Abstract:

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?

Inspector "Jake" Jacowicz must use all her powers of reason and intuition to track this extraordinary sociopath, code-named "Wittgenstein," who draws her into a diabolical cat-and-mouse game and engages her in a chilling "philosophical" dialogue about the nature of life itself. Philip Kerr has produced a deeply satisfying work of suspense which puts him in the front rank of writers in the genre.
