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

"Dirk Pitt returns in a fast-paced adventure that takes the latter-day James Bond from a Russian lake to the sands of Mongolia in search of the treasure of Xanadu. Meanwhile, a murderous tycoon is bent on world domination, and only Pitt and his crack NUMA team can stop him." (Booklist)

    "Another fantasy adventure for the Pitts"

    Good action with somewhat unrealistic escapes from dangers (as usual).
    A good relaxing listen from a reliable author

    Story
    "This book is tooooo long"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book. The story is, as always, very interesting, but it is too long and too many details.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It is unexpected, but should be sooner


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

    GREAT!!! Scott Brick is the best narrator I've ever listened to


    Did Treasure of Khan inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to listen more Clive Cussler's audio books

    Story
    "hidden adventure"

    Clive Cussler was my father's favortie author, and Dirk Pitt was his favorite adventurer. This alone was the reason why i tryed this book. The story was action packed and thrilling... once it got going. This tale started at almost a snail's pace peppering in a few quick bits of action to still keep you interested but there was alot of build up. this being said however once the story reached its climax it was like riding the craziest thrill ride of action and adventure. i probably would have prefered the abridged version just to bypass some of the more mundane aspects of the story since there was alot of them. as for the narrator i was not a fan i felt that he failed to bring the heroes off the page and give them that third dimension. he did voices for the charictors but they seemed unimaginative and simmilar sounding unless that charictor had an accent. Dirk and Al, the heroes, sounded like a disco scumbag. i half exspected them to finish their lines with "We are two wild and crazy guys!". any charictor with an accent was preformed lazily and almost in a racial tone. in summary god action, slow story, terrible narration.

    "Another amazing Cussler adventure/mystery."

    I love these stories that pull together the past with the current issues in such vivid imagination like only Cussler can create. Portrayed by Brick's empathy and emphasis makes me feel like I'm there in the middle living the whole experience.

    "Not Cussler's best but still fun"

    Cussler really loves to jump around and build slowly, and sometimes it gets a little distracting and boring. Also the action was even more unbelievable and unrealistic than usual with slightly excessive cute banter. Overall still enjoyable. Love the subject matter.
