Description

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo must use their instinct for treasure-hunting to find a missing person in this novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series.

The Fargos are used to hunting for fortune, 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).

    Do not buy. It is not worth your money. Very boring and weak story.
  • Once again, into the breech...

    Another rousing Sam and Remi adventure based upon legend and underscored with wit, logical thought and panache. A page turner of the first degree and a delight to vicariously enjoy. Buy it and hang on!

    I love Clive Cussler's books! Especially Inca Gold! But it's not in iBooks! I would pay $19.99 for it!

    This book was such a Cussler cliche it was almost too painful to read. Not worth paying 15 bucks to feed Cussler's ego. I can't believe I read the whole thing. Last Cussler book for this dedicated fan. The ride is over.

    Extremely slow and very disappointing. Not up to Clive Cussler's usual standards and entertaining novels.
  • Good read. Typical CC story.
