Waiting on Wednesday: The Romanov Ransom by Clive Cussler & Robin Burcell

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Romanov Ransom by Clive Cussler & Robin Burcell
Expected publication: September 12, 2017 by G.P. Putnam's Sons

Treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo's search for a Romanov fortune brings them into perilous contact with an ambitious neo-Nazi clan, in the thrilling adventure from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.

In 1918, a ransom of enormous size was paid to free the Romanovs from the Bolsheviks, but, as history knows, the Romanovs died anyway. And the ransom? During World War II, the Nazis stole it from the Russians, and after that--it vanished. Until now.

When a modern-day kidnapping captures the attention of husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo, the couple soon learn that these long-lost riches may be back in play, held in trust by the descendants of a Nazi guerrilla faction called the Werewolves. It is their mission to establish the Fourth Reich, and their time is coming soon.

As the Fargos follow the trail across Europe, Northern Africa, and South America, they know only one thing. This quest is greater than anything they have ever done--it is their chance to make someone answer for unspeakable crimes, and to prevent them from happening again.

Nobody does popcorn thrillers and over-the-top treasure hunts quite like Clive Cussler, and the Fargos are probably my favorite characters next to Dirk Pitt. It's not quite a summer release, but still one to enjoy while kicking back outside for an afternoon.


  1. I didn't know Clive Cussler was still churning the books out. He must've released a good few by now. The cover is good, I like that kind of snow scene.

  2. Sounds fun! I love these globe trotting adventure-type novels. I've been playing a lot of Uncharted 4 lately too, so treasure hunting is on my brain...
