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 watched a violent film. The proof is in a new, powerful brain scan that in moments can extract all of a person’s memories, thoughts and feelings.
Alek Moreyl is the young, unwitting litigator who has to convince the judges that the film told the murderer to kill the girl. To help him he has an expert in this new technology who will navigate the court through the complexity of the case. However, 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 suddenly 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.
Soon Alek realises that he is the linchpin connecting the murder case, acts of terrorism and the dangerous political brinksmanship. This case has drawn the intense interest of the world’s most powerful states, who will stop at nothing to ensure that their plans for the future succeed. Across the continent Alek must struggle against impossible odds to understand the truth; to save his family, his country, and himself.
