Book Description

18 Sep 2013
A murder case, but the murderer is already behind bars. A new technology, which is ripping society apart. One man, on whom the fate of a continent will rest. In a European courtroom a unique litigation case begins. The murderer has already been found guilty and sentenced, but the victim's father believes he lost his daughter because the killer saw a violent film. The proof is in a new, powerful brain scan that in moments can extract all of a person's memories and thoughts. Alek Moreyl is the young litigator who must convince the judges that the film told the murderer to kill the girl. To help him he has an expert in this new technology, but the defendants also have their own expert intent on disproving the claim. After tense courtroom hearings and just as the case is about to be resolved, disaster strikes the city. Thousands are killed, Alek barely escapes with his life, and he finds himself sucked into a frightening world of political intrigue, danger and terrorism.

4.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing book with a complex difference 7 Nov 2012
By J. Teal
Format:Paperback
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Head Trip 30 Dec 2010
By Croach
Format:Paperback
This book is what you would get if Oliver Stone, Michael Crichton and John Grisham were to get together and have a love child after consuming far too much Polish vodka. I found it to be thrilling, enthralling, clever and poignant. This is a new book which does not seem to be very well known at the moment, but you really need to sit down and read this. It's a game changer.

5.0 out of 5 stars a terrific debut novel 20 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback
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!

By Caeler

I throughly enjoyed reading this book. I found this exciting and thrilling and I got really absorbed within its theme. I didn't want to put this down until I finished it. I enjoyed the compliments the front cover got whilst I was reading it too! This is a great first book and I can't wait to see what comes next!! What ever it is I really hope it comes soon.

Pretentious and badly written.

The author himself describes it as "self-published futuristic rubbish" and suggests it for the top 10 list of the worst books of 2010 on Guardian online.
