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.

Husband-and-wife treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are back for another action-packed adventure in this third book in the Fargo Adventure series from Cussler and Blackwood. An eccentric Texas billionaire brings the couple to Nepal and the Himalayan Mountains to search for a missing employee, but clues reveal their employer's goal is something altogether more avaricious. Thus begins a dangerous quest for fabled treasure. Like all Cussler thrillers, there are the requisite beautiful, brilliant, wealthy, athletic, expert protagonists, and the greedy, evil, cruel, conniving foes and Cussler fans will absolutely love it. Scott Brick is as proficient as ever, enthralling listeners with his precise, dramatic narration. Cussler stories always begin with a fascinating mix of history, science, fact, and fiction, and Brick delivers these by creating believable accents and speech patterns for a wide variety of characters. Between the writing and the narrator's top-notch performance, this audiobook is exactly what listeners have come to expect from the series, and that makes it rewarding. A Putnam hardcover.
This book should have been free, so much advertising for Apple they must have paid for it.
Other wise the book was great.
