Sam and Remi Fargo, heroes of Spartan Gold , return in this extraordinary new adventure from the number-one New York Times - bestselling author.

With Spartan Gold , a daring thriller that Publishers Weekly proclaimed "solidly in the Cussler tradition, [and] sure to please new fans and old," Clive Cussler introduced husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo. In their electrifying new adventure, the Fargos make a startling discovery that others would kill to keep hidden...

While scuba diving in Tanzania, Sam and Remi Fargo come upon a relic belonging to a long-lost Confederate ship. An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery-but unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase. Mexico's ruling party, the ultranationalist Mexica Tenochca, is intent on finding that artifact as well, because it contains a secret that could destroy the party utterly.

Through Tanzania and Zanzibar, into the rainforests of Madagascar, and across the Indian Ocean to Indonesia and the legendary site of the 1883 Krakatoa explosion, the Fargos and their ruthless opponents pursue the hunt-but only one can win. And the penalty for failure is death.

Filled with the dazzling suspense and breathtaking action that are Cussler's trademarks, Lost Empire is a stunning new novel from the grand master of adventure.

Rated 10/10. I really enjoy the Fargo adventures. Looking forward to the others in this series.

An interesting story but I found that some of the discovery aspects were just too unbelievable. It was sometimes also difficult to follow the train of logic for how Sam and Remi were moving from one hint to the next.

The Fargo's globe hopping adventures are detailed enough to learn about foriegn romantic places. I often use Google Earth while reading to follow the geography path of the story in greater detail. Much fun!

An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery—but unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase.
