Product Description

Product Description

The Kingdom is Clive Cussler's third Fargo Adventure.



Whether it's lost treasure or missing persons, the Fargos find themselves in a heap of trouble every time . . .



When Texas oil baron Charlie King contacts Sam and Remi Fargo he has an unusual request. He hired an investigator - and good friend of the pair - to locate his missing father in the Far East. But now the investigator has vanished. Would Sam and Remi be willing to look for them both?



Though something about the request doesn't quite add up, Sam and Remi agree to help out.



It's a journey that takes the Fargos to Tibet, Nepal, Bulgaria, India, and China. They get mixed up with black-market fossils, a centuries-old puzzle chest, the ancient Nepali kingdom of Mustang, a balloon aircraft from a century before its time . . . and an extraordinary skeleton that might turn the history of human evolution on its head. Oh, and not a few unfriendly people with guns and itchy trigger fingers . . .



Clive Cussler, author of the celebrated Dirk Pitt novels Treasure of Khan and Valhalla Rising, presents the third novel in his newest series, following the adventures of treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo. The Kingdom follows Spartan Gold and Lost Empire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finding Shangri-La 8 Jun 2011
By wogan
Format:Hardcover
The Fargos are once again drawn into a fantastic adventure in an exotic locale. This book has all the usual suspects - a rich psychotic Texas oil baron who will stop at nothing to achieve what he desires, a friend in distress, and a lost treasure. It also includes a mysterious `dragon-lady' and her children who do the Texas billionaire's bidding, oh yes the children just happen to also be his.

The book starts with an obscure prelude which might have done a better job on cluing a reader in on what was happening, but all is soon made clear- as the mystery evolves and what the significance of the treasure is. They unravel the secrets of an ancient puzzle box, discover an illegal black market in fossils, all while attempting to free their captive friend.

As usual the Fargos have their loving banter and their multiple brushes with danger; crashing helicopters in the Himalayas, crawling through unmapped caves, flash floods, and pursuing armies. As customary they find helpful people just in time and as they reach a dead end. If these fortuitous events do not strain your viewpoint on the credibility of the plot you will enjoy the twists and turns... of searching for ancient treasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is not a Clive Cussler book 25 Oct 2012
By JonBoy
Format:Paperback
I used to read the Dirk Pitt books as soon as they were released and have read enough to know the difference - clearly when it says Clive Cussler with someone else, it just means someone else. It was a reasonably easy read, and an adequate story, but it was also full of plot points which were very unlikely, and ridiculous dialogue. Poorly written. Very disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Kingdom 20 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One star because not possible to give none.
Total rubbish! I had already given up reading Cussler books but was tempted here by the Mustang link having recently been there trekking.
Descriptions and situations for Mustang totally impossible; 8 hours Jomsom to Lo Manthang - impossible. I suspect all travel research for this work done through Google Earth, not on location.
I think CC has run out of steam and new ideas, there is better available from others.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dig deeper for a better read. 29 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback
There they are every time you good to the book shop. Loads and loads of Clive Cussler novels. For some reason the shear amount of novels he has produced had the effect of putting me off them. I can't say why that is, it just did.
Eventually with nothing else jumping off the shelf at the time I took the Cussler plunge. The words of a colleague echoing in my head "he is all I read".
Well my colleague needs to broaden her horizons. This is not very challenging boys own adventure fodder.
I feel having read one I could confidently predict the direction of the others and therfore will not bother.
Husband and wife team with a bottomless pocket full of cash go on an adventure to find a missing person. But they have been duped by a man with equally bottomless pockets into an ulterior quest. Sounds interesting but isnt't.
Travelling around the world as if its the size of England progressing their enquiries with coincidence after coincidence its all a bit to silly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Cussler joint release 26 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover
I look forward to new Cussler books and generally buy them as soon as they are available. They are an easy read and a welcome break when you've a weekend to while away and don't want to be too fussed about technicalities that so many authors put into their novels to show they've done months and months of research into obscure facts. Of the various 'joint' authorings Clive Cussler has taken to putting out in recent years, the Fargo adventures have good conceptural ideas at the base of the novel than most of the other 'joint' offerings and this book moves well until you get to the ending - it is too abrupt, not very well thought out, has many loose threads and frankly, it's disappointing - it left me thinking 'what was that all about?'.

Mr Cussler - if you are reading this, take time to read the books that bear your name more critically as this one doesn't do justice to the escapism your own books provide. The plot ideas are invariably good but the endings flop and disappoint!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cussler Gold 28 Jun 2011
By Parm TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
With the Fargos Cussler seems to have rediscovered the gold that makes him one of the leaders of the action adventure genre. The witty reparte between charaters is both fun and engaging, the character are very real not 2 dimensional and sterotypical as some had recently become.
This latest adventure has the usual thrills spills and crazy dare devil action, and it would not be a cussler book without them. You dont read a cussler for brain fodder you read it to escape and have fun...well this book is a fun ride from start to finish.
The man is back and better than ever... well worth reading.
(Parm)

Product Description (Taken from back of book)
The husband-and-wife team of Sam and Remi Fargo are used to hunting for treasure, but they aren't used to hunting for people - until an investigator friend of theirs goes missing, and they promise to search for him. What they find, however, will be beyond anything they could have imagined.

On a journey that will take them to Tibet, Nepal, China, Venice, and Siberia, the Fargos will find themselves embroiled with black market fossils, an ancient Tibetan kingdom, a lost landmass in the North Sea, stone-age ostrich egg shards inscribed in a cryptic language, a pair of battles separated by thousands of miles and hundreds of years...and a skeleton that could just turn the history of human evolution on its head.
