Sam and Remy Fargo aren't your typical treasure hunters. They're not in the business for money or fame. Independently wealthy thanks to Sam's engineering acumen and his development of a prototype scanner, the Fargos search out and recover treasure and historical artifacts to donate to museums and countries. Both Sam and Remy lend their individual expertise to the hunt. Sam with his engineering skills and Remy with her anthropological and historical knowledge.
Interrupted on a quest in Sumatra by a mysterious Asian woman, the Fargos are coerced into the search for a "missing" family friend who has helped them in their past adventures.
Travel to a rugged yet beautiful landscape in Nepal will call on both their physical abilities and mental faculties as they embark on a supposed search and rescue mission. Will it lead them to the fabled Shangri-La? Assisted in their search by an expatriot Brit named Jack, clues eventually lead them to India and later Eastern Europe on a search for two entombed bishops and a Theurang disk.
Failure is not an option for the Fargos. They must rely on each other and their superior physical prowess and problem solving to successfully conclude their quest.
