Publisher's Summary

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.

Take another thrill ride with Dirk Pitt.

What the Critics Say

    "Another good Pitt story"

    For new reads of Pitt novels this will be quit enjoyable. I found the performance excellent. As usual Summer comes across as a bit ditsy and written by a male chauvinist and preformed that way was well. Over all a good time was had by all

    Always enjoyable. Particularly enjoyed the descriptions of Hawaii. Also enjoyed the reference to China's seemingly insatiable need for oil.

    Story
    "Brick's narration helps make this a great story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm relatively new to audio books, usually reading print and on kindle.

    This is a very good audiobook, it's long, suspenseful with lots of little cliffhangers (and a few big ones). The dialogue between the main characters is often witty and that keeps the story light and easy to listen to.

    The narration by Scott Brick is just awesome and i'm looking forward to listening to his other books. Since i'm new to audiobooks, i don't know if it's odd to seek out the narrator as much as the author...? :)



    What was one of the most memorable moments of Treasure of Khan?

    The two main characters being chased into the Gobi desert and their trek on foot through this desolate land.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Love it. He plays the various character voices very well, i will seek out some of his other narrations because i think his voice helps make the story in this format


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed out loud a couple of times :)
