Overview

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo must use their instinct for treasure-hunting to find a missing person in this novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.

The Fargos are used to hunting for fortune, not people. But then a Texas oil baron contacts them with a personal plea: an investigator friend of the Fargos' was on a mission to find the oil baron's missing father-and now the investigator is missing, too. Would Sam and Remi be willing to look for them both? Though something about the situation doesn't quite add up, the Fargos agree to go on the search.

What they find will be beyond anything they could have imagined. On a journey that will take them to Tibet, Nepal, Bulgaria, India, and China, the Fargos will find themselves embroiled with black-market fossils, a centuries-old puzzle chest, the ancient Tibetan kingdom of Mustang, a balloon aircraft from a century before its time...and a skeleton that could turn the history of human evolution on its head.

Packed with the endless imagination and breathtaking suspense that are his hallmarks, The Kingdom once again proves that Clive Cussler is "just about the best storyteller in the business" (New York Post).

About the Author

Clive Cussler is the author of more than fifty books in five bestselling series, including Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Fargo. His life nearly parallels that of his hero Dirk Pitt. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he and his NUMA crew of volunteers have discovered more than seventy-five lost ships of historic significance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley, which was raised in 2000 with much press publicity. Like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features more than eighty examples of custom coachwork. Cussler lives in Arizona and Colorado.

Grant Blackwood is the author of the Briggs Tanner series, as well as the coauthor of #1 New York Times bestseller Dead or Alive, with Tom Clancy, and The Kill Switch, with James Rollins. A U.S. Navy veteran, he spent three years on active duty aboard the guided missile frigate USS Ford as an Operations Specialist and a Pilot Rescue Swimmer. He caught the fiction-writing bug at the age of eighteen while reading Clive Cussler’s The Mediterranean Caper

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.

As always, Cussler leaves us breathtakingly following the adventures of Sam and Remi Fargo as they traipse across continents in search of yet another fortune.This time, the 'Golden Man'.The married duo are approached by a wealthy individual who wants them to locate a friend of theirs. In no short order they discover their friend was not missing, but taken and the wealthy man is searching for a relic that is absolutely priceless.True to form, Sam and Remi use their cunning, wit, and adoration of one another to see them through a series of trials that ends, of course, with them finding their lost friend and obtaining the artifact.What they find may defy the current norm for belief as to how mankind evolved.Or is it.... womankind?Yet another brilliant work from Cussler!

I was not impressed with this latest adventure of Sam and Remi Fargo. There is too much moving from one implausible scenario to another. The bad guy is never fleshed out, and the Fargo's interaction with him is limited. The ending is anticlimactic. I think Clive Cussler might have too many irons in the fire with all his different series. This book is a lack-luster spot on his shining resume.

An avid Cussler reader for years, I have read them all. While I truly enjoyed the early books, I struggle with the ones written over the past 5 years. The historical beginning is very slow and the writing seems very jilted throughout the book. This Fargo Adventure is no different. Sam and Remi are waylaid and convinced that they need to seek out a friend who is missing. The book never circles back to the original intention of the trip and thus I was left feeling like there was no point in them even brining it up in the first place. If you are an avid Cussler fan, read it. If not, skip this one, start at the beginning you will be glad you did.

The worst Cussler co-authored book yet. Very weak plot, sappy dialog, very poor writing from Blackwood. No more Fargo's for this Cussler fan.

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.

This is a great book for history buffs. It has the right amount of adventure, history and technology possibilities. It was hard to put down and kept you right into the action!
