Produktbeschreibungen

From Publishers Weekly

Dirk Pitt's 19th adventure, the second collaboration between father and son Clive and Dirk Cussler (after 2004's Black Wind), offers a plot as credible as it is monstrous and the kind of exotic aquatic detail that amazes, informs and entertains. The action, and there's plenty of it, ranges from Siberia's Lake Baikal and the wilds of Mongolia to the Hawaiian islands. The treasure is that of Genghis and Kublai Khan, the great Mongolian conqueror and his grandson. The villain is a modern-day Mongol with dreams of restoring national power and pride. The heroes are Pitt, sidekick Al Giordino and Pitt's son and daughter, Dirk Jr. and Summer, all affiliated with Pitt's National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA). The exploits of Pitt and company, particularly their narrow escapes, tend toward the larger-than-life, but these are nicely balanced by down-to-earth explanations of such phenomena as seiche waves and oil seeps. 750,000 first printing.(Dec.)

From Booklist

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. Cussler has been writing the Pitt thrillers for 30-odd years, and he has the recipe down pat. (His son, Dirk, recently has assumed the role of coauthor.) Fans of the long-running series will hungrily gobble this dish of genre pudding, but those who find Cussler's work slick and formulaic won't discover anything here to change their minds. David Pitt

"I've never yet found drinking in a bar to be a waste of time....."
(Albert Giordino)

In the year of 1281 a "gods' wind" destroyed the fleet that has been sent by Kublai Khan for an invasion of Nippon.....

.....656 years afterwards the Imperial Japanese Army succeded in forcing ahead from her Chinese satellite state Mandshukuo, that was founded n 1932, to Shang-Tu and occupied the eastern part of the so called "Mongolia Interior".....

These historical facts are serving the authors for two opening short stories and background of the 19th adventure around Dirk Pitt, meanwhile married an head of the "National Underwater & Marine Agency" an his buddy Al Giordino. At the beginning of the plot (Which starts, regarding the publication of the novel, in the near future, namely June 2007) the two NUMA-veterans are saving a patrol exploration team from an enormous wave on the sibirian Baikal Lake. The overnight disappearance of the rescued explorers is followed by several mysterious earthquakes in the Gulf of Persia, which cause a big loss of petrol production and a huge rise in prizes. Meanwhile Dirk Sr. an Al pickup the trail that leads them in the Republic of Mongolia, Pitt Jr., his sister Summer and their colleague Jack Dahlgren are discovering an archeological sensation in the Keliuli Bay of Hawaii....

With "Treasure of Khan" Clive Cussler and his son Dirk again are presenting a plentiful action and tension loaded thriller that connects three different time levels in an intelligent way. Beside usual technical details and ironic elements the original and logical story this time also shows a cameo scene with Clive Cussler (together with his "Dachshund") as a bus driving development aid worker.

Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
As the book opens, Kublai Khan's forces are preparing to subdue Japan. But a storm intervenes and the invading fleet is destroyed. One of the ships makes it unexpectedly to a faraway isle . . . and eventually returns. Next, as the Japanese march through China in 1937, a British archeologist finds a clue to the burial site of Kublai Khan. From there, Dirk Pitt, Sr. and Al Giordino are on Lake Baikal in Siberia helping to measure lake currents when an underwater avalanche sets off a rolling tower of water that threatens a boat that doesn't hear the warning to clear the lake. Dirk and Al ride the rescue . . . but find themselves facing new threats before the next dawn. These new troubles lead towards Mongolia and a rendezvous with history. Along the way, the world faces another crisis that only Dirk and Al can solve. Before the book is over, you'll travel to the Middle East, across the Gobi desert, through the ocean next to the big island of Hawaii, and into the corridors of power in Washington, D.C.

Here's the good news: Treasure of Khan is mostly about Dirk Senior and Al Giordino rather than Dirk Junior and Summer. Here's the bad news: The swagger is mostly missing.

Treasure of Khan follows the proven Clive Cussler recipe for a Dirk Pitt Adventure, but in a coolly scientific way, rather than with passion. The physical action is often strangely cerebral rather than gut-wrenching. That's the main disappointment in this book.
