  • "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?"
