The Kingdom by Clive Cussler with Grant Blackwood



The Kingdom by Clive Cussler with Grant Blackwood was an Audible read.  As always, it was brilliantly narrated by Scott Brick.  This is the third book in the Fargo Adventure series and is firmly is the thriller adventurer genre.

Sam and Remy are once again somewhat reluctantly drawn into international intrigue and drama when they embark on the pursuit of Shangri-La.  This time the adventure begins when they are contacted by a Texas billionaire to help find a missing personal friend.  What begins as a search and recovery mission for a friend, soon turns into much, much more.  Do Sam and Remy save their friend, does their discovery change the known history of the world?

Once again, Sam and Remy Fargo are in a breathtaking discovery that has them tripping all over the globe in pursuit of the truth.  Black market fossils, rogue Chinese military, treacherous local help, and ancient bones all combine into a thrilling adventure.   This series is clearly alternative history with a thriller twist.  It doesn’t make the outcome plausible but it does make for an extremely good story.

Five out of five stars for a well plotted and interesting story.
