Forensic investigator Luke Harding is assigned to a hospital with a mysteriously high rate of fatalities. Investigating several suspicious deaths, Luke meets his long-lost father, working as a doctor there. This is no happy family reunion, though, as Luke's father's DNA is found at several of the crime scenes, making him Luke's prime suspect. Can Luke solve the case and clear his father's name? Imagine a place where technology rules... where London is a slum and the North is a cultural capital... where from the age of five, The Authorities decide your future. In this fascinating parallel world, quick-thinking Luke Harding is the youngest Forensic Investigator ever, aged just 16. Luke and his right-hand robot, Malc, make a top team. Together, they have the talent to crack any crime - and a good joke, too.
