James Andrews finally appears to be catching a break. After years of searching for Genghis Khan's tomb, he unearths a bone during a dig on Burkhan Khaldun, Mongolia's holy mountain. After tests suggest the bone belongs to Genghis Khan, Andrews and his colleague Abbey Conrad follow the strands of the bone's DNA back through time and begin to unlock the secrets of thirteenth century Eurasia. Mongolia is in the midst of turmoil. As the world's superpowers vie for control of it's vast resources and open lands, Andrews's quest takes center stage. Past and present collide, revealing ancient truths along with a web of deception that tears Andrews's life apart and pushes the world to the brink of war. Part historic fiction, part archaeological mystery, and part political thriller, The Baljuna Covenant tells stories of a poor boy's rise to the heights of world power, of two friends and unimagined betrayal, and of a secret kept for over half a millennia.
