In a galaxy of cutthroat companies, shadowy clans and a million agendas, spy agency RIM barely wields enough control to keep order.
Maximus Black is RIM’s star cadet. But he has a problem. One of RIM’s best agents, Anneke Longshadow, knows there’s a mole in the organisation.
And Maximus has a lot to hide...
An epic finish to a fantastic trilogy!!
Such a thrilling read! Paul has written an exceptional trilogy, and I never imaged so much could happen to both Anneke and Maximus in such a short time.
I highly recommend The Maximus Black Files to any Science Fiction Fan. All school libraries should have many copies for their students to read.
The Maximus Black Files is by far the most advanced Science Fiction read you’ll find. It’s set way into the future. Travelling through the universe is much more advanced than what you see on any episode of Stargate SG1.
It was very exciting to learn more about Maximus Black in this book. More of his history was revealed in The Only Game in the Galaxy than the previous two books.
