Brick my own
While a big Clive Cussler fan, this is my first Fargo Adventure - if all goes according to plan, the first series I will actually read in chronological order.

leave it to Cussler (writing with Grant Blackwood) to keep the reader riveted to the book. I don't typically have a lot of downtime at home, so I have largely relegated myself to Audible, while walking the dog, exercising and/or driving in the car - my escape time.

I enjoyed getting to know Sam and Remi Fargo a lot, and their adventure placed in some historical event is typical for any Cussler book. This makes Cussler so much more enjoyable, because it is so easy to relate to the events, being able to put them into some historical timeframe.

What's different? The Fargo's are actually treasure hunters! So Cussler, actually creates a forum for our heroes to be more believably in the adventure. Dirk Pitt and related Numa and Oregon files were all about happenstance, and accidental intrigue. While Isaac Bell being a detective, could logically be found in global intrigue, the Fargo's actually are treasure hunters, so them finding clues to some long lost, history changing event could be viewed as more plausible.

What else is different? Cussler' s other characters all seemed up right, full of character and fortitude, whereas the Fargo's seem genuinely good, they don't have some of the hesitancy to act forcefully that others have had. Pitt and Bell both seemed hesitant to cause physical harm, and never really wanted to kill (if they didn't have to). Sam, and Remi both seem to be a bit more bold as it relates to the morality and mortality of their situation (for example, in this book the couples main protagonist is allowed to fall to his death, despite the Fargo's ability to help him).

The story begins with some pleasant vacation related diving off the coast of Tanzania, and the discovery of a confederate ship (or at least its bell). This singular discovery takes them across the globe, in competition with and in defiance of a nationalistic Mexican ruling party who needs to prevent further discovery at any cost.

It seems that maybe the Aztecs (you know Montezuma and all them) perhaps aren't really Mexican in origin, and this secret could lead to the downfall of Mexico's ruling party. But first a geographical and historical romp through Africa, Indonesia and many other lands with plenty of vacation potential.

The Fargo's are backed by their team of trusted and highly intelligent friends and team members to help solve the riddles and mystery of "The Lost Empire"

I did love the story, and would normally give Clive and team 5 stars, but in this case I am still trying to figure out in my head whether I like the lesser character traits of our hero's . Time will tell, and perhaps after a few more stories, and a bit more character development, I will be able to come back and adjust my review and rankings.

great story for this series. action and not a dull moment
gives facts with all the plots they go through,
the only draw back is in every one of these stories
tell the same thing over about the main characters and how they met and their house
befor and after it blows up.
the dog is one that i would want after i had a very large house for it to live in.

As a longtime Cussler fan I typically enjoy each new book. While the Fargo's first book left room for improvement, I had hoped the characters would settle in and Lost Empire would make progress. Unfortunately, I felt this one suffered from the same problems as the first one. The historical premise is interesting enough and I enjoy a good treasure hunt as much as the next guy. However, I enjoy being able to try to solve each of the puzzles along with the heros. This is not possible here. Repeatedly the characters bring up information they have read, but that the reader is not privy to, that helps them figure out the next step. This dampened much of my interest in the clues themselves as I quickly realized I had no chance of reaching the solution before the Fargos who would soon proceed to briefly explain it to me in a hand-waving sort of way. Several of the clues rely on images which are included in the text and I found that to be a nice touch. I did not read the Kindle version of this book but hope those images would be included and come out as readable as they are in the printed text. There were numerous editing problems here. Perhaps I missed some detail somewhere but at one point a poem serves as part of the clues. This poem is included in the text in two places but some of the lines are different. The Fargos are likable characters but still feel a bit flat. As other reviewers have noted we don't really have a good idea of what they look like. Also, I relish a well-drawn bad guy to terrorize the story's heros. Here, the head bad guy, a very powerful man in Mexico, is seldom seen and I'm not sure why exactly I should care that he is in charge, other than his corruption. His right hand man threatens the Fargos several times as they solve each clue, but he simply doesn't show up at golden opportunities. He feels to me like he's pulling punches. These are not the traits of a cold-blooded killer who could really give our heros some trouble. I did enjoy much of the scenery the Fargos find themselves in as they travel around the world. All in all, I would say the Fargos could still have potential, but they'll have to kick it up a few notches. Let's see another great Isaac Bell book soon.

I've been reading Cussler books for years and collecting some of the different series he's co written with other authors.
Second in the "Fargo" series, Lost Empire would make a pretty good way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon. The second of 3 written with Grant Blackwood it isn't the best of them but still better tha # 4 "The Tombs", co written with Thomas Perry.
I'd put off buying for some reason but noticed Amazon offering the book for $1.30 for the hardcover (I always try to get the hardcover editions of a good book, more durable than paperback) vs. $8.99 for the paperback… I got a perfect copy so don't be worried that you'll get "shopworn"- if you don't like it, give or throw it away, you won't lose much

It's worth a try if you've read other Cussler books and a good gamble at this price if you haven't .
