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 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

    "Shangri-La"

    The Kingdom provides a stern test for my ability to suspend disbelief. It is a good thriller, but it subject matter is very fanciful.

    "Love the Fargos!!"

    I really have grown to love these books. Cussler does such a great job with developing strong characters, and the Fargos are among his best. Love the adventurous spirits, and the never say die attitude. Just great writing. The narration by Brick adds to the enjoyment. Great series!

    Story
    "A Bit Too Long"
    What did you like best about The Kingdom? What did you like least?

    Thank you Audible for having the sale on this series. I purchased seven all at once as I did not want to miss out on a great story. I love the fact that Clive Cussler teams up with other authors. I only wish that the editing would be a bit more consistent. Frankly this was too long and I stopped as the chapters seem to be all the same tempo just a different local.
    The assorted co authors bring different elements to the series which is good, however if you listen to them one after the other, you will quickly realize which co author YOU really enjoy.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood ? Why or why not?

    Yes on Mr. Cussler and yes On grant Blackwood. Blackwoods book the kill switch is excellent. He again co-authors, this time with a veterinarian, James Rollins to produce a canine story. However book 2 in that series fails to meet up with the first book. I can't put my finger on it but I think Mr. Black Wood needs better editing so that his work is consistent.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I purchased this entire series because Mr. brick reads them so well.


    Did The Kingdom inspire you to do anything?

    I love all the openings in this series as it makes you want to find out the rest of the story. However, adventure stories cannot go on too long as you lose interest to the mystery and the thrill goes away.


    Any additional comments?

    Note: I do use the new 1.25x speed to match the authors intent

    "This Review Needs A Title...So, I Gave it One"

    Around the world in 80 days, landed in Shangri-La. What fun. Suspend the laws of physics and skim over the characters. Add a little history, imagination, a treasure hunt, communist Chinese in the employ of the evil villain. There you have it. A Cussler book that's not a Cussler book. Wow! Next, please?

    "Good story. A little slow at times. But otherwise enjoyable!"

    This book started off great. But it ended up going in a different direction than what I expected which normally isn't a bad thing. This time the direction it took was more of a snoozer than a nail biter. Still love the characters and will continue my reads. This one just wasn't in my top ten!
