When Reuben Maitland discovers that his long-abandoned work on Behavioural Profiling, to predict latent homicidal behaviour from people's DNA, is being put back on track at his old unit GeneCrime, he knows he has to act. Only Reuben knows that the Behavioural Profiling technology is dangerously flawed, and innocent lives are threatened.
Everybody has their breaking point. The point beyond which anything is possible, where you would fight, attack, do things your rational self would never condone. The point beyond which you might even kill. How hard would you have to be pushed before you snapped? There is a killer loose on the London Underground. He kills without leaving any forensic trace, and seemingly without motive. Genecrime, the UK's elite forensic unit, are stretched to the limits trying to find one usable clue. And there is another problem facing Genecrime. Before he was sacked as head of the unit, Reuben Maitland developed a system to predict latent homicidal behaviour from people's DNA. Now rogue elements in the police, believing that prevention is better than cure, are using 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.
