I really like the Fargo Adventures. I listened to this one while driving. It would have been better for me if I could have listened to it in one day; however, I did remember exactly what was happening. (6 days later) As in most of Cussler's books, there are plenty of characters to keep track of. I like how Cussler weaves an old event into each story. ( )

Around the world in 80 days, landed in Shangri-La. What fun. Suspend the laws of physics and skim over the characters. Add a little history, imagination, a treasure hunt, communist Chinese in the employ of the evil villain. There you have it. A Cussler book that's not a Cussler book. Wow! Next, please? ( )

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 the denouement, when it finally comes, is rushed and a bit unsatisfactory. Still a pleasant beach-read, but not a classic. ( )

The Fargo's, Sam and Remi, are back. They are hired (actually they are willing to do the work for free) by a billionaire named King who wants them to find a friend of their's, Alton, who has gone missing while working for King to try and locate his father. The strange thing is that King's father has been missing for almost 40 years. So, why look for him now?

The Fargo's accept the task because they want to find their friend Alton. But upon arriving at Katmandu they are greeted by King's son and daughter, who are a bit different, and end up being the evil children of an controlling father. Oh, not to mention that there is a young Asian woman who is King's assistant that appears to be more than just an assistant, maybe a mistress, maybe the kids mother, maybe a ruthless killer.

The reading is fast paced, as usual with a Cussler work. The story a bit implausible, but that makes it more fun. Lots of action, lots of twists and turns just like you expect from any of his work. ( )

Another great Cussler tale - a bit of history, a bit of travel, a great story, and a lot of fun to experience. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

On a journey that will take them to Tibet, Nepal, China, Italy, and Siberia, the Fargos 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.… (more)
