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.
