People who have the latter ability are called decoys and work for the police force. But then there's a decoy on the loose who is committing mass murders, and it's the protagonist's (Nero Cavallo's) job to catch her.
There's a whole host of fascinating characters in this story and complex weaving plot. The world itself feels very dystopian and the writing style reminds me somewhat of Vonnegut with short punctuated scenes and a hell of a lot going on at once.
This is fresh novel work of literature which I'm pleased to have discovered. I'll be looking out for more from this author.
The hero, Nero Cavallo, is a policeman with a troubling gift and a tragic past. He must track down a mass murderer, leading a pack of genetically-engineered foxes, while his political masters strive for their own advantage. Meanwhile, the city lurches towards chaos.
An atmospheric and gripping thriller that will leave you guessing until the end.

Even harder to figure out than today's topsy turvy world
Not to be missed if one is into the genre. Enjoy!
The book postulates a not-too-distant future where several mutant strains of mankind have emerged. All well and good, but it isn’t that type of story. What it is, is a story of societal breakdown where major cities – we can assume world-wide – have come apart. Authorities have designated specific zones in those cities ranging from the ‘Free Zone’ to the ‘Double Red.’ The latter zones are controlled by gangs and not even the police venture inside, at least not without permission from the gangs that control them.
Certain officers, called ‘decoys,’ are used to help keep those gangs from spreading; now one or more decoys have turned avenging angel.
And that’s all I’m going to tell you. An avenging angel, a relentless cop with a mutation (too much?), and I have already downloaded book two and have started reading.
