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.

    I drive about 650 miles a week, Audible helps me make those trips palatable - some fiction, self help and business "reads" add value to me.

    "History"

    It's nice to get a new perspective of the histories of other cultures in these books. The antagonist and protagonist play against one another with scale and believability.

    "3 Sam and Remy Fargo books in a row"

    I just read 3 of the Fargo series back to back, so this review will cover all 3. I've read other Cussker books and always have found them well written with solid plots. And Scott Brick is one of favorite readers; I mean the man is gifted. So when the Fargo series came up on a $4.95 sale, I figured I'd dabble. Here's my one regret: I should have bought more of them at $4.95. I should have bought the entire series. Not that I want to keep reading them right now. 30+ hours of the Fargos will hold me over for awhile, but these books are great escapist go-to reads. You like the characters (though Sam and Remy's relationship is a little too perfect) and the weaving through the plots are always right and fun. Of the three, I think I liked The Kingdom best, but maybe it was because it was the first of the 3 I read.

    "Evolution?"

    Excellent tale except for the fact that it centers around and let's lie an evolutionary "missing link".

    "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.
