9780099736417: Philosophical Investigation

21st-century London is a world of elaborate technology, uncontained violence and sickening squalor, where serial killing has reached epidemic proportions. Chief Inspector Jakowicz needs all her powers of reason and intuition to stop a killer whose selection of victims threatens government security.

From the Publisher:

"Kerr deftly weaves nitty-gritty police work with chilling glimpses into a psycho's mind."
- New York Times Book Review

"Makes the brain cells as well as the hairs on the back of the neck tingle."
-GQ Magazine

"Kerr's is the sort of crime writing in which ideas dazzle and move the reader."
-Times Literary Supplement

From the Inside Flap:

When the English government mandates genetic testing for predisposition to violence in the early 21st century, it also creates an elaborate computer network to store the results. But when a computer expert with just such a violent predisposition breaks into the carefully-guarded data, he decides to protect the rest of society by killing off others on the list.

Enter Inspector "Jake" Jakowicz, a tough, smart cop who must use all her powers of intuition to track the sociopath who wants to draw her into a chilling dialogue about the nature of life itself.
