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.
