The debut of a brand-new, action-packed series from the #1 New York Times bestselling master of ?pure entertainment? ( People ).

Thousands of years ago, the Persian king Xerxes the Great was said to have raided the Treasury at Delphi, carrying away two solid gold pillars as tribute. In 1800, Napoleon Bonaparte and his army stumble across the pillars in the Pennine Alps. Unable to transport them Napoleon creates a map on the labels of twelve bottles of rare wine. And when Napoleon dies, the bottles disappear?

Treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are exploring the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Delaware when they are shocked to discover a World War II German u-boat. Inside, they find a bottle taken from Napoleon's ?lost cellar.' Fascinated, the Fargos set out to find the rest of the collection. But another connoisseur of sorts has been looking for the bottle they've just found. He is Hadeon Bondaruk'a half- Russian, half-Persian millionaire. He claims to be a descendant of King Xerxes himself.

And he wants his treasure back?

This is the first book in the Fargo Adventure Series, and the best one, in my opinion. It inspired me to read all of the others in the series.

Rated 10/10. I've already read a few of Cussler's "Fargo Adventures". Loved this one, too. Looking forward to his other books.
