie's World 2: New Beginnings
