Publisher's Summary

The search for a legendary automobile threatens the careers and lives of husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo in this thrilling new adventure in Clive Cussler's best-selling series.

In 1906, a groundbreaking Rolls-Royce prototype known as the Gray Ghost vanishes from the streets of Manchester, England, and it is only the lucky intervention of an American detective named Isaac Bell that prevents it from being lost forever. Not even he can save the good name of Marcus Peyton, however, the man wrongly blamed for the theft, and more than 100 years later, it is his grandson who turns to Sam and Remi Fargo to help prove his grandfather's innocence.

But there is even more at stake than any of them know. For the car has vanished again, and in it is an object so rare that it has the capacity to change lives. Men with everything to gain and a great deal to lose have a desperate plan to find it - and if anybody gets in their way? They have a plan for that, too.

Critic Reviews

The Gray Ghost showcases why readers love the various series of books written by Cussler and his co-authors. Burcell does a wonderful job adding richness and depth to the already established characters of Sam and Remi while telling a rip-roaring story.” (Associated Press)

“A fast-paced tale that reaches back to the early days of automotive glory...A complicated and clever plot...The Fargos are great series characters, whip-smart and altruistic...Thriller fans will delight in this latest escapade. Cussler and co-author Burcell have delivered a winner.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

“Refreshing...[The plot’s] imaginative mix pumps new energy into [the] series.” (Publishers Weekly

Not as good as previous works

I hardly ever review anything but felt compelled in this case. I have read or listened to everything that Clive Cussler has written in regards to Bell, Fargo, Oregon Files and NUMA and am very passionate about his writings. However this book left me somewhat disappointed. It didn't seem to me as much of an intertwining of two series as not having enough material for two books so mashing it together into one. Obviously just my opinion, but being the Cussler fan that I am, I expected more.

Not as good as the other Fargo books

I’ve been on Audible for 5 years and hardly ever review books. I felt compelled because I was extremely disappointed. Too much reverting back to the past. Didn’t like Isaac Bell being brought into the story. Overall it was just ok!!

Great story

Cussler takes a piece of history and makes it into a story that anyone can enjoy. This is why I'll continue to purchase his books. He makes history fun to learn about not to mention I'm always looking for where he writes himself into the storyline.

Falls a Little Short for Me

I like the Sam and Remi Fargo series. And this one piqued my curiosity early when it worked in Detective Albert Bell from a different Cussler series. But the story just never seemed to grab me. It wasn’t bad; just not as engaging as earlier entries. Scott Brick was once again on top of his game as the narrator (isn’t he always?). So, mixed reviews from this listener/fan of the series. I’ll buy next one when it comes out, but wonder if Cussler has run out of gas on this series.

top 10 of all books! Mystery untill the end

action, mystery, you name is its there. a fictional car heist of a 40/50 original Rolls-Royce mixed with the true story of the Silver Ghost Rolls-Royce. Sam and Remi are the best husband wife team ever. GREAT read. one of Clives best. Dirk Pitt, meet your Nemesis. ;)

Great Story!

I loved the story! It was captivating! My only problem is that they put so many prepositions on the end of sentences! Other than that, I loved it!
