Publisher's Summary

Sam and Remi Fargo return for the thrilling third adventure in the acclaimed new series. In Spartan Gold and Lost Empire, Clive Cussler brought readers into the world of husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo, whose passion and instinct for treasure-hunting has led to extraordinary discoveries - and perilous journeys. Their next adventure, however, might be their most astonishing yet.

The Fargos are used to hunting for treasure, 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).

Listen to another far-flung Fargo Adventure.

    "A great story and set of hero's"

    I've been a long time reader and listener of Clive Cussler's books. I relish an adventure with Dirk and Al as much as any other Cussler fan. I really enjoy the stories with Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon. I have also found great enjoyment in our intrepid detective, Isaac Bell. However for some reason Sam and Remi are fast becoming my favourite Cussler protagonists. I don't know why for sure but I'm thinking it is the interaction of a married couple. It's similar to my enjoyment of the original Hometime series where Dean and his female co host would act the role of a couple doing whatever the episode was focused on. It brings the story home to me. Although my wife and I have no experiences like the Fargo's do their banter back and forth and unshakable faith in one another is something I can relate to.
    The Kingdom, the latest Fargo offering from Mr. Cussler, is a very enjoyable ride. A great weaving together of history and adventure that makes you want to not stop the story. In my humble opinion Scott Brick should be the ONLY voice of Cussler books as he delivers another sterling performance.
    You will not be disappointed with the journey you'll take in "The Kingdom"

    "An entertaining read"

    this was a good book for it's type. If you oike the Fargo's adventures you'll love this one. It is probably the best in the series. Unfortunately, this just isn't my type. I much prefer the NUMA and Especially like the Oregon series

    I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.

    Story
    "Cussler and Blackwood keep the Fargos going."

    Another intriguing story with the Fargos sent off to help a friend and then find themselves having another life changing adventure. The story is mostly set in Nepal but travels into Asia and the surrounding areas. So for people who don't like books that take them away from the US then Cussler is not your author. Cussler makes an appearance as he has in the last several books giving advice to steer the story back on course or in the direction best suited to complete a task. I, again, would recommend the Fargo Adventures to any fan of Cussler and fans of the action adventure genre.

    "The Fargos are at it again!"

    Not bad, not awesome, good summer "round the world with the Fargo's" . Some of this really stretches the suspension of disbelief efforts, but on balance good fun. His bad guys are usually rather entertaining.

    "A fun read as usual by Cussler"

    I've been a long time listener of Clive Cussler too. From Dirk and Al, Isaac Bell, Juan's crew, Kurt and Joe and now Sam and Remi. Its a wonderful book, a great summer read. Scott Brick is the man! Nobody reads a book like Scott. Towards the end of this book it seems like Cussler could have written so much more about the adventure, but I just didnt want it to end. Bravo to Cussler and all his ghost writers and their stories. However, at then end of the book I would love it if Cussler sepearted fact from fiction, like Steve Berry does. Do these places in the book exist and did some of these treasures exist.
    Enjoy

    "A Confusing Story"
    Would you try another book from Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood and/or Scott Brick?

    no


    What could Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A more cohesive story


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He had an annoying way of narration and it made me feel that he was not enjoying the story. It was as if he was reading it with an attitude. After a time, I began to understand why!


    What character would you cut from The Kingdom?

    I'm not sure. There was a confusing cast of characters jumping in and out of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was so fast paced and confusing that I was left with little idea what was going on, why, where, or who was doing it.
