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.

Professional reviews

"Naam offers a mind-bending story about a reality right around the corner. As modern medicine has breakthroughs in mind-altering drugs, telepathy, and mind control, is mankind civilized enough to use them wisely? Kade Lane holds the secret to a drug called nexus, which allows people to share their consciousness but could also be used to turn people into robotic killers. Now, two very similar organizations are fighting over the formula and trying to get Kade to work for them, but which is the less evil? Narrator Luke Daniels's performance allows listeners to follow the complicated story, even with all its pseudoscientific terminology. He keeps the listener riveted as the powerful plot unfolds, forcing listeners to consider what they would do if faced with Kade's choices. M.S. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
