Overview

The thrilling new adventure from the number-one New York Times-bestselling author.

The husband-and-wife team of Sam and Remi Fargo are used to hunting for treasure, but they aren't used to hunting for people-until an investigator friend of their goes missing, and they promise to search for him. What they discover, however, will be beyond anything they could have imagined.

On a journey that will take them to Tibet, Nepal, China, Italy, and Siberia, the Fargos find themselves embroiled with black-market fossils, an ancient Tibetan kingdom, a lost landmass in the North Sea, Stone Age ostrich egg shards inscribed in a cryptic language, a pair of battles separated by thousands of miles and hundreds of years . . . and a skeleton that could just turn the history of human evolution on its head.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the third adventure featuring the husband-and-wife team Remi and Sam Fargo (Spartan Gold; Lost Empire). Millionaire Charles King hires the duo to find his archaeologist father, who has been missing for several decades. Their quest takes them to exotic Katmandu, Bulgaria, and India, where they are met by King's twin offspring who keep a close watch on their activities. After narrow escapes and harrowing experiences, Sam and Remi discover the real reason King hired them. Scott Brick's reading is frustrating for the listener. Although he captures the local accents and characters' personalities, he drops the last words in some of the sentences, which makes the narration occasionally difficult to understand. Recommended for Cussler fans who can overlook the imperfect production. ["Perilous journeys through some of the most beautiful countries in the world and action-packed adventures experienced by a couple who love each other make for an enjoyable thrill ride," read the LJ Xpress Review, 5/13/11; the Putnam hc, published in June, was a New York Times best seller.—Ed.]—Ilka Gordon, Siegal Coll. of Judaic Studies Lib., Cleveland

The Kingdom (Fargo Adventure Series #3) 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 203 reviews.

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.
