Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books that we are eagerly waiting to read.
Killer Instinct by S.E. Green
Release Date: May 6, 2014
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Lane is a typical teenager. Loving family. Good grades. Afterschool job at the local animal hospital. Martial arts enthusiast. But her secret obsession is studying serial killers. She understands them, knows what makes them tick.
Because she might be one herself.
Lane channels her dark impulses by hunting criminals—delivering justice when the law fails. The vigilantism stops shy of murder. But with each visceral rush the line of self-control blurs.
And then a young preschool teacher goes missing. Only to return… in parts.
When Lane excitedly gets involved in the hunt for “the Decapitator,” the vicious serial murderer that has come to her hometown, she gets dangerously caught up in a web of lies about her birth dad and her own dark past. And once the Decapitator contacts Lane directly, Lane knows she is no longer invisible or safe. Now she needs to use her unique talents to find the true killer’s identity before she—or someone she loves—becomes the next victim…
Why I’m Waiting
Serial killers? A serial killer hunter who happens to be a teenage girl?? Can you say awesome? I couldn’t imagine being a teenager and willingly putting myself in harm’s way to hunt down serial killers. Who does that? Lane sounds so badass and I can’t wait to get inside her head. KILLER INSTINCT sounds thrilling and exciting and scary, all at the same time. I took Forensics in high school and we dedicated a whole month to studying serial killers. I’m super excited to see what the ones in this book are like and what it is about them that has Lane so intrigued. Hurry up, May!
