Wrath of the Gods is the eighth book in the epic 'Nexus' series, part of the growing Star Crusades universe that chronicles humanity's first steps away from Alpha Centauri and beyond. The opening battles of the bloodiest war in human history have been fought, and now the enemy spreads from world to world, exterminating all before them. This is no war for territory or resources, it is one of genocide. The valiant efforts of the Alliance, Helions, and Khreenk make the Biomechs pay a terrible price, yet still they continue onwards. Each of these massive assaults is being conducted from deep inside their fortified Arks, the command centers of the Biomech campaign. These vast behemoths combine the capabilities and firepower of battleships with the size and resources of entire space stations. With trouble brewing between the AnicinAbe and Byotai, there are few remaining allies to counter this bloodthirsty invasion. Two more Biomech fleets make their way to the planets of Micaya and Libuscha, and the remnants of the assault force around Eos turn their attention on the dormant Black Rift. It falls to the heroes of the Great Uprising to rally forces from Mars to Hades to meet this challenge. Admiral Anderson and General Rivers assemble every combat unit they can find to fight the war. At the same time, Spartan and Teresa Morato solicit the aid of an ancient race, one that has even greater reason to bring down their old foe. Together they hope to assemble a mighty host in T'Karan, one that can unleash a counterattack and eradicate the enemy once and for all. The 9-book Star Crusades Nexus series includes: Legions of Orion (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 1) Machine Gods (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 2) Heroes of Helios (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 3) The Great Betrayal (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 4) Prophecy of Fire (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 5) Call to Arms (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 6) Battle for Helios (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 7) Wrath of the Gods (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 8) The Black Rift (Star Crusades Nexus, Book 9)

The Black Rift is the ninth and final book in the epic 'Nexus' series, part of the growing Star Crusades universe that chronicles humanity's first steps away from Alpha Centauri and beyond. The Prophecy of Fire has revealed itself in the shape of the great machine enemy, the Biomechs. Their limitless numbers of ships, soldiers, and creatures are ready for the war to end wars. Each of them waits patiently for their chance to come through the unstable Black Rift under the command of their remarkable new ally. A glimpse of this world-ending force has already been seen, and it has led to a series of disasters on many worlds. Even the stalwart defenders of humanity begin to look inwards, and for a leader that can save them from the fury of the machines. Few doubt the Biomechs' resolve, but there is now little remaining to guard the ancient gateway to the domain of the enemy. As the allies wait for the arrival of the hated machines, they are forced to defend the burned out worlds of Eos, Spascia, and Helios Prime. The outcast Biomechs of the Nexus hear the call of their kin, and hurl themselves at every ship and soldier in a final bloody assault that could end the war in a matter of days. The allied forces of six different races cling to their trenches and earthworks in massive sieges, while in space the fleet fights bloody engagements that leaves hundreds of ships in ruins. The inhabitants of the Nexus finally realize that the Prophecy of Fire was true, and when the Black Rift finally opens, there might be little left for the few remaining warriors to fight for.

Ever dynamic, organized crime continues to change. Efforts to combat one aspect of the phenomenon, the American Mafia, have reached high levels of prosecutorial success--resulting in a decline in the organization's relative importance. Meanwhile, criminal organizations operating on a global scale have become more sophisticated and more threatening, and additional crime groups have been added to the pantheon we refer to as organized crime. Reflecting changes that have occurred in recent years, this edition updates information and analyses of organized crime as well as efforts to deal with it.
