Contact with an alien race, the Gliese, has been made, but communication is impossible. There is trade, but on seemingly inexplicable terms; anti-gravity technology was traded for a bicycle tyre. As we begin to colonize the stars, we're still dependant on the mysterious aliens who we still do not understand. It falls upon the unlikely team of a conceptual artist, Marc, and assassin, Kara, to embark on a mission that will unearth the mystery of the Gliese.

"It’s plausible, unpredictable, and thoroughly entertaining” Publishers Weekly on Netherspace It's half-way through the twenty-first century. Contact with alien races was made forty years ago, but communication turns out to be impossible. We don't share a way of thinking or common sensory inputs with the aliens, let alone a grammar. But there is trade, done on a basis of putting things on a table and taking them off again until agreement is reached. There is no obvious pattern to the trades. Alien anti-gravity technology was traded for a bicycle tyre. Human science has become fixated on understanding alien technology – with little success. We can learn what it does and how to operate it. We don’t know how it works – or how to fix it. The world may be a better place but it's no longer our own. We may be colonizing the stars, but we're dependant on inexplicable alien Faster-Than-Light technology. This is controlled by aliens we call the Gliese and is the only constant trade: FTL engines for human beings, any age or condition, as long as they're alive. We don't know what happens to them, but rumour says they are taken to a Nirvana where all illnesses will be healed. Their families are also very well compensated. Interstellar immigration and trade are central to the world's economy. There is no shortage of volunteers.

Aliens came to Earth forty years ago. Their anatomy proved unfathomable and all attempts at communication failed. But through trade, humanity gained technology that allowed them to colonise the stars. The price: live humans for every alien faster-than-light drive. Kara's sister was one of hundreds exchanged for this technology, and Kara has little love for aliens. So when she is drafted by GalDiv - the organisation that oversees alien trades - it is under duress. A group of colonists have been kidnapped by aliens and taken to an uncharted planet, and an unusual team is to be sent to negotiate. As an ex-army sniper, Kara's role is clear. But artist Marc has no combat experience, although the team's pre-cog Tse is adamant that he has a part to play. All three know that success is unlikely. For how will they negotiate with aliens when communication between the species is impossible?

Die Vereinigten Staaten, China und viele andere Länder werden von Aufständen erschüttert. Geheimnisse, Lügen und der technische Fortschritt haben auf der ganzen Welt Schockwellen ausgelöst, die von Land zu Land und von Kopf zu Kopf ziehen. Polizeistreitkräfte liefern sich Kämpfe mit neural vernetzten Protestanten. Das Militär wurde mobilisiert, überall droht die politische Ordnung zusammenzubrechen. Die durch die Nano-Droge Nexus ausgelöste Revolution hat begonnen. Innerhalb dieser Wirren und in einer Welt, in der die Kinder jener tiefgreifenden Veränderungen des menschlichen Wesens an Einfluss gewinnen, verfolgt eine totgeglaubte Wissenschaftlerin einen Rachefeldzug, sämtliche elektronisch gesteuerten Systeme des Planeten unter ihre Kontrolle zu bringen und die Welt nach ihrem Bild neu zu erschaffen. Nichts wird jemals wieder so sein wie zuvor. Ramez Naams Nexus-Trilogie gehört zu den wichtigsten Science-Fiction-Werken unserer Zeit und lotet auf geradezu bewusstseinsverändernde Weise die philosophischen, politischen und nicht zuletzt post-humanistischen Folgen der Verschmelzung von Mensch und Technik aus. Mit APEX erscheint nun der dritte und abschließende Teil der Saga in deutscher Sprache. "Gut. Erschreckend gut." [Wired] "Ein hervorragend aufgebauter High-Tech-Thriller voller herrlich nachdenklicher moralischer Ambivalenz ... ein verdammt guter Roman." [Cory Doctorow] "Reich an Charakteren und knackigen Actionszenen. Besonders die Ausblicke auf die Welt von Morgen sind faszinierend." [Publishers Weekly] "Ähnlich wie Michael Crichton beweist Naam ein Gespür dafür, hochaktuelle wissenschaftliche Thesen über das Medium eines massenkompatiblen Pageturners zu vermitteln." [SFX Magazine] "Ramez Naam ist der einzig wahre Nachfolger von Michael Crichton." [Scott Harrison, Autor von Archangel]

Erik Knight, a small time private investigator, always knew he was different from everybody else. Keener senses, heightened awareness and an enhanced physical strength that could be called upon by his sheer will. Erik becomes involved with a team of high profile investigators and local police trying to locate a girl who was kidnapped in the middle of a playground amongst dozens of adults and children. None of the adults saw anything and what the children claim to have seen is too far fetched to be believed. The search evolves into a full-scale manhunt into the dark and desolate woodlands of the Hopedale Mountain. After a lethal encounter and a fatality, Erik, the investigators and police realize that what they’re dealing with isn’t a man and possibly isn’t of this world. What they’re dealing with is a sentient evil that has an appetite for young children.
