Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Pirate by Clive Cussler, read by Scott Brick.

A brand-new Fargo adventure.

Husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo try to unravel another ancient and cryptic mystery. An 800-year-old treasure... An ancient cypher wheel... A brutal murder... And a man who will stop at nothing to claim what he considers rightfully his.

Sam and Remi Fargo have gone on impossible missions before and faced many perils, but never have they faced an adversary as determined as the one before them now. The battle will take them halfway around the world and at its end will be either one of the most glorious finds in history - or certain death.

Packed with hair-raising action, a whirlwind pursuit and a class-A Clive Cussler villain, this is a spectacular thrill ride from the Grand Master of Adventure.

A weaker Fargo adventure...

I'm a big fan of Cusslers Fargo series. Its right up there with Steve Berry's Malone series and Cusslers Isaac Bell books in my opinion. However, on this occasion I felt the story just fell short of the usual adventure and action you'd come to expect from this series. It didn't flow as well, and it was all highly predictable. Great performance from Scott Brick once again.

Great fun & worth every penny

good story, good performance. Not a great English accent in some places (or good for 1920's cockney) but that doesn't detract in any way.

Great book but the narration....

What did you like most about Pirate?

Easy plot, familiar characters and a few good twists

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narration was not Scott Brick at his best - his drifting UK West Country accent and then an East of England accent was laughable

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me smile !
