Teresa holds the secret to the location of Shambala, an underground valley of enteral life. In the Altai Mountains on the border between Kazakhstan, Mongolia and southern Siberia, Max is not the only one after his unscrupulous mother-in-law. A dying Siberian, mining titan with the money to move mountains and a rogue army, is more determined than ever to find Teresa and the fabled treasure of Genghis Khan.

On the journey to Shambala, Max is aided by an ancient Kazak, his wife’s philandering, first-husband, a local, lady pugilist and an ex-rock and roll roadie, smuggler king. Madness ensues as another Max Dean adventure tale blazes across continents and a millennium or two.
