Adventurers and treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are on a wild-goose chase. Up to their waists in the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Maryland, they're hunting for lost gold. What they find instead is a small Second World War German U-boat.
Inside the submarine they find a body - and a puzzling, incredibly rare bottle of wine. This bottle was one of twelve taken from Napoleon's 'lost cellar'. But it is also a clue to a fabulous, ancient treasure.
One that Hadeon Bondaruk - a half-Russian, half-Persian millionaire - will do anything to get his hands on. For he claims descent from treasure's one-time owner.
It will be his, no matter who stands in his way . . .

Uh, is an action/adventure book supposed to make the reader want to take a nap? I couldn't even make it out of chapter 3! I'm not sure if I was bored with the story, the writing, or Scott Brick's narration. The man could have put some excitement into his voice, couldn't he? But to be fair to Bri...
Not my usual read, but I thought I'd break it up with something different. This is an adventure story about a treasure hunting married couple on their quest to find 12 lost wine bottles from Napoleon's "lost cellar." But believing that these bottles hold the key to finding the secret treasure of Xer...
Książka jest mega przewidywalna, nudna i pozbawiona mocniejszej akcji. Ot taka bzdura, bez ładu i składu. Grant Blackwood nędznie podrabia Cusslera, a ten się jeszcze pod tym podpisuje.
