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.

    Story
    "First one of these I've returned"
    What would have made The Kingdom better?

    "What would have made the Kingdom better?"... Not trading on liberal stereotypes of Texas and Texans...

    I've tolerated some of the nonsensical silliness in the first two of the Fargo series and may try subsequent offerings, because of the fascinating historical storylines.

    I've suspended disbelief that two people that were smart enough to amass an independently wealthy fortune are too stupid to think of having armed security go with them when they KNOW that the bad guys are pursuing them.

    I've overlooked the absurdity of two moderately healthy and athletic people being able to overpower trained special forces killers over-and-over-and-over again.

    I've over-ruled my common sense when it scoffed at two novices penetrating highly-secured facilities to perpetrate what amounted to assault and theft of private property, because... rationalization goes here.

    As I say, I'm going to return this book and hope that this was an anomaly and I can go back to only having to hold my nose to enjoy the rest of the book without having to overlook bigoted stereotypes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood again?

    Yes; as long as he and his partner keep their biases in check.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Very engaging.


    What character would you cut from The Kingdom?

    "The King"


    Any additional comments?

    Here's hoping for better future results.

    "Scott Brick wtf"

    book 3 down. I keep hoping Scott Brick will stop with sing-song narration. I feel like I'm listening to a kindergarten teacher read out loud.
    for the book: all have very similar vibe. in a way it made me (the reader) feel more comfortably familiar with each book. the Fargos find a way to keep things real...no matter how deep'a trouble they're in! I love treasure hunting, foreign locales, rocks and caves too.
    I'd compare (if I had to) these books to the Robert Langdon series.
    bottom line, come along. let's listen to Sam & Remi get themselves in deep sh*t. serious entertainment. won't disturb your sleep. good clean fun!

    "Another great book by Clive Cussler"

    I absolutely enjoy any book by Clive Cussler, at first I was hesitant about this series but having read or listened to all the books in his other series, the Fargoes have reeled me in and I'm hooked, and I also enjoy Scott Brick's narrating he helps to keep the listener engaged.

    "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.

    "Evolution?"

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