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.

So I LVOE adventure books with witty strong characters and this series always delivers. The fargo adventures constantly have me glued to my MP3 player wondering how there going to get there asses out of another jam. I would recomend any of the Fargo storys but I would suggest starting with the first book, they can be stand alone books but are much better if read in order. If you like history mixed with adventure you will surly like this series. Cant wait for another one!
Exciting! Smart! Unpredictable!
The balloon ride was one of my favorite parts of the story.
Finding the mushroom shaped rock and the action that follows.
This vo made me smile a lot.
Cussler does it again. The Fargos are becoming favorites of mine as I hear of their exploits. The author is able to balance action/historical drama and embellishment with technical data to make the great majority of the story-telling fascinating. Some of the technical description along with spatial description was hard to follow at points. But this does not detract from the over all enjoyment of the genre. I will go back to them again.
This book ranks right up at the top of Clive Clussler's books.
Awesome. Just enough detail to keep the story very alive and fast moving without getting to deep into one detail.
Cussler's patented action comes alive on audio.
As with most of Cussler's books, I liked the international flavor and make believe history.
Not really; however, it held my attention from the beginning to end.
I love these adventures with Sam and Remi Fargo and this was the best one yet with some of their most creative and unlikely escapes from death-threatening situations. Also it introduces a new researcher who is quite engaging. I hope we see more of him in future books. This time it begins with Sam and Remi trying to rescue a friend but quickly turns into a treasure hunt before the bad guy can kill them or take the treasure for his own nefarious purposes.
Avid reader....... passionately addicted to Audible!
Wonderful suspense. Scott Brick is absolutely fabulous! Will order other two books in the series.
This was a great book. The Fargos were great from the start. Can't wait for the next one. I didn't want to put it down,
