Quickie Book Review: "Lost Empire" ("Fargo Adventures", No. 2) by Clive Cussler with Grant Blackwood

Synopsis: Adventurers Sam and Remi Fargo stumble across an old bell while vacationing in Zanzibar.  They soon discover that it was part of the Civil War battleship Shenandoah, which had been sold to Zanzibar's sultan and then disappeared.  Unfortunately, someone else wants that bell bad enough to kill the Fargos for it, and Sam and Remi's journey to find its secrets and save it will take them all over the planet.

Review: What a surprise! I had never read a Clive Cussler novel before, but this one was so much fun, I blew through all 498 pages in about an hour or so!  Plenty of action and intensity, along with only a small amount of objectionable content, made Lost Empire a great read.  I only wish I had read the first Fargo Adventure previously, but, oh, well.

Content Concerns: Small dashes of profanity, along with some intense action/violence, though it never goes beyond "PG" territory.

Score: 4.25/5
