Genghis Khan-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 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.
