The Last Khan

by Geoff Hammond

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 assassination attempts and searching for answers, calling in old favors and eluding government officials around the world. Meanwhile, Kongi Khan—the chairman of Zangshe Inc., a privately owned Chinese corporation providing the majority of the world’s supply of uranium—will stop at nothing to take control of this breakthrough 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 techie deep in the subbasement of CIA headquarters slowly uncovers Zangshe’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.
About the author
Geoff Hammond is a successful entrepreneur. Although he’s been writing for many years, The Last Khan is his first novel. Inexplicably, his extensive treatises related to business ventures and strategic misadventures somehow became the precursors for this seemingly ripped-from-the-headlines fictitious work. He and his wife, Jayne, divide their time between the pristine beaches of South Florida and the gentle, rolling hills of Tennessee.
