La passione per i misteri dell’antichità e la capacità di riportare alla luce preziosi reperti hanno diffuso nel mondo la fama dei coniugi Sam e Remi Fargo, cacciatori di tesori del terzo millennio. Nessuno però aveva mai chiesto loro di ritrovare una persona scomparsa.
La strana richiesta, arrivata ai Fargo da Charles King, ricchissimo petroliere texano, cadrebbe nel vuoto se l’uomo da cercare non fosse un vecchio amico della coppia, un investigatore mandato sulle tracce del padre di King e come lui sparito nel nulla.
Due uomini scomparsi, un miliardario che sembra sapere molto più di quanto dice: per il fiuto dei Fargo gli elementi inquietanti sono davvero troppi, a partire dalla data della scomparsa del padre di King, risalente a quarant’anni prima.
Perché mandare qualcuno a cercarlo dopo tanto tempo? Che cos’aveva trovato quell’uomo in Nepal, l’ultimo posto in cui è stato avvistato? E perché King incarica i suoi due figli di accompagnare, o meglio di controllare, i Fargo nella ricerca?
È l’inizio di una travolgente avventura che porterà Sam e Remi dal Nepal alla Bulgaria, all’India, alla Cina, tra pericoli mortali e codici misteriosi, fino alla scoperta di una verità che potrebbe riscrivere la storia dell’uomo...

It had been a while since Sam and Remi Fargo had been in Kathmandu, Nepal, but with a colleague missing somewhere in this vast country, they were determined to do their best to find him. They had their suspicions about the person who’d recruited them, and as time moved forward, it seemed they were r Leggi tutto
The third installment in the Fargo Adventures was a little bit of a disappointment and not because of the writing issues, which I wrote about in my reviews for Spartan Gold and Lost Empire . No - in fact the writing style had gotten increasingly better from the first book. The useless details are alm Leggi tutto
Um, where to start... I guess I'll get going by saying why I wanted to read this book in the first place. If we disregard the major motivating factor of, I got the book for free, we must then examine my next motivation - the cover. I looked at it and thought, how on Earth could I not want to read a b Leggi tutto
Clive Cussler covers are epic. Simple, clean and evocative, these covers for me are the kind that inspire you to buy the print version of a book even though it's more expensive than the Kindle version. And Cussler's new novel, The Kingdom, is no different. With backgrounded Himalaya, snow and dark sk Leggi tutto
“Place names are trivial. It’s the meaning we attach to them that counts.” At some point successful authors conclude they can sell books based on their name rather than the content. Apparently Clive Cussler reached that point when writing this book. It is the kind of fast-paced Indiana-Jones-type act Leggi tutto
Of all the "cussler books" I have read, this is by far the worst. Of course, it was not written by Clive Cussler. His name is just the largest on the cover. The actual author was Grant Blackwood and it is a spinoff of a character Cussler introduced in one of his novels. I found it very difficult to ' Leggi tutto
The Fargo series is the weakest of Cussler's franchises, but still entertaining. This particular one moves faster than most, breezing through the requisite historical prologues and jumping in to the action. The Antagonist is a bit two dimensional, although with a few interesting familial quirks; and Leggi tutto
Another solid effort by this writing team. History, action, enemies, treasure, hunters, murder an mayhem. Its all happening here. Love this genre - its like reading an action movie.
I listened to this audiobook. Sam and Remi Fargo are professional treasure hunters. They are like Indiana Jones. The book begins by setting a stage in ancient China with a sentinel traveling with a mysterious box and guarding it with his life. The book also describes a giant dirigible being built ma Leggi tutto
Well, the dynamic duo strikes again...this time thwarting the obscure machinations of a Texas billionaire in Nepal, of all places. The plot is thin, but the action moves things along quite nicely, thank you very much. Sam and Remi get around with seemingly super human abilities, including not suffer Leggi tutto
