London, 2013, and the city is battling an epidemic of serial killings - even with the widespread government use of DNA detection, brain-imaging, and the 'punitive coma'.

Detective Isadora 'Jake' Jacowicz is hunting a murderer, code-named 'Wittgenstein,' who has taken it upon himself to eliminate anyone who has tested positive for a tendency towards violent behaviour - even if they've never committed a crime.

His intellectual brilliance is matched only by his homicidal madness.

Chilling...absorbing...part techno-thriller, part futuristic detective story, part diary of a serial killer - The New York Times Book Review One of the more imaginative thrillers in quite a while...Combines teleological speculations with nitty-gritty futuristic police work - Wall Street Journal A truly intellectual thriller that makes the brain cells as well as the hairs on the back of the neck tingle - GQ The brainest thriller to come along in years...raising questions about knowledge, proof, and reality in unnervingly dramatic contexts - Kirkus Reviews
