This is my second rendezvous with this author, my first with The Second Internet Cafe - Part 1 The Dimension Researcher. My opinion of him then was that he's an excellent and intelligent writer, one who can make you turn pages faster than you ever thought possible. Class Action was, in fact, his debut novel and my goodness, he certainly knew how to make an inaugural splash.

The story is set in a Warsaw courtroom. A man is in prison for the murder of a young woman, but it falls upon a young Polish litigator, Alex Moreyl, to prove that he committed the murder after seeing a violent film: that a powerful message during the film was relayed to the culprit, telling him to commit the crime. The proof? Advanced technology that enables every thought that's ever entered a person's head to be extracted and read. With convincing evidence from an expert in the field, the case looks as if it will be done and dusted in no time. But a catastrophic event throws Alex into a dangerous, ruthless, political battlefield between powerful entities, one in which he almost loses his life and those of his wife and family are in grave danger.

This is a futuristic thriller, brilliantly written. It's original and clever; clever, because although the process of compulsory brain scanning is an almost unthinkable eventuality, the events of the political arena and dangers and threats of terrorism, however, are not so far removed from the present day. Technology, it seems, may advance in leaps and bounds, but nothing changes in politics or in the fight for supremacy between major states. This is a book that takes a glimpse into the future but touches base with present-day reality.

Action, intrigue, excitement, thrills, complexity, vision. This book has all those things.

Oh, and authorial genius.

I received a complimentary of this book in order to review it.

I first read this fast moving, dramatic novel in late 2011. Recently, I picked it up again for a re-read (something I've done before with Chris James's novels because I enjoy his writing so much). I was glad to discover that the novel still grabs me and is just as powerful on second reading!

Full of action and intrigue, the author has created a future filled with concepts of new technology and rising world politics. As the years have ticked on, I'm amazed (and you will be too!) at just how spot on his ideas have been. James's predictions have proven eerily prescient!

I was pulled into the story right at the beginning by the detailed legal setting, the ominous 'new technology', and by the cast of characters who may all be quite different than they first appear. I really had to pay attention as I read to keep up with the elements of the story but I think that's half the fun of reading this book.

If you are someone who enjoys complex, well told stories and is willing to be totally taken in by the alternate/future/different world presented, and, quite frankly, if you're willing to have some late late nights reading because you can't put the book down, DEFINITELY give this book a buy!

When Chris asked me for help in this project I didn't realise in what I was actually involved. This is a really good read entertaining, informative book, which treats you like you can think for yourself and also very patriotic for me as a Polish person. Realistic characters, no clichés, knowledge of technologies and science - a terrific debut novel. Can't wait for the next book!
