Treasure of Khan is Clive Cussler's nineteenth Dirk Pitt thriller.

From the frigid lakes of Siberia to the hot wastes of the Gobi desert, Dirk Pitt is on the trail of fabled treasure . . .

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 is the nineteenth of Clive Cussler's bestselling Dirk Pitt novels - the series that also includes Shock Wave and, his first novel, Mayday - and is co-authored with his son Dirk Cussler.

Praise for Clive Cussler:

'Cussler is hard to beat' Daily Mail

From Publishers Weekly

09 October 2006 – Dirk Pitt's 19th adventure, the second collaboration between father and son Clive and Dirk Cussler (after 2004's Black Wind), offers a plot as credible as it is monstrous and the kind of exotic aquatic detail that amazes, informs and entertains. The action, and there's plenty of it, ranges from Siberia's Lake Baikal and the wilds of Mongolia to the Hawaiian islands. The treasure is that of Genghis and Kublai Khan, the great Mongolian conqueror and his grandson. The villain is a modern-day Mongol with dreams of restoring national power and pride. The heroes are Pitt, sidekick Al Giordino and Pitt's son and daughter, Dirk Jr. and Summer, all affiliated with Pitt's National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA). The exploits of Pitt and company, particularly their narrow escapes, tend toward the larger-than-life, but these are nicely balanced by down-to-earth explanations of such phenomena as seiche waves and oil seeps. 750,000 first printing.

Customer Reviews

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.
