Publisher's Summary

The outstanding new Fargo adventure from the number-one New York Times best-selling author.

There are many rumors about the bay off Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. Some say it was the site of the lost empire of the Solomon king and that great treasure lies beneath the waters. Others say terrible things happened here, atrocities and disappearances at the hands of cannibal giants, and those who venture there do not return. It is cursed.

Which is exactly what attracts the attention of husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo. How could they resist? Clues and whispers lead them on a hunt from the Solomons to Australia to Japan, and what they find at the end of the trail is both wonderful and monstrous - and like nothing they have ever seen before.

What the Critics Say

"Cussler and Blake have given us another riveting thriller. Sam and Remi are fearless, honest, curious, and resourceful in all situations. Fasten your seat belt for this wonderful read!" (Library Journal)

"Scenes, settings, and action are graphic-novel worthy, from sweat-stained jungle treks to bad-guy confrontations, all laced with historical factoids and a soupçon of fantasy for across-the-board appeal. Cussler and Company continue the winning formula, and this jungle episode, featuring exotic locales and an interesting back story, will satisfy the cravings of every fan." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Sam and Remi Fargo wield automatic weapons as well as they do metal detectors. This adventure series stands as one of the crown jewels in the Cussler empire." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great adventure"

    I love Clive Cussler books and this is no exception. I really appreciate the way the story weaves through scene after scene of adventure and excitement.
    It is refreshing to find a book packed with intrigue and yet no foul language - brilliant!

    "Great again"

    I listened to the unabridged version of this book and really enjoyed it. The characters are always well developed and interesting. The plot twists are intriguing. I always enjoy the adventure. Scot Brick was a great reader. He brings every character to life.

    "The adventure continues..."

    This is your typical Sam and Remi Fargo adventure and has all the usual features; hidden treasure, bad guys shooting at our heroes, a predictable twist or two and his usual support staff. This series will never win a Pulitzer Prize for fiction but that is really not what we expect. This is another fun distraction from Cussler and Blake without all the blood and gore that is becoming more common in today’s literature. Sam and Remi fans will enjoy this book and will be wanting more as soon as is practicable.

    Scott Brick gives an excellent performance.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Not among Cusslers best novels; disappointing"

    The Sam and Remi Fargo Adventures series by Cussler and coauthors is definitely my least favorite Cussler techno-thriller series. I rate them as follows (best to worst): Isaac Bell, Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, and Fargo Adventures. Of his 67 techno-thrillers Cussler wrote of only 17 is he the sole author. The other 50 novels were written with a total of 10 coauthors. My issue with the Sam and Remi Fargo books is that the quality is highly variable ranging from 2 star to 5 star. I'm probably through reading or listening to Clive Cussler novels unless he introduces a new Isaac Bell novel coauthored by Justin Scott.

    "Not as good as predecessors = still great"

    I can't quite put my finger on it, but this book just is not as quite as good as previous Sam and Remi Fargo books. Maybe not quite the level of adventure. And not quite the puzzle solving.

    Yet it's still my favorite adventuring married couple. I love the way they feel toward each other and I love the banter between them. It reminds me so much of my own marriage. Love and laughs!

    So it gets 4 stars instead of 5. Big whoop. Still an enjoyable read.

    Scott Brick does his usual excellent job.

    If you're a fan of these books, you'll like this one too!

    "Great Writing & Research"

    As always, Clive Cussler has another great adventure, this time with the Fargos. They are very interesting and admirable characters. Well-written and researched. Scott Brick always brings the characters to life. Exciting from beginning to end with good a ending!

    "As good as always."

    I enjoyed it the twists were good but the bad guy was figured out early not much of a leap there. Very good.
