Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly Audio
Husband-and-wife treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are back for another action-packed adventure in this third book in the Fargo Adventure series from Cussler and Blackwood. An eccentric Texas billionaire brings the couple to Nepal and the Himalayan Mountains to search for a missing employee, but clues reveal their employer's goal is something altogether more avaricious. Thus begins a dangerous quest for fabled treasure. Like all Cussler thrillers, there are the requisite beautiful, brilliant, wealthy, athletic, expert protagonists, and the greedy, evil, cruel, conniving foes—and Cussler fans will absolutely love it. Scott Brick is as proficient as ever, enthralling listeners with his precise, dramatic narration. Cussler stories always begin with a fascinating mix of history, science, fact, and fiction, and Brick delivers these by creating believable accents and speech patterns for a wide variety of characters. Between the writing and the narrator's top-notch performance, this audiobook is exactly what listeners have come to expect from the series, and that makes it rewarding. A Putnam hardcover. (June)
Publishers Weekly
In Cussler and Blackwood's rousing third adventure featuring treasure hunters extraordinaire Sam and Remi Fargo (after Lost Empire), the couple get on the trail of a sacred object, the Theurang, "said to have been a life-sized statue of a man-like creature or... the skeleton of the creature itself." Or maybe it's a chest holding the creature's bones. Reclusive wealthy entrepreneur Charles King (aka "King Charlie") is also searching for this artifact. King's girlfriend, Zhilan Hsu, and their grown children, Russell and Marjorie, will stop at nothing to fulfill King's deadly demands. As in the previous volumes, the action ricochets around the globe, with Sam and Remi making one astounding discovery after another while they decipher cryptic clues, exchange banter, and escape otherwise inescapable dangers. Fresh prose, a smart and amusing husband-and-wife team, interesting history and science, and a wildly imaginative plot all add up to a good time for Cussler's many fans as well as series newcomers.

Library Journal
Sam and Remi Fargo are treasure hunters. But now, in a journey that takes them to Tibet, Nepal, China, Siberia, and Italy, they're hunting for a missing investigator friend. With artifacts ranging from a Stone Age ostrich egg to a skeleton that seems to be even older, this sounds like classic Cussler. In a review of Lost Empire (Xpress Reviews, 7/30/10), LJ termed the Fargo series "second tier at best"; you know if you have an audience.

What People are Saying About This

Tom Clancy
“A new Clive Cussler novel is like a visit from your best friend."

Meet the Author

Clive Cussler is the author of many New York Times bestsellers, most recently The Spy and Lost Empire. He lives in Arizona.
Grant Blackwood caught the fiction-writing bug at the age of eighteen while reading Clive Cussler’s The Mediterranean Caper , and spent the next four years working in different styles of fiction before settling on novel-length work.

Mr. Blackwood is a U.S. Navy veteran, having spent three years active duty aboard the guided missile frigate USS Ford as an Operations Specialist and a Pilot Rescue Swimmer.

Two months after leaving the Navy in July 1987, Mr. Blackwood started the first draft of his first novel, which as he puts it, “wasn’t good enough to be published, but good enough to earn a spot in my sock drawer. It took me several more years of rewriting before I realized the publishers and agents who’d been saying ‘no’ were saying no for a good reason.”

Twelve years to the day after leaving the Navy, Mr. Blackwood received an offer from Penguin-Putnam/Berkley to buy his second novel, The End of Enemies, which hit the stands May 8th.

Mr. Blackwood is 36 years old and lives in Minnesota, where he is working on this next novel, the second in the Briggs Tanner series of thrillers, which is due out in Spring/Summer of 2002.

Another winner for the Fargo's. It seems that all Mr. Cussler's books end too quickly. I could barely put this one down. The action was non-stop. The story inventive and the mountains views mouth-watering.

An interesting, with periods of bogged-down casual conversation and admiration between the characters (Fargo's),adventure type book. Some conveniences and sudden access to high tech gadgets, in the remotest corners of the world, are a bit unbelievable if not downright impossible. The book does keep one's interest or curiosity going toward discovery of the ultimate prize near the end, the very end. Not exactly a "page turner" as others in this series.

Another great thriller from Clive Cussler, I love the Fargo Adventure series. Great action without all the blood & guts that is Dirk Pitt. Mr. & Mrs Fargo are off across the globe again to solve another mystery and bring another relic to the modern world. Dirk Pitt may be my favorite, but the Fargos are closing the gap! Another great read from Mr. Cussler, Enjoy.

Absolutely loved it. Fast paced, very good story/adventure. Some of Sam and Remy's situations seemed a little far fetched but a great read none the less.
