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.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauri | 2/15/2014

    " Extremely forgettable adventure, very flat characters. Only thing really of interest for me was the information and histories of Mongolia. It was too long but for the writers credit it has to be said at least the story held its ground good enough that it made me finish the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 1/28/2014

    " Not one of Cussler's finest but still manages to be entertaining and interesting. Couldn't believe that Al and Dirk went trekking through the desert...again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 1/22/2014

    " I really enjoy reading Cussler's books. I like Dirk Pitt much better than James Bond. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Wombold | 1/17/2014

    " Like all the Clive Cussler books I have read it was another exciting book. They are very easy to read and like "The Wrecker" it kept you on your toes every chpater. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 1/5/2014

    " part of a series of books. One of my favorite authors. STart with first book Pacific Vortex. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart | 1/5/2014

    " Clive Cussler's trademark is to link an historic event with a modern crisis. This time the great Mongolian leader Kublia Khan is mysteriously buried on his death in the twelfth century. A descendant of his is then at the heart of a modern plot to disrupt the world's oil supplies and make himself a fortune - a plot frustrated by the Pitt family in Mongolia and Hawaii eventually. One discussion, of interest in the passing, was an explanation of an oil expert who described the catastrophic reduction in oil exports and the subsequent rise in oil price to $130 dollars for a barrel as pushing the world to the brink of economic recession -this novel was published in 2007! "

    " Used to love these, I guess as a form of escapism. But I think they have become too outlandish. I've one more I already purchased to read and then I'm moving on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Quill | 12/29/2013

    " Although this isn't my favorite Dirk Pitt adventure, I have really enjoyed the bits of Mongolian and Chinese history laced throughout. Al and Dirk are the swashbuckling duo, riding out freak tsunami waves and escaping impossible peril. I always enjoy their adventures at sea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bubbiek2 | 12/23/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aaron | 12/22/2013

    " As you can see, I was travelling a lot in November "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daryl Watts | 11/22/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 11/14/2013

    " 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 Mike | 10/29/2013

    " very entertaining story, a little crazy at times but still a real page turner "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Corteway | 10/20/2013

    " The first Cussler book always gets you hooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl K | 9/12/2013

    " Good story but had more twists than my varicose veins. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alta Keim | 8/21/2013

    " We listened to this on the same road trip. Unfortunately it was not short. We didn't listen to the last CD. If the word gaze or gazed was going to be heard one more time, John and I would have both thrown up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 8/2/2013

    " Great enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TJ | 5/25/2013

    " A quick read. Thrilling book. A little over the top. How many times can Dirk Pitt escape death and find some amazing treasure. But still worth it, for a little mind candy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Redfox5 | 5/21/2013

    " 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! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trevor | 4/9/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherrie | 8/31/2012

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 4/6/2012

    " I always enjoy clive cussler books they are full of adventure and keep you interested "

    " I always enjoy these action adventure books with Dirk Pitt in them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 8/27/2011

    " Clive Baby always give me the "travel bug," picturing being in remote and exotic parts of the world. I learned more about Mongolia in this novel than I ever cared to know about it in my entire life! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison | 8/18/2011

    " A fun, easy read. I love these series - they are a mix between Indiana Jones and James Bond. They are predictable, yes, but they always take you on an adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Mcdonald | 6/15/2011

    " Now writing with his son. Seems to have a more flippant diologue during the acton scenes. One Clussler every six months is enough "

  • 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
