Dirk Pitt Sr. and his partner, Al Giordino, take center stage in this latest National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) adventure. The two are on Lake Baikal in Siberia when a massive earthquake disrupts their research. The rescue of a scientific survey vessel and its passengers reveals a sinister agenda somehow tied to the history of Genghis Khan, one of the world's greatest conquerors. As more earthquakes occur around the globe, major oil-supply pipelines are fractured, and the U.S. President and his staff watch as soaring gas prices create a worldwide panic. Can Dirk Sr. and Al repair the pipelines, deduce the culprit, and save the world?
