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 stumbled across the pillars in the Pennine Alps. Unable to transport them, Napoleon created a map on the labels of twelve bottles of rare wine. When he died, the bottles disappeared.

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 someone else 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.

    " There were some sub-plots in this one, which made it enjoyable to read. There were a couple of places where it seem to drag (definitely NOT the norm for a Cussler book), but overall a good read. The one thing I did enjoy was that the plot twisted from the beginning to the end in a slow screw-twist. I'm not going to give any spoilers, but I'd recommend this one who enjoys mysteries. "
