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.

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.

Home RUN!!

I've now listened to this entire series and this book is in the top 3. If you've also listened to Isaac Bell series this book is even more exciting to read. (if you haven't read the Isaac bell series...what? :) )

A much needed torch in the series moving it back from good to great!

Awesome story and performance

Fun exciting story. Scott Brick does an amazing job. Great supporting characters. The Fargo's are the most fun treasure hunters!

Interesting Mix of Two Time Periods

One of the things I like about Mr. Cussler’s books is that the story is intriguing and full of action but minus the smut that seems to be in many modern novels. The other thing I liked was how the Fargos and Issac Bell were woven together into the story. I also loved how Remi and Sam come up with various schemes to get out of trouble and then have to use a different on the fly idea to safely escape. My dilemma now is which Cussler book to “read” next.

Wonderful book.

Loved it. Early 1900s Isaac Bell dovetailed nicely with the modern day Fargos. Hard to put down!
