Publisher's Summary

Former Marine Raider Max Ahlgren is on a perilous mission for the FBI. He might not live to collect his payment....

After enduring a hellish ordeal in South America, Max Ahlgren is on the hunt for one of the men who murdered his family. Desperate for leads, he enlists the help of an old friend from the Corps who is now with the FBI. But the favor doesn't come cheap - in return, Max is tasked with helping a fierce yet inexperienced female FBI agent escort a brilliant computer programmer, his young son, and his AI software Nexus safely across the country. Nexus is the most advanced AI processor in the world, able to access any computer network, no matter how secure.

But delivering Nexus may be more dangerous than Max ever imagined. From the neon streets of Vegas to the crumbling facade of Washington DC, Max's cunning and combat skills are put to the test by foreign agents, contract killers, and rogue operatives who will stop at nothing to steal the technology. He doesn't have a choice. Nexus is the key to unlocking his dark past and bringing his own brand of justice to his family's killers.

They want Nexus. Max is going to give them a war.

Max Ahlgren returns in the internationally best-selling Crucible series. A must-listen for science fiction and thriller fans alike, NEXUS is a runaway freight train of action and suspense!

Good book

This book was good. I do miss the scfi/horror book this series started as. He should have started a second series of books for the CIA side.

5 hrs is ridiculous for a full price book!

only complaint is the shortness. This book should have been 1/4 the price. I will NOT do this again.

This one tugged at my heart strings a bit!

THIS one is my favorite one so far. it made me want to cry, Max is such a good character, and suitably compassionate when its right. but, hmmm i think this story may not be over yet, because...where did that rose at the very end come from????

Great Entry in Series

Great entry although I definitely missed the more horrific themes of the first 2 books

The last in the series thankgoodness

This book was clearly phoned in. The book is incredibly short. Max at his old tricks. If you have the courage to read the whole serie. Then I suppose you could read this but be prepared for a short boring read. This series could have been much better.

Weakest of all the novels

It starts of great but leaves you high & dry. This was literally a solo mission & I felt that it was the weakest compared to the other novels. I won’t give any spoilers away but let’s just say the “kid” was a highly unused character filled with plot holes.
