Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

With calm, but rising intensity, Richard Ferrone reads the adventure story of Genghis and Kublai Kahn, a lost tomb, hidden treasure, and undiscovered oil fields in China. Although Ferrone's pacing is careful and understated, and his characterizations incorporate gender differences and ages with vocal nuances, he can't overcome the deficiencies inherent in the book--an unbelievable plot and formulaic writing. Although the story begins with the promise of adventure, it quickly devolves and begins to seem merely repetitive. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
