When I recently was looking for a new book to read, I wanted something that was fast-paced and exciting. I turned to one of my favorite action-adventure writers, Clive Cussler. I’ve enjoyed his Fargo Adventure books in the past, so I found the next one in the series that I hadn’t read – The Eye of Heaven.

As in the previous books in the series, Sam and Remi Fargo, the independently wealthy, adventurous husband and wife duo embark on a globetrotting expedition. In this book, they’re off to find the connection between a Viking ship frozen in the ice near Baffin Island in the Arctic Circle and pre-Columbian Mexican artifacts. As usual, there are plenty of twists and turns along the way and the inevitable villain who will do anything to reach the treasure before the Fargos.

Overall, this was a quick, entertaining read that met my expectations for a good, summer beach read. You can find it on the shelf at the library as well as our virtual shelf on Overdrive.
