Treasure of Khan

By Clive Cussler (co-authored by his brother, Dirk Cussler).

Following on from Cussler’s last Dirk Pitt thriller, Black Wind, he takes his avid fans into the lands and legend of Genghis Khan.

When 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.

However, when the survey team is abducted and Pitt’s research vessel nearly sunk, it becomes obvious that there is 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 with acts of sabotage.

The Mongolian dreams 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 and, putting a carefully placed spanner in the plans of the Mongolian Mogul.

A thumping great page-turner that keeps the adrenalin going throughout.

Available in hardcover at 26 euros.
