This novel is both a classic police detective and a social science fiction. Or, you may call it a dystopian warning. As the name suggests, the action happens in not-so-distant future. The detective part is thrilling: an FBI Special Agent follows a serial killer case. In the science fiction part, the reader will not find any robots, or flying cars, or super-computers. The end of our world does not come from zombies raised from the graves (although one “zombie” is positively present.) There are no viruses that kill a person in under thirty seconds (although, there are viruses that positively can kill.) There are no continent-size volcanoes, asteroid showers and aliens from the outer space, and no Noah's Flood (although one flood is positively present, but very local.) Does not sound too scary to be a good read? Well, the global catastrophe described in the book is presently on-going! The world created by the author's imagination is remarkably similar and at the same time - remarkably dissimilar to our own, and yet – believable.
