About this product
- SynopsisBlack Windcontinued Dirk Pitt's meteoric career with one of Clive Cussler's most audacious, and well-received, novels yet: "Black Windmore than maintains the supercharged Cusslerian danger" (Kirkus Reviews). "Thriller fans will revel in this action-packed yarn" (Publishers Weekly). But now Cussler takes an extraordinary leap, with one of his most remarkable villains ever. 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. 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, his new novel is yet further proof that when it comes to adventure writing, nobody beats Clive Cussler.

Treasure of Khan by Clive Clussler and Dirk Cussler
The Cussler novels are my favorite. What is special about this book is that it is signed by both the authors. WOW. I have been reading Cussler novels since I found my first one "Treasure" in 1989 on a supermarket discount table for a $1.00. I have been a fan ever since and now the book is worth over $100.00. This book I received I have read twice before but what is special about this book is that it is signed by the Authors. Now I collect all first editions that are signed by the author. I want my own complete collection which I already had now I want the complete collection signed. This is great and hopefully I will meet the authors one day at one of the Cussler conventions.

Treasure of the Khan by Clive and Dirk Cussler
I enjoy reading anything written by Clive Cussler. He startes off with a bang and doesn't let the reader catch their breath until the last word. I can't think of any other author that can do this time after time. He also gives a little history (real or fiction) to get you in the mood. I'm sure that anybody who picks up one of his books, won,t be dissatisfied.

Treasure of Khan
Another great book by Clive Cussler. High action & believable. I have all Cussler's books & plan to go to his car museum in Arvada, Colorado to see the cars he features in his books. I also like the way he starts off his books with a historical portrayal & the way he winds it into his story.
