was back at home This one took place not only in Tunisia but Nigeria They were checking up on not only an archaeological dig they were helping sponsor and to investigate discrepancies which appeared in the ledgers but also checking on the school for girls that they were building Boko Haram was mentioned but they were not the villains in the piece It was everyday, ordinary smugglers, thieves, antiquity stealing thugs Oh and kidnappers in order to get large ransoms from their victims.The tie in with the historic scenario literally wasn t until the last couple of chapters which was good since there was so much action going on.As I said, I finally enjoyed the cast of the Fargo Adventures in this one I have been reading Cussler books for perhaps longer than I care to admit the first one I read when I was younger was Raise the Titanic shortly after it was released It s been an enjoyable ride over the years meeting the new characters and enjoying the collaboration between Cussler
