Publisher's Summary

The search for a legendary automobile threatens the careers and lives of husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo in this thrilling new adventure in Clive Cussler's best-selling series.

In 1906, a groundbreaking Rolls-Royce prototype known as the Gray Ghost vanishes from the streets of Manchester, England, and it is only the lucky intervention of an American detective named Isaac Bell that prevents it from being lost forever. Not even he can save the good name of Marcus Peyton, however, the man wrongly blamed for the theft, and more than 100 years later, it is his grandson who turns to Sam and Remi Fargo to help prove his grandfather's innocence.

But there is even more at stake than any of them know. For the car has vanished again, and in it is an object so rare that it has the capacity to change lives. Men with everything to gain and a great deal to lose have a desperate plan to find it - and if anybody gets in their way? They have a plan for that, too.

Another winner from the Cussler Team #Audible1

#Audible1 The amazing writing team that Clive Cussler has amassed produced another winner in my opinion. The Grey Ghost combines combines the detective skills of Issac Bell with the Fargos and produces a riveting tale between the two time periods. Throughly enjoyable for the entire length of the book. Great entertainment value.

Not as good as previous works

I hardly ever review anything but felt compelled in this case. I have read or listened to everything that Clive Cussler has written in regards to Bell, Fargo, Oregon Files and NUMA and am very passionate about his writings. However this book left me somewhat disappointed. It didn't seem to me as much of an intertwining of two series as not having enough material for two books so mashing it together into one. Obviously just my opinion, but being the Cussler fan that I am, I expected more.

Not as good as the other Fargo books

I’ve been on Audible for 5 years and hardly ever review books. I felt compelled because I was extremely disappointed. Too much reverting back to the past. Didn’t like Isaac Bell being brought into the story. Overall it was just ok!!

Great story

Cussler takes a piece of history and makes it into a story that anyone can enjoy. This is why I'll continue to purchase his books. He makes history fun to learn about not to mention I'm always looking for where he writes himself into the storyline.

Falls a Little Short for Me

I like the Sam and Remi Fargo series. And this one piqued my curiosity early when it worked in Detective Albert Bell from a different Cussler series. But the story just never seemed to grab me. It wasn’t bad; just not as engaging as earlier entries. Scott Brick was once again on top of his game as the narrator (isn’t he always?). So, mixed reviews from this listener/fan of the series. I’ll buy next one when it comes out, but wonder if Cussler has run out of gas on this series.

Issues with story but narration most concerning

Love Remi and Fargo, but storyline is becoming way too convenient and predictable. It needs to change up.

However, I'm most concerned about the narration. I've listened to a lot of Scott Brick narrated books. I've gotten so used to his voice that I've specifically chosen books because he was narrating. However, with this book, and the last I listened to, Steve Berry's "The Malta Exchange", I've heard a change. The tone, inflection, cadence, accents, etc are all off, so much so I can't believe this is Scott. Unless my hearing has completely changed in the last couple of weeks, it is hard to believe this is Scott Brick. Nothing sounds right about this book.

First Fargo Story that was Hard to Follow

I love the series, but (spoiler) the crossover to Issac Bell (and I love that series too) made it hard to follow at times. The action seemed less intense and overall story was somewhat disappointing. Scott Brick as always did a fantastic job.

Don't Mix Bell with Fargo! Bell bo sinks this tal

I find Isaac Bell stories ponderously wishy washy. They bog the Fargos down.

Fargo fun is buried in details.

Scott Brick is great, the story not as exciting

The story was good but not as exciting as past story's. had this been a different book that the Fargo series, o would have probably rated it higher. The treasure mystery was just lack luster to me. Scott Brick as always did a amazing job bringing the story to life.
