Treasure of Kahn

This book throws its readers right into the adventurous time of Genghis Khan. Kahn¿s royal ships, filled with treasure, are sunk by a sudden massive hurricane while he is trying to invade his neighbors. Fast forward into modern time times when a Mongolian oil company magnate, Borjin, is mysteriously building his fortune for his company, Avarga, around the site of this sunken treasure.

Enter Dirk Pit and his friend Al Gordino, who are working for America in the drilling business. Their adventures are set in a present time when all of the world¿s major oil countries are losing oil because their refineries are being destroyed. Dirk and Al are working on a huge body of water in Russia when they are hit by a tsunami that nearly kills them. After that, they notice that Avarga comes out of nowhere and finds oil where no one expected it. At the same time, a survey team goes missing in Siberia. This starts Dirk and Al out to solve a mystery about how the oil company came to be and where their missing friends from the survey team went. Little did they know the danger they were facing. Dirk and Al race to save their friends and stop the oil company from taking control of all oil in the Middle East.

I rated this book a ten out of ten because it was so exciting and just a fun book to read. This was the kind of book that you did not want to put down. If you like history and adventure, you¿ll enjoy it!

OK, Dirk and Giordano get stranded in the desert and walk there way out instead of building a land catamaran out of crashed airplane parts, but they still found the crashed airplane. Not too much different than Sahara. Read this tale of ancient sailing ships and too-big ego bad guy with dreams of empire before. Other than a trip in Mongolia this time and help from the Russian agents there wasn't much new. You can skip this one and wait for a better book.

For all its formulaic gung-ho-ery and impossible black and white villains and heroes, this is an enjoyable book. Good for a quick read (don't take the time to stop and think about the plot or characters) the narrative barrels along with such exuberance you become caught up in it and finally, when you realise you will not be thrown out of the car, you start to enjoy the buzz.

Typical Dirk Pitt - you either hate 'em or love 'em.

Good most of the way, the story drags about 3/4 thorough and is really unbelievable. Nice twist in the very end.

What can I say I love every single book of the Dirk Pitt Novel and this one is no different. As soon I start reading them I can't stop -

Again, neither the best nor worst in the series. There was less underwater action in this story than most. Also, although the story was "new", for the first time in reading a Dirk Pitt novel, I kept feeling as if nothing was "new" and that I'd encountered each situation before. Also, I would have liked more character development. Oddly, the book focused almost entirely on Dirk (senior) and Al while Dirk (junior) and Summer had only a minor, near-cameo appearance.
