Genre: Contemporary, legal thriller, science fiction
Geneva, 2012. Disgraced lawyer Daniel Athley starts a job with a shadowy international organisation that has a secret it will kill to protect – the past can be changed. Working for the enigmatic Counsellor Winter, Dan’s role is to defend the status quo. Discovering a plot that could unleash chaos in a disordered future, he must choose a side in a murky world where the fate of the dead is decided.
Ethical dilemmas, science fiction and a courtroom thriller all in one, thought-provoking novel…
Daniel Athley, while awaiting news of whether his actions at a work party will result in dismissal, gets recruited into the shadowy Le Département de la Dernière Justice in Geneva. And so begins a tale of moral checks and balances, legal imperfections, and ill-advised use of scientific advancements…
The plot was tight, the writing descriptive and suspenseful, the ethical issues raised provided food for thought and the sci-fi element was realistically incorporated into a contemporary legal thriller. A good read.
