Scott Brick narrates with exacting diction and high energy to propel this thriller from Siberian lakes to the Gobi Desert. Anyone hoping for an airtight plot will be disappointed. But many listeners won't care because the action is warp speed and over-the-top. Scott Brick narrates with the maneuverability of a 1953 Czech JAWA 500 OHC motorcycle--like the very one driven at perilous speeds by hero Dirk Pitt. Facing down the descendants of Genghis Khan, he takes on all comers and surmounts all obstacles as he seeks to uncover the location of the lost treasure of Xanadu before it falls into the hands of a megalomaniac tyrant. What fun! K.A.T. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
