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.

    "The Fargo's Soar to Shangri-La"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. The team of Cussler and Blackwood write an excellent story. The quality of these stories continue to improve and entertain. These books are feel good tales where the good guys win in the end. I am a sucker for these stories and enjoy them all.
    .
    In this book the husband-wife team of treasure hunters are duped into hunting for an old friend. During that hunt they discover clues to an ancient treasure. The team hunts down all the clues; solves an ancient mystery; travel through Nepal, China,and eastern Europe, discover the whereabouts of their old friend; and reveal the origin of mankind.
    .
    Just another routine "day" in the lives of the Fargo's.
    .
    Just another excellent book to enjoy and remember. And come back to another day.
    .
    Keep up the great work Scott Brick. You can make reading the phone book enjoyable.

    "The Kingdom"

    i may have been nursed too much by D Pitt but it seems the TWO characters herein are too good, rich, smart, romantic to be true - the story as always is fantastic - then maybe its me wishing for someone(s) believable

    I always enjoy the attention to detail the C. Cussler puts into these books and the historical center of it all. I am enamored by the Fargo couple and huge fans.

    Story
    "Not the best villain this time...."

    (Minor Plot Spoilers ahead)
    I've been working my way through the Fargo adventures. I was very pleased with the first two all-around. This third installment was my favorite mystery, but I feel the worst villain so far. Without giving too much away, we find that the villains father had pretty much abandoned his family in search of this artifact. Therefore, the villain grows up a successful business man, and is willing to spend most of his fortune as well as murdering people, to find locate the artifact with the intention to destroy it as some sort of post-humous F-U to his dead father? That's a stretch, even if we accept that this otherwise successful billionaire is a pathological evil doer. Also, the dirigible sequence at the beginning feels tacked on, just so the Fargoes can discover it later as an escape method. At that point in the book there have already been so many twists and turns and escapes it seems unneeded. Plus, after the villain thought they were dead and had stopped pursuing them, the Fargoes call him up to "rattle his cage" with personal insults even though this only serves to enrage him while shedding no new light on their mystery or useful information to continue their hunt. They had everything they needed already to pursue their goal and would have been able to better operate under the radar if they stayed "dead". This only served as a plot device to setup more confrontations to escape from.

    That being said, the actual hunt and mystery were excellent this time around. I really like the allies encountered along the way. This one really had a better pace and I enjoyed the locales visited. It felt authentic when they were on the hunt. The only places where you had to suspend reality were in the confrontations with the villain.

    Overall, a worthy and fun read.

    Story
    "Not My Favorite"

    While Scott Brick did everything possible to salvage it, The Kingdom was just way too predictable. The Fargos are always mushy, to point of boredom.
    My favorite character? Selma. She has brains, with a touch of sauciness.
