It is the year 2027AD and in the city of Beirut, Lebanon, a man, his wife, and two children are assassinated in twin explosions. the assassinations are the latest in a series of killings spanning a period of two years and show no signs of abating. Hundreds of miles away in the ancient city of Samarkand, a jihadist command cell summons its members after learning of the latest incident. Who is behind these terrorist acts? What do they want? For what reasons? Though the answers are not obvious, Qutuz Sayfullah, leader of the command cell, believes they are the next targets. He has a theory that lies rooted in Mongol antiquity and a legend that has lived on for centuries. So begins a dire quest for Qutuz and his companions to stop these assassinations of jihadist leaders and their families. A quest which takes them into the den of the Blue Wolf--Mongolia, once a mighty empire stretching from the Sea of Japan to the gilded doors of Vienna. An empire that nearly erased Islam from the face of the earth. For Qutuz and his followers, the quest is one of life or death. For an American treasure hunter, Charlie Freedman--seeker of the tomb of the great Chinggis Qan--it is a matter of fame and fortune. For the Mongol peoples, it is the promise of a return to a glorious future and a prominent place on the world stage. And for Mongolias newly elected President, Temujin, it is a calling of time and destiny.
