Another winner for the Fargos. There were twists and turns and surprises , at least for me. It amazes me how Cussler can weave so many different avenues in a book and then have it all wind up together at the end. ( )

It is not your typical Fargo story. However, it makes the characters stand out as three dimensional people. Cussler sure put a lot of research into Guadalcanal, including a revolution during the late 20th century. What is usually the main plot point, some type of underwater / archaeological site has little to anything to do with the plot. Luckily there are so many subplots, poorly tied together. Mostly, it deals with unrest on the island. There are a couple of ancillary characters--a Brit and a Russian, who play support roles. ( )

New co-author, same great results. Was expecting the biblical Solomon but pleased with the results; hoping the coda is the jumping off point for the next installment as well. ( )

Good history plus good mystery make a good holiday read. A definite improvement over the last installment of the Fargo series. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

There are many rumors about the bay off Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. Some say it was the site of the lost empire of the Solomon king and that great treasure lies beneath the waters. Others say terrible things happened here, atrocities and disappearances at the hands of cannibal giants, and those who venture there do not return. It is cursed. Which is exactly what attracts the attention of husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo. How could they resist? Clues and whispers lead them on a hunt from the Solomons to Australia to Japan, and what they find at the end of the trail is both wonderful and monstrous and like nothing they have ever seen before.… (more)
