Breaking point by John Macken( Book )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 451 libraries worldwide
There is a killer loose on the London underground. He kills without leaving any forensic trace, and seemingly without motive. The UK's elite forensic unit is stretched to the limits trying to find one usable clue. And there is another problem. Before he was sacked as head of the unit, Reuben Maitland developed a system to predict future homicidal behaviour from people's DNA. Now rogue elements in the police are employing Reuben's research to hunt down and incite latent psychopaths beyond their breaking point. Reuben must track down whoever is misusing his technology and stop them before more lives are destroyed. But what he cannot know is that his investigation will lead him directly into the path of the underground killer

Reuben Maitland has lost everything - his job, his marriage, his reputation. Fired from CID's elite forensic investigation unit, he is forced to turn to the other side of the law to find work. Michael Brawn is currently enjoying the hospitality of Her Majesty at Pentonville maximum-security prison. He is not who he claims to be. He has been placed there on forged genetic evidence. Evidence that was submitted to the court on Reuben's authority. But who is he, and why is he there? Reuben is offered one chance to clear his name. He needs to discover Brawn's real identity and, more importantly, his reason for falsely entering prison. And there is only one way of getting to him. Reuben is going to have to enter Pentonville. But as he is about to find out, prison is a very dangerous place for an ex-copper to be

Two deaths, days apart but clearly linked. Each victim has had the tips of their fingers removed with a hacksaw. Reuben Maitland, freshly returned to GeneCrime, is heading up the case. The forensics come in, DNA is sampled, the clues begin to mount up. Then the killer strikes again, but not to kill. Reuben's young son is snatched. The murderer sends Reuben a message: 'Stop hunting me. Come after me and your son will die.' Reuben now faces the choice every cop dreads: the price of stopping a psychopath from killing again could be the life of his own child
