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

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.
