Mankind gets an upgrade
In the near future, the experimental nano-drug Nexus can link humans together, mind to mind. There are some who want to improve it. There are some who want to eradicate it. And there are others who just want to exploit it.
When a young scientist is caught improving Nexus, he's thrust over his head into a world of danger and international espionage - for there is far more at stake than anyone realizes.
From the halls of academe to the halls of power, from the headquarters of an elite US agency in Washington DC to a secret lab beneath a top university in Shanghai, from the underground parties of San Francisco to the illegal biotech markets of Bangkok, from an international neuroscience conference to a remote monastery in the mountains of Thailand - Nexus is a thrill ride through a future on the brink of explosion.

NEXUS is the first book in a trilogy. It can be read entirely on its own, with a satisfying ending. At the same time, the story continues in CRUX and finally concludes in the forthcoming APEX (due out later in 2014). If you enjoy NEXUS, consider checking out CRUX as well. I'm also delighted to announce that NEXUS has been optioned by PARAMOUNT PICTURES and film maker Darren Aronofsky (The Black Swan, The Fountain, Requiem for a Dream) to be adapted into a major motion picture! Thanks for reading my novels. I hope you enjoy them!About the Author:
