The Eye of Heaven

Fargo Adventures #6




Husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo try to unravel a thousand-year-old mystery in the Arctic

In the stormy wastes of Canada's Baffin Island, treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo make an astonishing discovery - a Viking longship frozen in the Arctic ice . . .

But what is more astonishing still is the longship's cargo - a hoard of pre-Colombian artefacts from Mexico. This tantalizing mystery sends the couple to Central America in search of further evidence - and into deadly trouble.

For Sam and Remi's find puts them on the trail of legendary jewel the Eye of Heaven, which also sees other more ruthless - and soon enough murderous - treasure hunters racing to get there first.

It's a chase that takes them through jungles and into ancient temples and secret tombs on a life or death hunt for the solution to a thousand-year-old mystery . . .
