A couple of things that I didn't know about that the author, Michael Hickland, brings to light is the fact that the Mongols were very into Shamanic healing and spirituality, something not normal for nomadic people. And even though the history behind this story is centuries old, the author reminds us how geographically and politically important it is today. Not just for China and Russia for the entire world. The land itself is important and the treasure could really change the face of the superpower structure. All in all, this is a very well written book full of the twists and turns you would expect from any novel in the adventure genre. This is one book that could easily be transitioned to the big screen and attract many movie-goers.
In an isolated bit of Mongolia, Genghis Khan buried the spoils from his years of plundering and pillaging across Asia. Over the centuries, many diligent attempts were made to find the treasure, especially during World War II, but without luck.
Kate Barrows is an English paleontologist leading an expedition in present-day Mongolia looking for dinosaur fossils. One day, she stumbles aceoss a very old child's hunting bow, which, through satellite phone calls, is verified to be Khan's childhood bow (the treasure must be somewhere nearby). Russia and China are listening in on the phone calls, so they both amass troops on Mongolia's borders, along with sending "mining equipment" to the area.
Drew Moss, Kate's financial backer and an ex-Navy SEAL, heads to Mongolia with a group of CIA personnel, to take over security for the camp. Kate does not know about Khan's treasure, until now. Attempts are made by Russian and Chinese Special Forces personnel to infiltrate the camp. It becomes a race to see who can first open the underground storehouse. The Americans unearth the front door; of course, Khan thought to include a few booby traps. Who reaches the treasure first? Is World War III prevented?
This one is really good. It has plenty of action and political intrigue. It's plausible, and it's also short, and easy to read. It is very much recommended.

Exciting adventure - Kind of like a more literary version of Lora Stone's Tomb Raider or a Lady Indiana Jones adventures.Published 24 months ago by K
First off, this was an OK read. Don't let the three stars put you off. Mr. Hickland tries a little too hard to give too much detail in one area - and not enough in another. Read morePublished on February 3, 2014 by mary ann newton
