In the year 1227, Genghis Khan, the greatest conqueror the world has ever known, is laid to rest. In order to keep the location of the grave a secret, all who witness the burial are brutally executed by the Khan’s royal family. All that is, except one…
Nearly eight centuries later, in a remote village in northern China, Dr. Maggie Townshend and a team of medical workers from the World Health Organization struggle to contain a mysterious disease that is killing both man and animal alike. When Dr. Brazos Steele, a veterinarian working with the U.S. Center for Biointelligence and Biocontainment, is called in to assist with the epidemiological investigation, he stumbles upon an intricate terrorist plot, one so horrifying and sadistic that it threatens the very existence of mankind itself.
Now the race is on to stop it. Steele finds himself confronted with a series of formidable enemies, including a ruthless Mongolian dictator and his sinister hatchet man, a deadly temptress, and a greedy Russian mobster whose lifelong obsession with the Khan’s lost treasure brings Russia and China to the brink of total war. It’s a contest marked by thrilling car chases, blatant assassinations, seductive betrayals, intimate romances, explosive gun battles, and surprising plot twists.
Time is running out, yet Steele’s determination remains strong. But will it be enough to avert disaster?
