  • "Un corps de femme est découvert, violé, mutilé et couvert de graffitis obscènes, dans un Londres ravagé par la violence en 2013. Aidé d'un génie de l'informatique, l'inspecteur Jokowicz commence une double enquête, à la fois policière et philosophique, pour traquer le tueur."
  • ""A Londres, en 2013, les investigations conduites par Scotland Yard profitent d'une technologie de pointe. Mais quelques meurtriers sont su s'adapter à cette nouvelle donne : l'un d'entre eux vient d'infiltrer l'ordinateur central du ministère de l'Intérieur. Que l'homme signe chacun des ses méfaits du nom de Wittgenstein, l'illustre auteur du Cahier brun, n'est pas la moindre des énigmes. L'inspecteur Jakowicz, héroïne combattante, décide de mener l'enquête à son terme. Au cours de cette passionnante traque dans le cyberspace, le concours d'un informaticien hors pair et d'un professeur de Cambridge ne sera sans doute pas de trop."
  • "A Philosophical Investigation is a gripping and thought-provoking thriller with a difference which takes the reader on a terrifying journey into the head of a serial killer and to the heart of murder itself. London in 2013 is a world of elaborate technology, aggression, and squalor, where serial murder has reached epidemic proportions and the government has created a test to screen people for a predisposition to violent criminality. Examined at random, a man is stunned to learn that he fits the model. Yet, when he breaks into the computer to erase his name and comes across the list of his "brothers," a horrifyingly logical idea begins to form in his mind: what if, to protect society, he became a killer of serial murderers?"
