What happens when an insider to the oil industry authors a thriller about the future of energy? The Sunset Conspiracy, the tightly woven story by Steve Hadden, former head of exploration and production for Devon Energy and a former Vice President of Texaco.

This oil executive turned author delivers a credible and thought-provoking story about an unlikely pair of resilient heroes – Nathan Robbins and Jessica Adams – who battle Big Oil and a corrupt U.S. Senator in order to bring a new energy source to light that can change the world overnight—if they can stay alive long enough to tell their story.

Hadden, who traveled the globe as a leading oil executive, says, “I’ve always been intrigued by the power and wealth oil wields on the world stage. I wanted to explore what would happen if a few unscrupulous gatekeepers of the world's oil reserves were faced with a breakthrough in science that could immediately end oil's 100 year reign." He continues, "The Sunset Conspiracy is a thriller with a fascinating premise but it’s also an action-packed story of friendship, betrayal, greed and triumph.”

The Sunset Conspiracy, published by Telemachus Press, has already been picked up by Amazon, Kindle, Barnes and Noble, Nook, Apple's iBooks, Smashwords, Diesel and Kobo. A synopsis and a preview are available at Early reviews call Hadden’s book “gripping,” “well written,” and “downright frightening.”

Hadden already has two more thrillers – Genetic Imperfections and Swimming Monkeys – schedule to come to print later in 2012.

“My goal is to deliver a fun, entertaining read with a thought provoking premise and a page-turning plot,” said Hadden.
