Summary
Thanks to the nanotechnology breakthrough that is Nexus, humans can finally link up mind to mind -- for better or for worse. For every person who wants to enhance Nexus, there are others who want to destroy it or exploit it for personal gain. Although graduate student Kade Lane's only motive is scientific progress, his (illegal) efforts to improve the technology bring him to the attention of the U.S. government. Blackmailed into spying on a Chinese researcher suspected of using Nexus to develop a mind-control program, Kade must rely on operative Samantha Cataranes if he's to succeed in his mission and escape with his life. - Description by Gillian Speace
