Rescuing an oil survey team from a freak wave on Russia's Lake Baikal is all in a day's work for adventurers Dirk Pitt and partner Al Giordino. Yet when their ship is sabotaged and the survey team vanishes, Pitt is forced to get to the bottom of a mystery with far-reaching consequences.
Soon he's on his way to Mongolia. There, a powerful and ruthless business tycoon holding an astonishing secret about Genghis Khan is hoping to emulate the legend's greatest conquests - but on a global scale!
With the legacy of Khan and the lost treasures of Xanadu as the prize and the future security of the world at stake, Dirk Pitt for one isn't going to stand idly by . . .

Treasure of Khan
Full of twists turns and action scenes our hero engages in the heroic task of stopping disruption to world oil supplies by a wicked descendant of Ghengis Khan.
With plot elements scattered over the Arab world, Mongolia and Hawaii to mention a few, the reader is in a constant Kaleidoscopic
of changing lanes. Action a plenty but credibility zero.
The hero Dirk Pitt is superman crossed with James Bond in a purer than snow super hero suit with air tanks.
Totally unbelievable and in the end a struggle to finish.
