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.

Product 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).
