The Last Khan by Geoff Hammond shows the clash between world powers as they fight over acquisition of alternative sources of energy, thus creating a conflict of interest between the characters of the novel. The line between friends and enemies is dwindling as CIA operative Harry Carlyle discovers that the US government was selling secrets to the Chinese in exchange for a share of nuclear power, therefore corrupting its alliance and duty to its people. This treachery leaves one to question the cost at which a country decide to lose its integrity in order to gain world power?
Meanwhile the same occurs in China where there are two opposing forces at work. On one hand, Khan strives to return to power and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal, going to great lengths to make sure no one is a threat. While on the other hand Check, the Minister of Technology, has devoted his life to gaining compensation for the deaths of his family due to Zangshe’s toxic measures of disposing nuclear waste. Their conflict becomes a battle between good and evil as Check attempts to expose Khan throughout the novel. The Last Khan centers on this betrayal which creates a suspenseful atmosphere that leaves readers anxiously awaiting the characters’ next moves. The plot finds the protagonists questioning who to trust as thin lines are drawn during the conquest for alternative energy. Dr. Jeremiah Xavier finds out that his own research scientist deceived him, selling research details about the hybrid particle to the Chinese and later ordering that all aware of the discovery be killed in order to secure Chinese dominance over the energy. World leaders dedicate so much time and vigor into maintaining their power and influence, as shown through the Saudi’s who, in the novel, not only made a deal with the Americans at QPR, but also a secret alliance with the Chinese. How does this strive for domination define governments and its populations? It seems ironic that the fate of the world and the balance of power lies in the hands of an ex-black ops turned scientist, and a rogue CIA agent rather than the trusted governments people regularly depend on.
