The world's oil supplies have dwindled, the balance of power has shifted, and the search for alternative fuel sources -- and ultimately world control -- has become dangerous and deadly. When Dr. Jeremiah Xavier witnesses the terrifyingly destructive force of a covert experiment on a radical new fuel source gone wrong at a research facility located deep in the Black Hills of South Dakota, he finds himself narrowly dodging for answers, calling in old favors and eluding government officials around the world. Meanwhile, Kongi Khan -- the chairman of Zangshe Inc., a privately owned Chines corporation providing the majority of the world's supply of uranium -- will stop at nothing to take control of this break-through discovery, and will even go as far as using this potential but unstable energy source as a weapon of mass destruction. His supporters will do everything in their power to ensure his success -- even if it turns out to be their downfall. On the other end of the spectrum, the revered and respected Chinese Minister of Technology has made it his mission to halt Zangshe's sloppy operations once and for all. And the race is on. The pace quickens when a technie deep in the sub-basement of CIA headquarters slowly uncovers Zanghe's deadly plot, and as a result, Dr. Xavier finds himself on a small boat in the Gulf of Mexico with the world's fate in his hands.

Blockbuster plot . . . a heart-pounding thriller. Twisting and turning at every level. This story will keep you so riveted that you'll need to keep food and drink close by. --teven Joseph Keeler, Member of the Council for Emerging National Security Affairs
Amazingly powerful imagery about the world and intensely personal descriptions of the people in a gripping story. Fiction so real you wouldn't know it. Geoff Hammond's writing in this book makes him the new master of shock and awe. --Bob Weiner, White House and Congress National Columnist, former White House National Drug Policy Spokesman, Former Spokesman for House Government Operations Committee, Former House Aging Committee Chief of Staff Under Florida Congressman Pepper
This is a novel for those who think clearly and relish the thrill of plausible, orderly suspense. In The Last Khan, one is brought into the arcane world of Planckian atoms and, at the outset, might fear the mind will go hurl-a-whirl in contemplation. No worries are warranted, however, because the author writes with Saganesque clarity and allows one to glide over the physics. . . It is not too much to say that one is left on razor's edge by the logic and skillful narrative until the final few paragraphs of the work. --Charles L. Cox, Ph.D. in European History
