A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Set in the future, in a London of elaborate technology, violence and squalor. Serial killings of women have reached epidemic levels, but someone has other targets - a man codenamed Charles Dickens being his 8th. Chief Inspector Isabel Jakowicz must find him. By the author of "The Pale Criminal".

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.
