Book Review: “The Romanov Ransom”

Clusser, Clive and Robin Burrcell. The Romanov Ransom. New York, NY: G. P. Putman’s Sons, 2017. 
Bestselling Authors of the Fargo Adventure series returns with their 11th novel in the Sam and Remi ongoing series as they embark on another adventure. Clive Cussler is a well-known adventure writer and began on the “Sam and Remi Fargo” series back in the 1990s. For each tale, the couple goes on a new adventure with either a historic, realistic past, or completely fictional. Overtime, these characters develop into more wiser human beings, but can see how much humankind can be greedy and prideful by these hidden treasures. By his transformative and fast-paced writing style makes this story a page turner for both action/adventure lovers and fans. For this tale, treasure hunters, Sam and Remi Fargo, are on another adventure to finding the Romanov Jewels that once belonged to Empress Maria Feodorovna. This story is told in third person limited where the writer jumps through time periods to discuss how the jewels travels from person to person and the fate of each minor character until Sam and Remi get caught in this mysterious web. The main characters slowly finding out that they have more to discover on their hands dealing with the missing jewels, family members, and more. The tone of the story is majestic and serious because Clive and Burcell set the time period after World War II and involves a bit of actual historical events with the Romanov jewels. I am honored to read such a famous writers work alike Clive Clusser. His books are always on display and is well beloved by adult fiction readers. For this adventure series, I would recommend to a patron who likes a bit of historical elements while reading this type of adult genre.
