BRED TO KILL was first published in French. The version I read was in English and translated from French by Mark Polizzotti.
Former Chief Inspector at the Violent Crimes Unit, Franck Sharko is totally drained both physically and emotionally after he suffered some personal losses. The inspector decides to take a demotion and joins a new unit. He joins his colleagues to investigate some bizarre and very brutal murders that there seems to be no explanation for. To help solve these murders, Franck will need to learn genetics, anthropology, paleontology and evolutionary biology.
The author wrote a dark, very violent and melodramatic novel. Readers who loved "Syndrome E" will want to read Bred to Kill. The question is, will Franck be able to solve the murders? The author made the detectives creative and bold, even though they had their flaws.
Overall readers who love deep thrillers will enjoy this book.
In the shocking sequel to runaway international bestseller Syndrome E, Lucie Henebelle and Inspector Sharko have reunited to take on the case of the brutal murder of Eva Louts, a promising graduate student who was killed while working at a primate research center outside Paris. But what first appears to be a vicious animal attack soon proves to be something more sinister. What was Eva secretly researching? Was she tracking three fanatical scientists who control a thirty-thousand-year-old virus with plans to unleash it into the world?
With his unmatched ability to inject cutting-edge science into his novels, Thilliez draws on genetics, paleontology, and the dark side of human nature to create this smart, adrenaline-fueled thriller. Bred to Kill moves from the rain-slicked streets of Paris to the heart of the Alps to the remote
Amazon jungle as Lucie and Sharko work to solve the murder before whoever killed Eva comes for them.
