El reino (Fargo 3)

by Clive Cussler Grant Blackwood

El matrimonio Fargo está a punto de tropezarse con algo que está más allá de lo que nunca hubiera imaginado. Sam y Remi Fargo son los mejores en su trabajo: descubrir tesoros ocultos y extraordinarios alrededor del mundo. Pero en esta ocasión la misión a la que se enfrentan es muy diferente. Esta vez deben encontrar a dos personas desaparecidas. Así se lo ha explicado su nuevo cliente, un poderoso magnate de Texas que desconoce el paradero de la persona a la que contrató para que diera con su padre. Los dos han desaparecido sin dejar rastro. El audaz matrimonio se embarcará en una trepidante investigación que les llevará hasta el antiguo reino tibetano de Mustang, pasando por Nepal, Bulgaria, India y China. En el peligroso recorrido tendrán que lidiar con traficantes de fósiles, un vetusto y misterioso cofre, un dirigible centenario... y un esqueleto que podría revolucionar las teorías sobre la evolución. La crítica ha dicho...«La serie Fargo se ha convertido en la joya de la corona del imperio de Cussler.»Publishers Weekly «El reino demuestra, una vez más, que Clive Cussler es, probablemente, el mejor narrador del gremio.»New York Post
