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.

A double-edged vision of the post-human."- The Wall Street Journal "A lightning bolt of a novel, with a sense of awe missing from a lot of current fiction."- Ars Technica "Starred Review. Naam turns in a stellar performance in his debut SF novel... What matters here is the remarkable scope and narrative power of the story."- Booklist "A superbly plotted high-tension technothriller ... full of delicious, thoughtful moral ambiguity ... a hell of a read."- Cory Doctorow "A gripping piece of near future speculation... all the grit and pace of the Bourne films."- Alastair Reynolds, author of Revelation Space "A sharp, chilling look at our likely future."- Charles Stross, author of Singularity Sky and Halting State "The most brilliant hard SF thriller I've read in years. Reminds me of Michael Crichton at his best."- Brenda Cooper, author of The Creative Fire "A rich cast of characters...the action scenes are crisp, the glimpses of future tech and culture are mesmerizing."- Publishers Weekly "Any old writer can take you on a roller coaster ride, but it takes a wizard like Ramez Naam to take you on the same ride while he builds the roller coaster a few feet in front of you."- John Barnes, author of Directive 51 "Michael Crichton-like."- SFX Magazine "An incredibly imaginative, action-packed intellectual romp!"- Dani Kollin, Prometheus Award-winning author of The Unincorporated Man "The only serious successor to Michael Crichton."- Scott Harrison, author of Archangel

Jerry Mitchell is on exercises off the coast of Pakistan when his submarine, the USS Michigan, is ordered to a rendezvous off the Iranian coast. Once there, disembarked SEALs---experts in seaborne commando operations---are to extract two Iranian nationals who have sensitive information on Iran's nuclear weapons program. While en route to shore, Michigan's mini-sub suffers a battery fire, killing one crew member and forcing the survivors---four SEALs and LCDR Mitchell---to scuttle their disabled craft and swim for shore. There they find the two Iranians waiting for them, but their attempts at returning to Michigan are thwarted by heavy Iranian patrol boat activity. When agents of Iran's secret police, VEVAK, appear, escape seems all but impossible. When Mitchell and his men find themselves surrounded by Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp troops, they create a bold plan to escape by sea. It's a desperate gamble, but it's the only way to get proof of the Iranian plot to the U.S. . . . and prevent a devastating new war.

"The Willington Secret" is about the perfect crime. People are being murdered and the "bad guys" have discovered how to dispose of the evidence without a trace. The story, set in the mid 1960's takes place in a small college town of Willington, Georgia, but this story could happen anywhere......even in your home town. What makes this story unique is that people committing the horrible crimes, blend perfectly into the Willington community fabric. The town citizens pass them on the streets, eat at the same restaurants, and belong to the same civic organizations, but suspect nothing. The good people of Willington don't realize that, these highly respected, pillars of the community have perfected a foolproof way to commit the ultimate crime and get away with it! The hero is Josh Novack, a student/athelete, whose only goal in life is to make it through college on an athletic scholarship. As a result of an incredible chain of events, Josh becomes committed and involved in the Willington Secret. Now he faces a deadly dilemma: expose the criminals before he becomes their next victim. The villians, however, are thoroughly entrenched in the town hierarchy. They are model citizens, people of power and and position, thus making Josh Novack's task of revealing their secret insurmountable. Although the story is fiction, the recipe used to erase all evidence that a crime had been committed is not. Take certain circumstances common to any community add some unscrupulous, greedy people, who just happen to be engaged in professions that provide the necessary cover, and the result is the formula for the perfect crime. The scariest part is that it could really happen!

A New York City homicide detective races against the clock to stop a terrorist attack on a world-famous Catskills resort during the Passover holiday When NYPD lieutenant Barry Wintraub starts investigating the murder of a Jewish Defense League member, he stumbles on a plot to blow up the New Prospect resort in the Catskills, where over one thousand of Israel’s top financial supporters will be celebrating Passover with their families and the guest of honor, an important Israeli general. Wintraub’s partner and captain aren’t convinced that the conspiracy exists, but the owner of the New Prospect acknowledges the detective’s hunch and invites him and his family to stay for the celebration. The Terrorist’s Holiday presents a unique take on extremist plots—the two terrorists, a handsome young man and his beautiful girlfriend, are morally challenged by what they are about to do . . . and they realize, perhaps too late, that an even more deadly threat awaits all who visit the world-class resort.

“I love this series!” “This is the best writing in decades.” You’ve pulled off the crime of the century. You’ve stolen billions. The global economy is in ruins, but you’ve become one of the richest men on the planet. Except you’ve somehow fallen into the clutches of the people you robbed — a band of spies, mercenaries, and dollar-hungry power brokers who’d just as soon gut you as look at you. That’s Sabot Mondragon’s predicament. He was a brilliant hacker, but now he’s a prisoner in some Central American hellhole, facing a very short and very painful future. And while he doesn’t know it, the fate of the world’s economy happens to be intertwined with his own. A global power grab of unprecedented scale is underway, and the consequences couldn’t be graver. Which is why Special Agent Sam Jameson is hot on his tail. She’s a brash, ballsy, and beautiful spy catcher, and she’s racing headlong into a buzz saw of intrigue and bad blood left over from the Cold War. Will Sabot survive his vicious kidnapping? Can Sam stop the world’s most secretive organization from pulling off a global coup? From the jungles of Central America to frozen Moscow, MINDSCREW’s explosive action, razor sharp plot, and smart, sexy characters will keep you turning pages well into the night. MINDSCREW is the final installment in conspiracy master Lars Emmerich’s DEVOLUTION trilogy, a collection of three #1 bestselling financial thrillers starring Sam Jameson. ———— Interview with #1 Bestselling Author Lars Emmerich Q: Who are your influences? A: Too many to list! I started out years ago as a Tom Clancy addict, and I thoroughly enjoy many of Nelson DeMille’s novels. I regularly read David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Barry Eisler, Michael Connelly, and John Grisham. James Patterson has redefined what it means to be a working author, and I read his stuff as well. My top picks are usually espionage and private detective novels, any of the thousands of thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and, of course, books featuring classic pulp heroes. And I’m greatly influenced by all sorts of nonfiction, as well. I read all the time, and I’m a bit of a magpie about the topics — science, economics, finance, politics, history, mathematics, engineering, biomechanics, medicine… It’s a big world out there, and I love learning more about it. Many of those topics find their way into my fiction, so I can justify it all as “research.” Q: The Sam Jameson series has become quite a phenomenon. What do you think has been the driving force behind the books’ success? A: I think Sam has something of a unique voice. She says the things we all wish we could say, and she gets away with it about half of the time. The other half of the time, not so much. I think she’s also a very human heroine. She has plenty of flaws and weaknesses, yet she accomplishes some amazing things. She’s kind of like every one of us in that regard, which resonates. Q: You have developed personal relationships with your readers over the years, which is unusual in the publishing business. Was that a conscious choice? A: Absolutely. Books are intimate things. They occupy a person’s mind and thoughts for hours at a time. Good books leave a lasting impression, and great books might even change the way we think about things, but all books are a relationship. I felt that Big Publishing did a great job of distributing novels, but at a very high cost — there was almost no way for a personal connection to form between writers and readers. But I always wanted a conversation. I wanted to learn from my readers, to hear what was on their minds, to listen to their criticism and hopefully improve the books I write. It’s been extremely rewarding, and I’m hopeful it can continue for years to come.
