Genghis Khan the greatest conqueror of all time, who at his peak ruled an empire four times the size of Alexander the Great’s, a vast expanse which stretched from the Pacific Ocean to the Caspian Sea. And now somebody wants it back.
Dirk Pitt and the NUMA crew are about to come head to head with their most dangerous ever enemy. A mysterious Mongolian mogul harbors a dream of restoring the conquests of ancient Mongolia.
