The Cassandra Complex
This is a science fiction novel of enormous scope, filled with wonders. Set earlier in the same "future history" as Inherit the Earth, Architects of Emortality, and The Fountains of Youth, The Cassandra Complex is the independent story of events crucial to the creation of the universe in which the others take place. It is the twenty-first century, a world of rapid change and biotech threats and promises. World War Three, the biotech war, is on the horizon and the world as we know it is going to end.
The fateful question is, who is going to choose the kind of future that will follow, and who gets to live in this new world to come? Lisa Frieman, a forensic researcher working for the police, is attacked in her apartment.

Jordan Miller, a distinguished scientist with whom Lisa once worked, has disappeared with a secret discovery. I was a little wary of having this book spoiled for me - this is the first of Brian's novels to be expanded from a short story that I've already read - The Magic Bullet. I needn't have feared, Brian hasn't just reused the premise, but extended it significantly. In fact the extension is crucial in order to understand the Emortality series; though The Cassandra Complex is much more than a filler, it's an integral part of Brian's future history, linking our era with that of Inherit the Earth.
Like the first Emortality novel, this is a taut, exciting thriller, which follows Lisa Freimann as she unravels the mysterious kidnapping of friend and colleague Morgan Miller, and the total destruction of Mouseworld, a legendary experiment in population dynamics.

Beyond the story, there are meditations on Malthusian concerns about rising population and Brian neatly explodes the myth of lemmings with the charm and clarity of Richard Dawkins. The Emortality series is really beginning to shape up into something impressive and it's already tempting to say it's beginning to rival the Werewolves trilogy as his best work.
Brian is writing as well as he ever has and there's no doubt that The Cassandra Complex is one of the best things he's ever written. The Fountains of Youth. This is a science fiction novel of enormous scope, filled with wonders. It is the twenty-first century, a world of rapid change and biotech threats and promises.
