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.

    " Clive Cussler's writing I enjoy always a pleasure to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 2/12/2014

    " decent adventure novel. Not one of his best but not one of his worst either. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary | 2/11/2014

    " Every now and then you just need to check in with Mr. Cussler to find out what Dirk Pitt has been doing lately. The Treasure of Khan was acceptable for this genre, but definitely not one of Mr. Cussler's best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisha | 2/6/2014

    " I really enjoy all the culural aspects & explanations "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 thebutterflycastle | 2/6/2014

    " was ok.. i don't like when media tries to dehumanize characters to make them "worthy" of death "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony Fisher | 1/31/2014

    " Although the novels can be a bit predictable and have a similar mix of: historic fact updated into a fictional discovery often with a Mr Big or Corporation trying to take over the world I still love the research used by Mr Cussler to bring the events to life. I know the gun-ho action etc is very tongue in cheek and unbelieveable- a cross between Bond and Biggles there is still a good entertainment value in each book. This book has the historical facts based around Gengis Khan leading to a treasure hunt. Again the action takes place in various countries mixed in with some interesting travel guide type information and colour. As I said most of his books follow similar structures and format but I do enjoy the overall effect and the fantasy of Cussler's novels the pure get away from it all attitude. Very entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ang | 1/28/2014

    " This book was pretty well thought out and had a lot of detail that was fun to check up on. I think I will have to read a couple more of his books to really get a feel for the author's style. Maybe once I am used to the style and reread this book in a year or two I will add more stars to my rating. For a modern adventure novel it was clean of sex, excessive swearing and language--but I got quite an education in various alcoholic beverages. Would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 May | 1/14/2014

    " Enjoyable, entertaining, fun, but the plot really does stretch it quite a bit :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherrie | 12/25/2013

    " I only read the Dirk Pitt series from Clive Cussler. They are all kinda on the same line, disaster, save the damsel in distress, sleep with the damsel in distress, save the world and find the treasure. But, I have to read them all because they are well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trevor | 11/17/2013

    " Sometimes I just want to be entertained... a little action/adventure from Cussler does the trick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bubbiek2 | 10/7/2013

    " I am absolutely IN LOVE with the DIRK PITT character! Where are all our heros??? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Obisbooks | 9/15/2013

    " Good mindless fun. Genghis and Kublai Khan and oil crisis and Dirk to save the day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 8/30/2013

    " Mongolian rich man had Khan's lost body and found oil he wanted to sell to th eChinese in exchange for exorbitant rates and independence for Mongolians. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Corteway | 8/26/2013

    " The first Cussler book always gets you hooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beauchampt | 8/3/2013

    " How does he do it? Clive keeps you guessing and even adds a guest, himself as usual. This book mirrors the exciting news about Gangis Khan's burial site. This is book mixed new technology with past history into a books that keeps you guessing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 7/24/2013

    " Vintage Cussler with fast-paced adventures on the high seas. A fun read. "

    " awsome book, ive got it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellie | 1/27/2013

    " After reading some deeper books, I needed a break and some mind candy. Clive Cussler always fits that bill. Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino are modern day adventurers who get into impossible situations and keep me entertained the whole time. I can always count on Clive Cussler to deliver a fun book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daryl Watts | 11/11/2012

    " It's a "guilty pleasure" read. Cussler's books are pretty predictable and reflect a worldview that is a little askew from my Christian one. But the good guy always wins. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 10/29/2012

    " An entertaining adventure! Great easy reading that keeps you engrossed. "

    " Dirt Pitt is back and he is on the trail of Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan. This is fast paced and an easy read. You may need to suspend some hold on reality, but the fiction is fun. I always enjoy the adventures of Dirk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgan | 12/20/2011

    " His books are all so good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Opa | 10/12/2011

    " This is an exciting adventure novel with no dirty words in over 500 pages. I even learned some history about the Kahn family, both Genghis and Kubli. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Reynolds | 7/26/2011

    " The motorcycle in the desert is great, but neither it nor the plane make it home to the Hanger... shocking to me, but thank heavens something does.. find out yourself, lol. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 7/8/2011

    " Typical Cussler adventure book...entertaining in a James Bond kind of way. Good vacation book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alessandro | 6/13/2011

    " Troppo lungo. La storia è interessante (anche l'introduzione lunga), ma diventa dispersivo e con ben poca dell'azione che ci si aspetta da un libro di Dirk Pitt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 6/11/2011

    " A good adventure story and very timely, earthquakes and oil. Dirk Cussler is now helping his dad write so there is a slight difference detectable in the writing style. Still, this is a fun story and a great mindless escape. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 2/25/2011

    " Vintage Cussler with fast-paced adventures on the high seas. A fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dion | 1/21/2011

    " Some interesting elements, but a bit drawn out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 umarul | 1/14/2011

    " Clive cussler memang Jawaranya bikin cerita petualangan!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 12/29/2010

    " Dirk Pitt is such a lovable character. I like it how he puts his life on the line for total strangers and not only that, but goes way out of his way to save them! I also like it how in his books Cussler puts himself as one of the minor characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nic | 12/27/2010

    " I really need to give up these Dirk Pitt adventures because they just get worse with each one I read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 thebutterflycastle | 12/22/2010

    " was ok.. i don't like when media tries to dehumanize characters to make them "worthy" of death "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 12/19/2010

    " Good quick read. Got a couple of the charactors confused in the middle, but it all worked out once i got it & enjoyed the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Craig | 9/23/2010

    " I like Cussler books, they are fun to read, they occupy the 4 hour plane trip really well. Don't hope for more than that from them, BUT, that said, this book just had too many improbable situations that they escaped from. I know, that is his formula, but this one, well, just too many. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Redfox5 | 9/6/2010

    " Another good Dirk Pitt adventure! I didn't relise the earlyer books were following Dirk's father, I got a bit confushed when they started mentioning both of them. Good exciting plot. Recommened! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherrie | 8/30/2010

    " I only read the Dirk Pitt series from Clive Cussler. They are all kinda on the same line, disaster, save the damsel in distress, sleep with the damsel in distress, save the world and find the treasure. But, I have to read them all because they are well written. "
