Genghis Khan was the greatest conqueror of all time, who, at his peak, ruled an empire that stretched from the Pacific Ocean to the Caspian Sea. His conquests are the stuff of legend, his tomb a forgotten mystery. Until now.

When Dirk Pitt is nearly killed rescuing an oil survey team from a freak wave on Russia's Lake Baikal, it appears a simple act of nature. When the survey team is abducted and Pitt's research vessel is nearly sunk, however, it's obvious there's something more sinister involved. All trails lead to Mongolia, and a mysterious mogul who is conducting covert deals for supplying oil to the Chinese while wreaking havoc on global oil markets utilizing a secret technology. The Mongolian harbors a dream of restoring the conquests of his ancestors, and holds a dark secret about Genghis Khan that just might give him the wealth and power to make that dream come true.

From the frigid lakes of Siberia to the hot sands of the Gobi Desert, Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino find intrigue, adventure, and peril while collecting clues to the mysterious treasure of Xanadu. But first, they must keep the tycoon from murder - and the unleashing of a natural disaster of calamitous proportions.

Filled with breathtaking suspense and brilliant imagination, this novel is yet further proof that when it comes to adventure writing, nobody beats Clive Cussler.

Take another thrill ride with Dirk Pitt.

    Another great adventure drama from Cussler, keep them coming! Scott Brick brings his stories to life like no other.

    Another fast action drama by Clive Cussler. Always enjoy looking for when and where Cussler shows up as himself in the book. Sort of like looking for Alfred Hitchcock in his films. Enjoyed the bits and pieces of Mongol history. Had just finished reading a two volume book about Mongol history so enjoyed listening to items I had already learned about.

    I am a big fan of Clive Cussler but do not care for the books that he shares authorship with. This was an OK book but the abridgment is bad. You can actually tell in parts where some of the story was edited out.

    Probably the last Cussler book I'll ever listen to. He used to be amusing, but he's gotten out of hand with his plots and amazing rescues. And Dirk Cussler ? Really.
